A weekend retreat turns into a fight for their lives when a group of five hard-partying college students crosses paths with a demented gang of motorcycle marauders and their hideously disfigured leader in this tale of terror featuring Picket Fences star Costas Mandylor. The lake may be calling, but the crystal clear water turns blood red when the sadistic Dr. Chopper and his band of nurses begin stalking the students to harvest their body parts. After endless years of transplants, Dr. Chopper and the nurses have been rendered psychically repulsive and mentally unhinged, and the only way for the creepy crew to keep themselves alive is to harvest the body parts of their victims. When Jessica and her friends are stalked through the woods and locked away in Dr. Chopper's blood-soaked lair of doom, their only hope for survival is to turn the tables on their captor and kill or be killed.

Silly gimmick for a slasher film.
7 October 2014 | by DigitalRevenantX7See all my reviews

Celebrated plastic surgeon Dr. Max Fielding goes on the run after police link him to a series of killings. Twenty years later a group of young friends head to the countryside town of Lake Tatonka in order to unwind. But the town is cursed by the presence of Fielding, now known as "Dr. Chopper" due to his unique method of transportation (a chopper motorcycle) & army of demented nurses. At the same time, the local park ranger, a burnt-out shell of a man named Terrel, must find the inner strength to do his job properly.

Zombie fans will have heard of & curse the name of Lewis Schoenbrun. Schoenbrun was an editor dragged into the quagmire that was called Children of the Living Dead after writer-producer Karen Lee Wolf fired the film's director & crew & enlisted Schoenbrun to re-edit the film. The result was an unholy mess. This should have been enough to have the editor disappear from the genre without trace, but things seldom turn out that way. In 2005, Schoenbrun managed to get the chance to direct his own film. The result was Dr. Chopper.

Dr. Chopper is pretty much a pedestrian slasher flick that has almost nothing to redeem it enough to be watchable. But Schoenbrun surprises by having some skill in editing the film – this one's a lot more coherent than COTLD was. Having said that, the film is nowhere near good enough to warrant a viewing unless you want to see Australian actor & future SAW villain Costas Mandylor do his best glass-munching (the act of doing extreme emotions in an OTT way) & Ed Brigadier walking around in biker garb.
