A meteor strikes a houseboat in the swamps near a southern town populated by Yankees with fake accents. The people on the houseboat become zombies who feed on the alligators in the swamp. ... See full summary »
A gang of four thieves, having stolen over a million dollars worth of gems, are driving through the remote hill roads of the Carolinas when their jeep runs out of gas. A local moonshiner and his wife offer the strangers a place to stay until they can get help, but the thieves soon take advantage of their hosts. Both the moonshiner's young wife and his supposed hidden fortune prove to be irresistable temptations for the fugitives, but will their greed and jealousy prove to be their downfall?Written by

Producer Fred Olen Ray bought the limited release film Shantytown Honeymoon (1971), shot an introduction scene with John Carradine as The Judge of Hell (5 minutes), and sold it to Troma Films that re-titled it again to "Demented Death Farm Massacre... The Movie (1986). See more »
Another almost unknown '70s "B" cl-ass-sick from Florida.Shot in Dade City for about $5.37.John Carradine has been cut into the film for narration and has nothing to do with the plot at all,a lot like 'the Smoker' in "Blood Freak".It's fun to watch him flub a line or two.What's wrong? Can't read the cue card? Oh well.leave it in.No use in wasting film...Must have been put in later by Troma(?) as he's not in the final credits,which is done with filmed chalk on boards...wow.. guess they didn't want to have to pay a lab!
Cheezy catsup almost-but-not-quite gore,moonshine,cleavage,and bad so called hillbilly dialog are what's in store here.For fans of the "B"/ exploitation/southern drive-in,and hillbilly type films only.Then again,if that wasn't your thing then you wouldn't have known to look up a film called "Demented Death Farm Massacre/Honey Britches " in the first place,right?
I found it to be a fun little film to watch.I could have done without the 'everybody slap the females around for no reason' shots.I don't mind if 'ya wana cut em up into little pieces (sorry, folks none of that here. If that's what your after.) but,let's not be cruel and make it look like normal behavior... please.
Pick one up.Esp. if you can find the $14 "Toxie's Triple Terror vol #1" DVD set with "Curse of the Cannibal Confederates" a.k.a. "Curse of the Screaming Dead"(don't let that scare you away if you don't like it.) "Death Farm..." is a much better film,then again that's not too hard to do..lol, and "Deadly Daphanie's Revenge"(makes a fine coaster)
6.75/10 on the drive-in freak-o-meter....check it out...8)
