Storyline

Based on the Imperium Comics series, Trailer Park of Terror. Six troubled high school students and their chaperon, an optimistic youth ministries Pastor, return from an outdoor character building retreat in the mountains. During a raging storm, their bus crashes, hopelessly stranding them in the middle of the Trucker's Triangle, a forgotten locus of consummate evil in the middle of nowhere. The hapless group seeks shelter for the night in a seemingly abandoned trailer park they find down the road. However, when the sun sets, it's not refuge they find. Instead, terror finds them in the form of Norma, a damned redneck reaper with a killer body who dispenses vengeance and death aided by her cursed companions, a bloodthirsty brood of Undead trailer trash.

It is barely noticeable, but when "Norma" brings in a propane tank for grills the valve handle is the old style round. When she turns the handle it changes to the new federally mandated O.P.D. (Overfill Prevention Device) indicator style handle. Then right before she lights her cigarette it switches back to the old style tank handle. See more »

Solid & Entertaining
11 November 2008 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Norma is a pretty young thing who has had more than her fill of the chauvinist thugs that live in and and pretty much rule her trailer park. She is all set to get out of there, but things don't go quite according to plan...This brings us to a decade or so later, when a bus of wild teenagers who are undergoing a faith intervention, wind up at the aforementioned trailer park.

'Trailer Park of Terror' relies heavily on stereotypes. From the uncouth, sickening residents that occupy the trailer park, to the goth chick, the whore and the jock. Saying that, the cast mostly put their all in, and performances are above average.

This flick is also chock full of excellent one-liners, and I found it very amusing. It doesn't look distinctly low budget, and there are a good few stylish camera tricks here and there. The gore is good enough, and there's one particularly nasty scene.

There's not much in the way of plot here, most things are left unexplained. I found that rather interesting. My only quip is the ending, which felt very rushed and disappointing. My score would have been an 8, otherwise.

All in all, Trailer Park of a Terror is a good tongue-in-cheek, entertaining flick, with plenty of hilarious one-liners and memorable characters.

Worth your time.
