It’s new release time. MEMORIAL VALLEY MASSACRE: PREHISTORIC EDITION – now on DVD and Instant Video via Amazon.com.
Despite some horrific warning signs, a greedy land developer opens a campground to the public… and sets the stage for a bloodbath. Whatever it is that stalks the camp kills with the strength of some powerful beast, and with the cunning and vengeful hatred of a human. The most experienced campers don’t know the law of the land and their ignorance is no excuse – because the killer will not forgive, forget, or bury the hatchet – except in someone’s chest!
The 1989 Robert C. Hughes flick is a favorite of mine, if only for its late 80s generic, laidback charm punctuated by supreme cheesiness – an inexplicably random caveman maniac!? Really. You can’t make this stuff up. Actually someone did make this stuff up and filmed it.
There are plenty of old, washed out video prints of this on the market, but my release comes from a digital source, more accurately an ancient laserdisc. If this superior edition results in someone else locating an even better source – i.e. film print – then great. The market wins.
