The title says it all. Evelyn (Anna Chappell), a recently released middle-aged mental patient, returns home to run her mountaintop motel, where her daughter, Lorie (Jill King), who is a little strange herself, worships the Devil in the basement. When Evelyn catches Lorie praying at a

Satanic shrine, she has a relapse and severs her daughter's head with a sickle. Her mind completely snapped, Evelyn then murders some of her motel guests. In what must be the biggest night of the year for the out-of-the-way motel, no fewer than seven customers show up looking for lodging during a

nasty rainstorm. Entering their rooms through a series of underground tunnels, Evelyn lets loose poisonous snakes, large rats, and nasty biting cockroaches, later, becoming more direct and simply stabbing her guests. Instead of a homicidal Jason running through the woods of a summer camp,

MOUNTAINTOP MOTEL MASSACRE offers an overweight, middle-aged crazy with a sickle. Still, all the characters here suffer from terminal stupidity and deserve what they get from Evelyn. Except for insanity, however, no motivation is given for her murderous spree. The filmmakers do have some sense of

visual style, but a slasher film is a slasher film no matter how good it looks. Moreover, the gore effects here are straight from the Herschell Gordon Lewis school of "cheapo," glimpsed only briefly to conceal how bad they are. Self-conscious references to PSYCHO are scattered throughout the film,

but they only serve to remind viewers of just how pathetic MOUNTAINTOP MOTEL MASSACRE really is.
