I have always loved Motel Hell, and I have watched it about 8 times. The story is pretty good: a very redneck family sells jerky to travelers that come through their small redneck town. What those travelers don’t realize is that the yummy treats that they are eating have their origin in human flesh! The way they “harvest” their meat is very cool too – they cause motorists to have accidents on the road, and then capture their prey and bury them in their garden with only their heads sticking out of the ground.
Motel Hell is full of schmaltz and doesn’t take itself too seriously, which I like. Recommended.
