Storyline

Based on the Imperium Comics series, Trailer Park of Terror. Six troubled high school students and their chaperon, an optimistic youth ministries Pastor, return from an outdoor character building retreat in the mountains. During a raging storm, their bus crashes, hopelessly stranding them in the middle of the Trucker's Triangle, a forgotten locus of consummate evil in the middle of nowhere. The hapless group seeks shelter for the night in a seemingly abandoned trailer park they find down the road. However, when the sun sets, it's not refuge they find. Instead, terror finds them in the form of Norma, a damned redneck reaper with a killer body who dispenses vengeance and death aided by her cursed companions, a bloodthirsty brood of Undead trailer trash.

It is barely noticeable, but when "Norma" brings in a propane tank for grills the valve handle is the old style round. When she turns the handle it changes to the new federally mandated O.P.D. (Overfill Prevention Device) indicator style handle. Then right before she lights her cigarette it switches back to the old style tank handle. See more »

Nothing short of spectacular...
21 October 2011 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Wow! This movie totally took me by surprise. Initially I bought it because it is a zombie movie, but I had not imagined that the movie would be this cool. If you liked "Shaun of the Dead", then you definitely want to check out "Trailer Park of Terror".

The story is pretty straight forward, and as you would expect of any horror movie; something sinister happened in the past, then many years pass by and a bunch of teenagers find themselves in the location of the grizzly deed that happened many years in the past. And then it all takes a turn for the worse. Enter the hillbilly zombies!

"Trailer Park of Terror" combines three great things into one great movie; humor, gore and really amazing zombie make-up. I was in awe at the effects of this movie, and it was really obvious that Drac Studios are really knowing what they are doing. Hats off to them for the amazing effects they have pulled off on the zombies in this movie. That make-up and special effects alone make it worth sitting down and watching the movie.

And the music score/soundtrack for this movie was really great as well. Very well picked music that worked well for every scene. And the song that the zombie was singing when he was on top of the trailer, that was just phenomenal. It was so well placed for the movie and the timing of the story.

The cast they put together for this movie was nice as well, though I didn't really recognize anyone here. But that doesn't matter, because they did great jobs, and it is refreshing to see new faces in movies every now and then. And I must say that it was really the zombies that carried the movie, because they had so much personality, and they were hilarious. (Plus their make-up really helped them well along the way.)

"Trailer Park of Terror" is really a gem much like "Shaun of the Dead" in the zombie genre. There is a lot of humor in this movie, so don't except to see a Romero style zombie movie here.

I am a huge fan of zombie movies, and once in awhile I stumble upon a zombie movie that perfectly incorporates comedy into an otherwise gore-stained and serious genre. "Trailer Park of Terror" is a definite MUST watch for all zombie fans.
