starring: Christine McNamara, Robert W. Allen and Michael Elyanow
Paired up back to back with an equally silly home-made slasher flick known as "Attack of the Killer Refrigerator", The Hook of Woodland Heights is an easy-running 40 minutes of backwoods killer cliches that seems to be inspired by a particular urban legend involving a sex-crazed couple and a sinister hook...
Tommy and Katie, a suburban couple, heads off in their car and parks near a cabin deep in the woods, for the occasional premarital sex. (Even if Katie wanted to go to a movie instead) Meanwhile, at a nearby mental asylum, one-handed loonie Mason escapes after crushing an orderly to death behind a door and slicing the other's head with a thrown clipboard.
|Yes. Thrown Clipboard.|
The Hook of Woodland Heights is a terrible movie, but in a sense that it is watchable as a gory B-flick! Running on a short 40 minute, there's a bit of character in this title, quick on the pacing, a fair count on kills, and gory without being mean-spirited nor relying on any big budget effects, may that be a good or bad thing for you.Yes, there's bad acting, schlocky audio and camera work, but compared to most do-it-yourself shlockiness, I am impressed with this one and I am glad to say that it's definitely a keeper! If you can find this title, whether as a cheap VHS rental back to back with Attack of the Killer Refrigerator or online through a generous host, find a time to relax and enjoy a fun time-waster that is The Hook of Woodland Heights.
