The Long Island Cannibal Massacre

The Long Island Cannibal Massacre ★★★½

Long Island Cannibal Massacre bumps along like a rickety murder van, but those hard Lawng Guyland accents and barren winter beaches add charm and heart and local color to an otherwise predictable no-budget slasher. But that final act hits harder than a lawnmower to the face! Lepers, chainsaw fights, impalements, gratuitous fountains of gore, and a li'l haunting twist will remain seared into my mind's eye for some time. Writer/director/producer Nathan Schiff does a lot with a little from ambitious plot reversals (for backyard horror) to inventive murder set pieces. Ya can't knock the guy for making a feature for the price of a used jalopy and mostly succeeding!
