What a great surprise Terror at Blood Fart Lake is. A movie that can proudly wear the ‘so bad it’s good’ badge. It’s so stupid but for 76 minutes, you’ll be very entertained.
The ‘story’ begins by introducing us to Hambone (Billy Garberina). Hambone likes to say his name…a lot. It’s not a great start as whatever this joke is, it fails to land and quickly becomes annoying. I’d imagine a few people would be hitting the off-switch at this point already.
Anyway, after explaining what kind of man Hambone is, Hambone meets his demise. Meanwhile his friends are on route to spend the weekend with him and if you thought Hambone was wacky…
This group of characters are exaggerated caricatures of familiar horror movie victims with stupid voices and constant references to whatever it is they’re supposed to be. Take for example, the goth girl. She talks and acts like Lydia from Beetlejuice. All woe is me and wishing for death all while being a massive horn-dog for Peter Steele (Type O Negative) and Tim Burton.
They have chemistry and together will force a laugh or two out of many. In fact, one of the best things about Terror at Blood Fart Lake is how funny it is. The writing in this movie is top stuff, absurd dialogue delivered with tongues firmly planted in cheeks. The more you watch, the more you’ll find yourself enjoying the dumbness of it all.
After settling in at the cabin and wondering where Hambone has got too, we hear about the legend of Jimmy VanBrunt. Guess who shows up shortly afterwards? Only the campiest killer in horror!
At its core, Terror at Blood Fart Lake is a slasher horror but deserves more credit then that. Simply because it is so hilariously awful that it becomes impossible to not love it. Yes, it’s indie as hell and looks like crap but when everyone is having so much fun on screen, how can you not enjoy it too?
It’s called Terror at Blood Fart Lake. If you’re expecting horror gold, you’re looking in the wrong place. Virtually unknown, this is a movie that deserves cult classic status. Where else can you see a killer be dispatched by being shoved up his sister’s butt where creatures inside devour him leading to her ‘excreting’ his remains back at?
Terror at Blood Fart Lake, that is where!
