Lately, there has been a shortage of really great B horror movies on the market. Most of the direct to DVD horror has been boring or poorly made. Therefore, I wasn't expecting a lot when I got Wedding Slashers. However, I was pleasantly surpised by one of the BEST B horror movies of all time. Then again, it's not that fair to say best B horror movies, since this is also better than most of what's been in the theater, too.
The movie starts off with a bloody double killing in the first six minutes, and the gory thrill ride never lets up from there. All 80 minutes of this movie are packed with brutal murder, fun plot twists, and snappy dialogue. The characters are `real' fleshed out enough that by the end of the film you feel connected to them in a way. The writing and directing are brilliant. I can't say enough nice things about how well this was made on a small budget.
The plot, without giving too much away, surrounds the pain and loss one girl, Jenna, has in her life. Death surrounds her, so it's no surprise when her wedding turns into a murderfest. The reason why is the twist, and I don't want to be the one to spoil that for you, the viewer.
Look, you can see my other reviews and tell, I'm pretty honest. If a movie sucks, I'll say so. But Wedding Slashers is the surprise smash hit of the year and a must have for anyone who likes horror, especially horror with humor and bite.
