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.

This movie was so bad that I'm actually sad that Costas Mandylor was in it.
29 August 2011 | by ashgameoverSee all my reviews

I can't even begin to say how horrible this movie is. It has so many plot holes and empty lead ups. The score itself was horrible. I'm not sure why one of the characters was even there, I guess we were supposed to think as a motivation but it really didn't come off believable. In fact this whole film was simply just not believable.

I watched this movie because I love Costas Mandylor as an actor. He has an amazing versatility. For proof of this, I highly recommend the films "Triumph of the Spirit" and "Nobody". I have to actually say that I wish Costas had not done this film. I know Costas has done some movies that are not the best in his time, including Disaster Zone: Volcano In New York which was pretty unbelievable and had the jumpiest camera shots I have ever had to bare in a movie but even that was better than Dr. Chopper. Mainly because at least it had a camp factor that made it highly amusing and entertaining. I can't even say that for Dr. Chopper. What this movie does contain is horrible writing, horrible special effects/makeup, and completely empty characters lacking any substance. Seriously, I can't even think of one character that I liked in the film - including (as much as it hurts to say it) Costas Mandylor's character. It also had a completely anti-climactic ending, and a lot of predictability.

The only redeeming qualities about this film and the reasons why I gave it 3 stars: the acting was halfway decent - not the best in the world but I have certainly seen worse, Costas Mandylor was in it (although he should not have been because he can do better), at least the camera shots were stable and I actually think this could have been an entertaining horror movie if the writers had developed the plot/character more. It was an interesting, albeit unoriginal, idea and I would like to see someone do a remake of it and do it some actual justice. That being said, I really don't see myself EVER sitting through this god awful movie again. It was actually really painful to watch. The only remote reason I can think of suggesting someone to watch this film is if they are a hardcore fan of any of the actors in it, just to ease the curiosity and to realize that they should not have been in this film. Otherwise, I would strongly recommend avoiding it.
