The Redwood Massacre (2014) made me nervous when I started watching it, as so many horror films do in this millennia, and being on Amazon Prime; it was a total crapshoot. As the movie progressed, I knew I was in store for a bloodbath, and in a good way.
There’s so much blood, almost to the point of being comical. The killer’s origin story was slightly different from the normal, but still similar to the great slasher stalker films that I tend to enjoy more because I don’t have to think. And several times, I found myself telling the characters not to do something.
Apparently, it’s based on a “Horrifying True Story,” though I didn’t find anything of substance confirming the claim with a quick internet search. To be honest, I didn’t really care. Oh wait, wasn’t that what AHS 1984 was based on?
The Redwood Massacre is one of those stereotypical slasher/splatterpunk films, but I loved it and gave it 4 out of 5 Stars.
