DITCH DAY MASSACRE
Bill Oberst Jr. , Lynn Lowery
I received the opportunity recently to view a little indie flick called Ditch Day Massacre via the fine folks at From Dusk Till Con and must say I was extremely happy I viewed this. Over the years many a directors have tried their offering at establishing their place in the slasher genre and most fail miserably.Joe Hendrick has succeeded in this fashion. Thus is not the case here. DITCH DAY MASSACRE delivers the goods and notches itself firmly on the shelf with other great slasher flicks, Let me back up a little bit and drop you a plot synopsis. This movie revolves around Jenny Bilson, your token all American sweetheart. The one mistake she is unaware of making comes back to haunt her in a very violent way, as her past returns for revenge.
I have to strongly mention the performance of Bill Oberst Jr. The man has shown me in as few as 3 or 4 films (CIRCUS OF THE DEAD, A GRIM BECOMING, DITCH DAY MASSACRE ETC...) just how versatile he is and how far to the extreme he can take his character. His morose yet vulgar outings add such a creepiness to any film that allow the director to do so many things with him and leaves so many open doors open for them to go with other obsessions.
There isn't an overpowering presence of blood and gore herein but just enough to appease the eyes and allow the story to carry on.Just an outright refreshing horror film.period.
