Killer Pad Review
Written by: grimreality
Last night I finally got to watch my copy of Killer Pad, which I had to get as Robert Englund is involved. This is another low budget horror flick but more in line with the 80s' teen horror genre.
The story is based in 3 small town hicks who move away from mom and dad and end up in Hollywood looking for a place to live. They manage to wrangle their way into renting a house with a beautiful view for next to nothing. To help ease the pain of leaving home and to (of course) score some tail they decide to throw a house warming party.
The beginning of the movie is taken by them trying to find a place and then trying to get the party planned so they can fulfill thier carnal desires.
Some of the characters can be placed in old 80s' horror and comedy flicks which I found actually did add to the movie, especially if you are an older film buff.
There is no over kill in the movie and the few deaths that do occur (ten in total I believe) are usually done off screen.
A lot of the humor in the film will be lost on people who have sophisticated tastes, but it does have a lot to offer those who are not detered by this in the humor.
The whole idea is based around a hole to hell in the basement of the house (Gate). This whole has released demons who will kill through carnal desires.
The characters are a bit over the top but this is done wonderfully by the actors, who keep everything flowing.
The lack of on screen deaths do not take away from the movie as this helps remove the issue with bad special effects.
The end sequence of the film with the need to sing a holy song to rid the demons was one of the best parts.
I would recommend this film if you have an evening where you just want to watch a film that is reminiscent of the old horrors from the 80s' then this is the film for you.
