Evelyn (Anna Chappell) runs the Mountaintop Motel, a cluster of ramshackle cabins nestled deep in the Texas countryside. But Evelyn isn’t ‘all there;’ instead tormented by ghastly voices and visions which cause her to periodically lose her grip on reality, until one fateful day, lost in a bout of insanity, she unwittingly murders her young daughter.
Although the police rule it an accident, Evelyn’s guilt soon overtakes her, plunging her deeper and deeper into a world of violent paranoia. When a group of travelers arrive to spend the night at the motel, Evelyn completely detaches from reality and, viewing her new guests as a threat, begins to terrorize and dispatch them one by one, with the help of her trusty sickle…
An atmospheric regional slasher from director Jim McCullough Sr. (The Creature From Black Lake), MOUNTAINTOP MOTEL MASSACRE blends suspenseful psychological drama with gory killings. Filled with gorgeously gelled cinematography from Joseph Wilcots (Roots), Vinegar Syndrome brings this unsettling horror classic to Blu-ray in an brand new 2k restoration.
