Meatcleaver Massacre

This film could be used as a benchmark for how filmmaking can go wrong. It’s not often that the triumvirate of incoherent story-telling, poor directing, and suicide attempts that are called off due to being late for work come together quite like this.

Meatcleaver Massacre begins with Christopher Lee narrating a story that has absolutely nothing to do with this film and that is because the filmmakers of this flick bought the footage of Lee without his knowledge and bookended their film with it. A dodgy move if I have ever heard of one.

A professor berates some students during their lesson about demons so the kids decide to brutally kill him and his family. The family dies but the professor survives with a fractured skull but is confined to a mostly vegetable state.

This doesn’t prevent him from summoning a demon to exact revenge on the kids who did him wrong though.

The demon runs around with a meat cleaver and kills piles of people. Nope. That actually doesn’t happen. There is no meat cleaver in the entire film. This would be dodgy move number two.

The demon is actually invisible and causes the kids to have nightmares. These nightmares feel like some kind of film school garbage full of random shots similar to Lynch, but done without any talent.

Nothing interesting happens and what does happen is so poorly executed that is comes off as boring drivel.

This is easily one of the worst horror films ever made. The only left to say is kudos to the filmmakers for their dodgy moves – without them no one would have ever heard of this garbage.
