Horror Movie Review: Carnage: The Legend of Quiltface (2000)

Sometimes all it takes is a title to make you want to watch a horror. A title that tells you all you need to know about the movie in question. That is exactly the case with Carnage: The Legend of Quiltface although it is also known as Carnage Road. Not such a great title.

The Legend of Quiltface…doesn’t it say campy, low budget horror that is gloriously entertaining and bloody?

Well, Carnage: The Legend of Quiltface is campy, low budget but not entertaining and not bloody. It’s a very poor slasher horror that sees four photography students hunted by a killer with human skin for a mask.

Four students have headed into the Nevada Desert to take photos for extra credit and on the way hear about the legend of Quiltface. Of course, once out in the middle of nowhere they quickly come across the infamous killer.

While anyone survive the horror in the desert?

This is a bad movie. An ugly looking thing with a paper-thin plot and atrocious acting. The characters are the worst kind of characters for horror, unremarkable at their best and utterly forgettable at their worst. Not only that but they’re so stupid at times, you’ll be praying for their deaths just so the film will end. Something that really shouldn’t be the case with a movie that has a run-time of 70 minutes! The pacing is all over the place and I can’t imagine many will bother sitting through the entire thing.

Quiltface 4

Playing out like a homage to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes, all this does it expose its weaknesses even more. The total lack of originality is one thing but the film doesn’t even make up for all its problems with a decent amount of gore.

Every kill is pretty much the same. Quiltface swings his machete, the camera cuts and the next scene is the weapon embed in the victim some way. Not that the movie tries to take these seriously either as one character gets a machete in the head and still survives!

A bad one. Avoid.
