This Movie’s Production Company is ‘Kangas Kahn Films’ … Like the Pokémon…
This is going to be an interesting one. You see, Shannon had originally made a request of me for my October Horror-thon for a movie called Deathgasm, which was a fine comedy horror movie that I just couldn’t find enough to make fun of…I mean “review.” When I told her that, she then suggested I review today’s movie. A movie so bad and obscure that I can’t find anything about it on Wikipedia or Rotten Tomatoes, so the only information I have is from IMDb…which is fine because I don’t intend to give you much information because (SPOILER ALERT) I don’t think anyone should ever watch this movie. This movie is Terrortory (sigh…I know, right?), “written” and “directed” by Dan Doran, Kevin Kangas, and Mark Wenger, and “starring” who the hell cares?
A dude wants a blow job. In order to obtain said blow job, he tells 5 “scary” stories that all were said to take place in some stretch of land called “the Terrortory” to some chick. …Clever, ain’t it? The first story is about a naked chick that wants beef jerky, but will settle for your face in a pinch. The second story is just a random murderer on a film set. The third is two people trying to catch a serial killer with a pumpkin for a head, and if that doesn’t work the dude has an engagement ring to give the girl. The forth story is killer drones. The fifth one is the Blair Witch if the Blair Witch was Pennywise. Then storyteller guy and the girl get killed, but it was all a dream and they go to the beach instead and probably gets that blow job. The end. AND I AM NOT JOKING ABOUT ANY OF THAT!!!
Well this was a whole heap of garbage, but y’know what? I can act angry about it all I want but we all know I love a movie that I could mock this easily. So let’s get started, eh! First off, I would like to recommend to this movie that they never reference other movies. You talk about Alien, which is only going to remind us what a good movie looks like and then we remember we’re watching this. And then you have your characters call Twilight a shitty movie. Granted, I agree with that. But the problem is that this movie makes me utter a phrase I never expected to utter: This movie is worse than Twilight. I threw up 3 times while writing that sentence. But also, these people say this house must be super prepared for a power outage because they have a bunch of glow sticks in their house. That’s not really being prepared for a power outage; it’s being prepared for a rave, maybe. Of course, this is coming from a guy that literally used a lightsaber as a light the last time his power went out, so maybe I can’t judge. …But here I go anyways. After that, he tells his first story and afterwards says, “I’ll tell you another. And this is a good one.” So, you realized that the first story was garbage and you’re telling your audience that? Also, the second story was also garbage. I mean, the first one was terrible, especially since they expect you to believe that a good ole boy comes across a mostly naked, 6/10 woman in the woods that keeps asking if he brought her meat and he never once grabs his crotch and says, “I got your meat right here!” The second story doesn’t even really have a story. It’s just some people filming some movie in the woods and then there’s a killer and they all die. That’s it. Story 3 at least had an interesting idea in that the pumpkin head guy had no head in his trick or treat pumpkin bucket head, but started tossing his victim’s brain in there. That could’ve been something if they had bothered. They didn’t though. But they did decide to add a subplot about how the guy brought an engagement ring with him for him and his girlfriend’s trip to the woods to hunt a serial killer, which is definitely the way to get that “yes,” fellas. Nothin’ gets the ladies in the mood for marriage like impending doom. Story 4 goes back to the lack of story and random killing, but this time it’s modernized because the filmmakers rented a few drones for the day. Problematically, drones are too hard to pilot for a) someone to fly one and fire a dart accurately, b) have one person flying several simultaneously, c) make one cut someone’s throat with them while somehow still keeping them aloft, and d) fuck you, movie. But it turns out they were all being controlled by artificial intelligence or something, so it’s okay. Story 5 was the closest they got to an interesting story, but by that I mean they ripped off two better stories (Blair Witch and Stephen King’s It) and mashed them together into their garbage. Basically, this whole movie was 3 guys that had about 1/10th of an idea for a horror movie, so they all just smashed them together to make about 1/27th of a decent movie. I am good at math.
Now, since this is a really low budget movie, you have to forgive their special effects. …I mean YOU do. I do not and will not. It all sucked. They basically had access to corn syrup, but not to actual special effects, so they would show the wind up and the aftermath, but they could not actually show a stabbing. They can just have a guy have a vision, start screaming, and then be suddenly back in the woods with a lady pulling very unconvincing strips off of his face and eating them. Or they can show a guy swing a pickaxe and then show a lady with a pickaxe coming out of her mouth and the very tip of the pickaxe going into the mouth of the person she was kissing, which I would like to add is not nearly enough of the pickaxe to kill the guy underneath. Maybe he’d have a tongue piercing now at best, but I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume he just drowned very quickly on the blood of the girl above him who would actually have died from the pickaxe. The fourth story also made me very sad for another reason than just it being the 5th garbage storyline I was watching. It was also because that story made me realize this movie was made recently enough to have drones in it. I was thinking 1970 and then it could’ve gotten a pass, but no, not so much. I also tend to focus a lot on boobs in my horror movies, because if you’re gonna make me sit through an awful movie, at least give me something I can enjoy. They don’t really deliver there either. That one siren lady in the first story is pretty much naked all the time (which leads me to believe that this was the only person in the movie who wasn’t a buddy of the writer/directors and instead was hired from the local strip club), and the rest of the movie was just people that teased with their boobs, being in bras and shaking them at the camera a lot, but only one other person goes through with it. I do applaud the director of the third story (pumpkin head guy story) because the camera angle he chose while showing the girl putting on the wedding ring made sure he kept one of the girls boobs in the top right corner, just so the audience would know it was still there.
Obviously, you can’t really expect much by way of acting in this movie either. Maybe I’m wrong, but it certainly seemed like every person in this movie was just the writer/director’s buddies that they paid in pizza and a six-pack of Dos Equis. So let’s just go through them, shall we? First off, the main character of the first story’s name is Marshall Trigger. Take a moment to let that sink in. Secondly, he is roughly as smart as you would expect someone to be with the name Marshall Trigger. His big plan to bag a deer is to just wander around the woods with a gun. Doesn’t take up a perch in a tree, doesn’t cover himself in deer urine or use deer calls or whatever you do, just shows up and wanders around. Doesn’t even wear an orange vest. But instead of getting shot by a yokel, he gets his face eaten by a naked chick. And he kind of deserves it, because he meets her, she keeps asking him for meat, he doesn’t have any beef jerky on him (which I would recommend; it’s a great travel snack and also keeps you from getting your face eaten), then he has two visions in the vicinity of this creepy chick and decides it’s her fault and shoots her in the face. Some might call that a bit hasty with the conclusions there. Second story is about actors in the woods, but strangely employs no actual actors in the scenes. There are people there, to be sure, but I wouldn’t call what they were doing acting. There was also a fat lumberjack looking dude who thinks he needs to completely drop his pants to masturbate to two of the actors making out in a tent, but also thinks it’s fine to just stand out in the open to do it and also is fine masturbating to the idea of them making out because he’s far away and they’re in a tent so he can’t see anything at all. The third story made very little sense at all. Guy takes his girlfriend to find a serial killer/ask her to marry him, but then they also feel the need to record themselves beforehand acting like they’re just going camping, as if the killer were going to see the video and be fooled into thinking they weren’t there for him. The guy also seems to miss twice when firing a gun at someone just an inch or two away from point blank range. It was a good thing they were out there looking for Smilin’ Jack and not Broad Side of a Barn Steven. Surprisingly enough, these people also can’t act. The guy’s death rattle was more akin to drinking water and having it go down the wrong pipe than being disemboweled. In story 4, they employed no good actors. I know I could just say that about the whole movie in general, but I feel like they were bad enough that it needed to be pointed out each time. But in this story, I was hopeful that the guy the campers met in the beginning would be the bad guy, because him going on about poisonous bugs and snakes and stuff and his general vibe made him the creepiest thing in the movie. Instead, he was just a kindly hiker who was most likely a pedophile in his free time. Also, the black guy in this straight up does parkour to escape the drone, proving that this movie was made when a bunch of frat boys were sitting around getting stoned and reciting things that they think are “rad.” Drones, parkour, ear gauges, boobies, and murder. “Bro! You should write that down and make a movie! …Dude, there are two O’s in ‘boobs’…” And finally, there were no actors in the 5th story either. Also, every character was extremely unlikeable. Dumb chick (but at least she’ll get her boobs out), like two other girls that make no impression at all, annoying AV twerp, Native American looking dude that talks to the camera all the time, ass-hat director guy. Should I really be cheering for the murderous clown instead of the victims?
So that’s Terrortory. A God-awful collection of God-awful half-baked ideas that someone decided should just be filmed straight off of the idea stage without bothering with all that “writing” nonsense those nerds are always doing. They also couldn’t afford anything resembling effects or anyone resembling actors. There are some boobs, but there are better ways to see better boobs and I recommend you try those first. I cannot say this is the worst movie I’ve ever slogged through because I’ve seen and reviewed some real garbage, but this movie could certainly be a competitor. Basically, I’m saying don’t watch it. Unless you’re into that sort of thing. Terrortory gets “Someone actually gave this movie 10/10 on IMDb!” out of “I hate that person!!”
