Month of Horror continues with Mountaintop Motel Massacre

Now let me preface this post by saying this is NOT one of my favorite horror movies of all time, but it was just quirky enough for me to add to the list. This is one of the movies I found available on Netflix, but I had to search for it on the website and add it from there.

"Please do not disturb Evelyn. She already is."


Released in 1983, the movie revolves around Evelyn, the owner of the Mountaintop Motel. There she runs the facility with her daughter. However all is not right w/ Evelyn. Having recently been released from an insane asylum, she kills her daughter in a fit of rage. She tries to make it look like an accident to the local police however. From then on she starts terrorizing her guests in the motel.

Is movie is one of those classic 80's B rate horror flicks. Its really cheesy, yet it continued to hold my interest until the end. Perhaps it was the actress Anna Chappell who plays Evelyn. She was so crazy I had to see what she was going to do next. The acting is pretty bad, however the bright spots had to be Anna and Major Brock, who portrays Crenshaw, one of the guests. The lighting is pretty poor and with the movie taking place a night (during a thunderstorm no less) it can be hard to tell what's going on at times. 

This movie is not worth buying, but you can stream it on Netflix and Amazon Instant Video. If you like cheesy, low budget 80's horror then you may want to look this one up.
