Dollar Bin Film - "Trailer Park of Terror"

Group of troubled kids traveling with their pastor on a bus trip to go camping crash their vehicle during the middle of a storm. They seek shelter at a sleazy trailer park that is run by a vengeful woman who made a pact with the devil to collect souls in order to seek revenge. As the kids sleep or get into mischief, her and her undead henchmen find various gory ways to dispose of the kids.

Well made, well acted with atmospheric photography and some strong special effects, but like the characters that populate Trailer Park of Trash, the film simply amounts to nothing more then trash. It's attractively packaged trash though. The film starts out with a strong opening sequence filled with an assortment of offbeat, redneck characters and startling scenes of violence. Afterwards, it mixes in some zombie song numbers, rather gory & torturous death sequences involving zombies making lunch meat out of the film's protagonists and some perverse elements of sexuality. It all makes for some rather good brainless fun. It isn't enlightening or meaningful, but it's entertaining even if it is all pretty sleazy and trashy. Trailer Park of Trash doesn't pretend to be anything other then what it is and that's what gives the film some of its good ole' bloody good time charm. -Brandon Sites http://bigdaddyhorrorreviews.com/

Saw this a couple years ago. It is what it is. Not a masterpiece but far from terrible.
