Slaughter on the golf course. Horror, Comedy and Golf.
Slaughter on the golf course. I guess it was inevitable that sooner or later someone would make a horror movie for golfers. The film centers on a series of grisly murders that takes place at the Tall Grass Country Club. There out on the course, maybe lurking just off in the woods, Blades lies in wait to rip you to shreds. "Blades" combines golfing as a setting for a horror/comedy that is a parody of the hit movie "Jaws". Replace the ocean with the greens and a killer shark with a killer lawn mower. This movie has similar characters and situations. The sooner you realize this, the sooner you can get some appreciation of movie. This is more of a comedy, a parody, and it is based on "Jaws". The lines are corny as are the situations but the actors do this all with a straight face. It's not your normal horror movie although there is a lot of gore. If you like golf, have watched the movie "jaws", want a bit of horror and a little bit of a laugh, this movie may be for you. To some it will be funny and others it will just be stupid. I saw "Blades" on a DVD I rented called Troma Triple B-Header. It contains three movies, "Blood Hook", "Blades" and "Zombie Island Massacre". As part of this 3 movie DVD, yes, it was worth the price of a rental and my time.
