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. —Ed Sutton <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Not a parody, but more of a reenactment of "Jaws".
This movie is basically a parody of "Jaws". It took me a bit to get it, but once they strung up the lawn mower I finally got it. I realized they were doing "Jaws" before then, but not until that moment did I realize it was almost purely a "Jaws" parody. The problem, it takes itself a bit too seriously for a parody. That is why I say it is more of a reenactment where instead of an ocean they use a golf course, instead of a shark you have a lawn mower, and so on. For some scenes this works and I chuckled a couple of times, at other times there are long stretches of dialogue that just do not belong in a parody movie or a Troma movie for that matter. Still, this is a company known for its bad movies, and this one is better than a lot of the movies I have seen from them. I just wonder why they and Full Moon Entertainment have to always make horror comedy movies rather than straight horror. Seems to me a straight horror would be easier to make because lets face it most of the movies that come out of these two companies get really low scores. Though to be fair Full Moon has done a few straight horror movies in their day. I have never seen one from Troma. This one has its moments especially the scenes in the van where they were really spoofing "Jaws" in this case I think they just needed to make this one a bit funnier.
