"Tower of Blood" review

Tower of Blood (2005)

Directed by Corbin Timbrook
Writing credits Jeremiah Campbell

Barbara Scolaro.... Nurse Dallas
Chris Todd.... Kirk Seaver
Kerry Lynne Feirman.... Randi

A bunch of teens head to an abandoned tower. They're there to drink, have sex and all around party. What else would teens do in a slasher flick? Speaking of slashers, a large maniac with a leather mask and a big machete follows them there. Soon the tower will become a Tower of Blood. Stupid teens. Always finding ways to upset psychopaths by being alive and having fun.

"Tower of Blood" plays out exactly as you would imagine. If you've ever seen a slasher movie before, you've already seen this movie. There are three couples and one geek hanging out on the roof of the Tower of Blood. If someone leaves the roof for any reason, kiss them goodbye. The gore effects are at Monty Python level. Large hoses of blood spray the room if someone gets cut. There are also two scenes of naked breasts. Blood. Breasts. It's all here.

If you're looking for something different and exciting, don't bother with "Tower of Blood". This is a bare minimum exercise in straight to video slasher filmmaking. However, if you're a desperate slasher movie fan who will watch anything that has a large psycho with a machete, (like me), it may be worth a look.

SCORE: 2 out of 4 machete wielding maniacs
