Video Violence (1987)
Warning: Shot On Video
This movie should come with a disclaimer: Warning: Shot on Video....
and no, not the modern-day DV video....but plain-old grab the family video camera and make a movie kind of video.
Believe me, I'm a lover of trashy movies, especially 80's horror, but this was just unwatchable. I could only sit through about the first 20 minutes before shutting it off.
The only thing that was even remotely interesting was seeing the inside of the old-school video store.
The idea of the story is an interesting premise, but the lack of production value ruins it.
Avoid at all costs.
Rare 80's Exploitation Gem: (contains small spoiler)
I remember first seeing this exploitation gem on HBO in the mid 80's, while spending the night at a friends house during 8th grade. It reminded me of a cheaper, dirtier Reform School Girls.
Mary Woronov as the deliciously evil, Dr. Fletcher has some great moments. I especially love when she blows the state inspectors a kiss goodbye while they are leaving the hospital... (after nearly discovering her clandestine, underground chamber of horrors, known simply and ominously as Hell Hole.
Lots of the actors look like rejects from a lame porno movie, and deliver their lines accordingly. One will find themselves alternately rolling their eyes and laughing their butts off while watching this.
The movie also has one of those great, cheesy synthesizer soundtracks to add to the fun. If you enjoy watching a movie just to see how bad it is, filled with senseless violence, drugs and lesbian sex, then watch Hellhole.
