Film Review – Murder Party
In Murder Party, a random guy is walking down the street on Halloween night and steps on an invitation to a Murder Party. He has just rented some videos to watch that evening, and since he has nothing else to do, decides to go to the party. He dresses up as a cardboard knight and heads out. He shows up at this warehouse where these costumed people are waiting to kidnap him, torture him, and kill him.
One of the costumed girls falls over and impales her head accidentally. Should we be laughing? Yes, I thought it was hilarious. Turns out the costumed people are all artists who are vying for some artistic grant money by coming up with the best idea for killing the random guy who showed up. Alexander, the grant money guy shows up and talks to them about challenging themselves to reach for the stars when coming up with ideas for killing this guy. They all sit around and inject themselves with truth serum and just spill their secrets – kind of hilarious also. Then things start to go terribly wrong. People start killing each other in brutal ways. The murder party expands into another art party nearby where more people get killed. The knight eventually escapes and makes his way home. Even though there was a definite climax, it was kind of anti-climactic.
Not a fantastic movie and I think the script writing could have been more funny during most of it, but it was still fairly amusing. I did laugh at a couple of inappropriate times, however. That’s got to mean something, right?
