Movie House Massacre

Another straight-to-videocassette low-budget horror film, MOVIE HOUSE MASSACRE has a relatively unique premise; at its center is a haunted theater. In the old days, when the theater presented stage plays, its manager went crazy, stabbed a box-office worker, and started a fire that created a mass panic. Now, the owner of a chain of theaters has bought the "haunted" house. Eager to collect the $25,000 reward offered by persons unknown who dare anyone to do business in the old theater, the chain owner dispatches three employees to clean up the dreaded cinema in time for its gala opening. Of course, the bodies soon pile up (one of the workers is a high-school cheerleader, so an endless parade of her bouncy teammates drop by long enough to get killed), and the usual stupid twist-ending makes the whole affair all the more pointless. Produced, written, and directed by Alice Raley, who apparently knows nothing about making films, MOVIE HOUSE MASSACRE is incredibly inept. Only the presence of veteran low-budget star Mary Woronov, as the manager's assistant, makes this film even remotely tolerable. Los Angelenos may notice that the film was shot in the Beverly Theater in Beverly Hills and the Fairfax Theater in LA.
