Bros. You gotta love them right? No matter what decade you are from at one point of your life you were probably one. If the term was as popular in the 80’s as it is now then it would be the words to describe our three friends in the hilarious slasher horror short MASSACRE AT FEMUR CREEK. Classic 80’s styled slasher with tons of laughs and gore. Every element from that time period is present except for your random boob shot (damn). Now worries as there are enough laughs to keep you entertained throughout. Plain and simple MASSACRE AT FEMUR CREEK is a riot and then some!
Tastefully offensive and full of laughs comes this short about three friends looking to camp out for the night with some beer, tunes and less than stellar buds for a birthday. It’s been sometime since they were all three there and a killer is on the loose. This madman looks like a reject from ALICE SWEET ALICE and even though we don’t know his motive it’s of no concern as we know what he is ready to do. It was not necessary for this to really be a time period piece as the comedy of the trio would have fit anywhere. The cast of Nigel Grinstead, Andrew Barr and Dean Young is what makes MASSACRE a treat with great chemistry and and good writing for their parts. The look of the short and music is put together nicely and makes this a drive in feature kids from DAZED AND CONFUSED would have went to see.
We have come to a time where filmmakers are using the resources that are available to them without major concerns of budgets. We can see the true potential in MASSACRE AT FEMUR CREEK so this should be a festival hit as soon as it makes it run. We have seen some great shorts here at HMUNCUT and MASSACRE AT FEMUR CREEK has now been added to that list.
MASSACRE AT FEMUR CREEK is playing at the upcoming 9th Annual Hamilton Film Festival in Hamilton, Ontario. Be on the look out as this hort surely will be playing at many more in the near future. MASSACRE AT FEMUR CREEK is directed by Kyle Hytonen and stars Nigel Grinstead, Andrew Barr, Dean Young, Heather Dickie and John Migliore.
