Summary: The citizens of the southern town Pleasant Valley lure six Yankee tourists into town where they are to be the reluctant guests for the centennial celebration of the day a band of renegade Union troops decimated the town. The town then participates in events, a different event for each of the tourists, in which the tourist is dispatched. One couple begins to suspect something and seeks a way to escape. (imdb)
Filmed with a shoestring budget and awful actors, there are a lot of awkward and clumsy moments in the film. But it has a decent plot, some nice gore effects, and a quirky charm that make it an interesting, though not very good, movie.
Blood Feast is horrible, but this one's the real deal. Contains an actual (wait for it) plot and a lot of tongue in cheek humor. Thomas Wood is the man, and Connie Mason's lack of acting chops is exploited wonderfully here. One of the better HGL films.
Lewis' masterpiece (I guess)...at least, of the ones I've seen. The giddy hilarity of the proceedings had a certain demented charm, and were a welcome change from the usual on-ice atmosphere of his stuff, where it's like you're looking at everything through a wall of glass. The bluegrass band was fine, but the HGL presence could definitely be felt in those organ-heavy riffs throughout. Oh yeah, and the Twilight Zone ending was fun.
