American Gothic (1988)

American Gothic (1988)

Directed by: John Hough

Starring: Sarah Torgov, Terence Kelly, Mark Ericksen

I don’t know if there’s anything more inevitable than a famous painting named American Gothic being turned into a horror movie of the same name where some farmers kill dumb teenagers. It’s like I’ve always known this movie existed, I just never saw it. Welp, now I’ve seen it, and ho boy how my life has been enriched…

A group of teens take a camping trip to an island with a single house on it. The house, of course, is home to a family of country bumpkins/serial killers, and they knock off the kids one by one.

This movie is painfully 80’s, which is actually kinda nice, because otherwise it’s just the exact same thing as every other “rural family kills kids” horror movie out there. Which is, per capita, about 40% of them, as far as I can tell.
