Motel Hell (Includes DVD) Blu-ray


Sold Out

Availability: Sold out


“It takes all kinds of critters to make Farmer Vincent fritters!” cackle the brother-and-sister team behind the finest smoked meats in the county. They also run the friendly Motel Hello (the ‘o’ in the neon sign sometimes goes on the blink), and no matter how many times you’ve seen Psycho or The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, you can be sure that everything will be perfectly above board here as Vincent’s brother Bruce is the local sheriff.

Western veteran Rory Calhoun gives a lipsmackingly demented performance as Farmer Vincent, whose twinkling bonhomie conceals a deeply depraved secret.

Directed by Kevin Connor (maker of much-loved British genre classics The Land That Time Forgot and Warlords of Atlantis) and with legendary DJ Wolfman Jack as a fire-and-brimstone TV preacher, this is a gleefully twisted horror-comedy that climaxes with a showstopping chainsaw duel.

A Great Cult Movie

Total :


Well back in the early 1980's, Motel hell was just another B movie wasn't it? Well actually no it was better than that, even then it was clear that this film would have a loyal following well into the future. Motel Hell is a very unusual but highly watchable black comedy from a time of the video nasties. The acting is deliberately over the top by actors who have proven themselves and their acting ability in the past many times. The transfer to blu ray is as good as you can expect from a film that was filmed on a very low budget. It is noticeably better than the DVD release, but not as good as a blockbuster film would look. This is a film which can be watched over and over and it certainly causes you to laugh out load on a number of occasions. Take my advice and grab a copy, you will be glad you did. Arrow have produced a product with both the blu ray and the DVD, and also a well produced booklet about the film etc.
