For starters, how are we expected to be even slightly frightened for various redneck characters of this film, when the killer is an odd little hag who tries to kill them by dumping roaches and other little critters inside their bedrooms? If this sounds like "Abominable Dr Phibes" don't be fooled. This movie has none of the tongue-in-cheek wit of old Vincent Price flicks and none of the kinky sex appeal of most 80's b-horror flicks. Unlike with most movies of this type, Motel Massacre's pitfalls don't add up to campy popcorn treat. It is rare for a genre movie this bad to be soooo boring and dull. Even if you're a hardcore b-movie fan like myself, you will feel embarrassed just for watching it.
