For five adventurous friends, visiting the legendary murder site of the Redwood House has all the hallmarks of being an exciting and thrilling camping weekend away.

Events take a bloody turn for the worse when the innocent campers discover the Redwood legend is in fact a horrible bloody reality, which turns the unsuspecting victims into prey for a mysterious axe wielding maniac that has remained dormant for 20 years.

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, minute 4:56, Jessica (Rebecca Wilkie) walks into the wood with Pamela. At minute 5:55, at the same place and situation, she looks notoriously skinnier and her make up is a lot different than the previous scene (another eyebrow design, false eyelashes, almost clownish).

Lots of blood, not much of a plot; I enjoyed it, don't know about others
2 June 2015 | by timelesswindSee all my reviews

Firstly, I have to say that I had a great time watching this movie but that's probably because I love those kinds of movies. The Redwood Massacre is a (really) low budget film with lots and lots of blood and features a serial killer hunting down a group of campers. Its plot is just that simple.

Lets start with the good points of the film, and at this point I have to say that I just loved the scenery shown in the movie as well as the inside of the Redwood house. They were really great and the costumes were well-made too. I also liked the variety of the murder scenes and the variety of weapons-tools the killer used. There was a lot action and killings throughout the film so in that aspect you won't easily get bored.

On the other hand, The Redwood Massacre has lots of flaws too. Most of the cast are doing a mediocre job at best but that can't be helped because of the low budget. I enjoyed the death scenes a lot but some of them weren't that well-thought and they really overdid it with the blood. So even though the death scenes are visually enjoyable and bloody(if you like that style) some of them seem unnatural. Also, the quality of the movie drastically drops after the one hour mark. The last 30 minutes of the movie are nowhere as good as the rest of it. Last but not least, in this movie you will find one of the most unnecessary and stupid side-characters found in a movie ever(I won't spoil details so just watch it and see for yourself).

I will give this movie a 6 because I myself liked it and as an appreciation of the effort made in a low budget movie but an objective review would be lower.My advice; watch it if you like bloody slashers but don't expect much of a plot or something "new" or avoid it if you prefer more serious horror films, you won't find that here.
