Motel Hell is a gem – it hilariously spoofs the ’70s “Hillbilly Horror” craze (Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Deliverance, etc.) while playing by its rules, and the result is a movie that is weird, scary, shocking, and extremely funny. Hell also deserves special credit for celebrating the genuinely offbeat – for example, the sequence where a swinger couple checks in and the leotard-clad woman trashes the room with a bullwhip is utter gonzo genius. Motel Hell wasn't afraid to let its freak flag fly, and that’s why it’s awesome.
