    People come from far and wide to sample Farmer Vincent's distinctively flavored dried, smoked sausages, but one might well ask why there are so few people staying at the nearby kitschy Motel Hello.  Also, have you ever wondered about the secret ingredients that make his meats taste so darn good?  The ‘80s cult classic horror-comedy film MOTEL HELL, directed by Kevin Connor (At The Earth's CoreThe House Where Evil Dwells) takes on a frighteningly funny look into the different kinds of critters that make up Farmer Vincent's fritters with plenty of surprises.

    A film by Kevin Connor, this crazy chiller stars Rory Calhoun (Angel), Paul Linke (CHiPS), Nancy Parsons (Porky's), Nina Axelrod (Cobra), and legendary DJ Wolfman Jack. While many of its contemporaries were literally trying to scare the wits out of people, MOTEL HELL balanced horror with humor, making audiences cringe and laugh at its lurid tale.  A modest success upon its theatrical release, video rentals and cable showings have kept it alive and solidified its slasher status. Its creepy chainsaw battle still excites today.

     

    Farmer Vincent Smith (Rory Calhoun) and his sister Ida (Nancy Parsons) run the respectable Motel Hello where they also produce and sell popular meat products. But the wonderful flavor that makes up Vincent's locally legendary smoked meats has a special ingredient.  Their secret garden is filled with "animals" that they ambush, capture, and raise buried in the earth.  But when the seemingly kindly couple, who gleefully dispatch their victims with aplomb, take in and care for a young woman (Nina Axelrod) who survived a motorcycle accident, she creates a rivalry between Vincent and his unsuspecting, slow-witted sheriff brother (Paul Linke) for her affection. Will the sibling squabble unravel Vincent and Ida's undercover enterprise?
