Storyline

People are showing up sliced and diced at Tall Grass Country Club. Norman, the owner of the club, wants to avoid undue publicity on the eve of the televised pro-am tournament, and encourages new pro Roy to get to the bottom of the killings quietly. Roy has a history of alcohol problems since he choked while playing a big tournament years before, and Kelly, who feels she should have been hired as the new pro, isn't making the situation easier for him, insisting they cancel the tournament until the killer can be stopped. After a seedy character named Deke Slater is arrested, the owner relaxes, but Roy and Kelly begin to feel that Deke's rantings about a runaway lawnmower aren't so far-fetched after all, and after Deke is released the three of them prepare for a battle to the death out on the uncharted fairways.

This is not the film you think it is...
28 April 2004 | by petru05See all my reviews

This movie has exactly what you expect in a B horror movie; bad acting, low budget, and comedic horror that doesn't take itself too seriously. The added bonus on this tale of terror on the golf course is that it mirrors the plot of Jaws almost to a tee (pun intended). What otherwise would be a really, really stupid story becomes merely ludicrous and funny when compared to the plot from which it originates. If you are wanting a B-movie full of fun, poor golf humor, even poorer acting, and a possessed lawn mower, then your prayers have been answered. This movie is quality B shlock horror and should be seen for the cheese factor alone. I wonder if Spielberg knows that one of his greatest works has been brought down to this level...
