Motel Hell (1980)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

Motel Hell (1980) Farmer Vincent kidnaps unsuspecting travellers and is burying them in his garden. Unfortunately for his victims, they are not dead. He feeds his victims to prepare them for his roadside stand. His motto is: It takes all kinds of critters...to make Farmer Vincents fritters. The movie is gory, but is also a parody of slasher movies like Last House on the Left.

Movie Trivia:
  • When Sheriff Smith asks Terri to the movies he says it is Monster _That Challenged the World, The (1957)_. Not only is this a real movie, but the scenes shown were actually from it.
  • Tobe Hooper was originally going to direct this movie for Universal Studios, but when the studio balked at the bizarre project, Hooper also departed.
  • The chainsaws images were inspired by The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974).
  • Actor 'Paul Linke' lost 25 pounds to play the lead. He was carrying the extra weight to play Grossman on "CHiPs" (1977).
  • The screenplay for this film was written years before it went into production. The film had a difficult time finding backing. In 1978 it was picked up by the Camp Hill Company and was shot and completed in 1980. In all, it was nearly three years from the time the script was written to the final release of the film.
