Critic Reviews for Saturday Morning Massacre (Saturday Morning Mystery)
This indie feature lifts a beloved cartoon template, but can't hit the bar it sets.
Parson clearly has affection for the ridiculous artifice of the "Scooby-Doo" TV show, but none of that translates into this meandering, uninspired riff on haunted silliness.
Audience Reviews for Saturday Morning Massacre (Saturday Morning Mystery)
The set-up in loaded with Scooby-Doo trappings, but once we're fully immersed it gets more into the neighborhood of something like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and I was still pretty much onboard for all the shenanigans.
Give it a look.
This is a good example of a cover being better than what's inside. "Scooby-Doo Meets The Evil Dead"? More like High School Drama Class Meets Wrong Turn. That's not necessarily a bad thing though. Hell, a lot of bad horror films could benefit from a little Wrong Turn. A lot of the acting left a bit to be desired, but there were parts that were creepy as hell and even a couple potential bowel release moments. Minus a half star for lying to me on the cover.
"Can you confirm this dog is eating a human hand?"
Unfunny, unimaginative, and altogther unworthy. Saturday Morning Mystery takes a groovy, five star premise (literally the best idea I never had) and reduces it to nothing more than Scooby shit. The filmmakers obviously never had a single childhood between them, and have never seen a saturday morning cartoon in their entire collective lives, and as a result, never fully realized what they had. After seeing this debacle I honestly wanted to punch a wall. I was beyond upset that a bunch of no talents, who were most likely producers' kids, took this idea filled with potential and made the most half-assed execution ever caught on celluloid. It's a shame that the person responsible for the cover art didn't make the film as it is the only aspect of this "production" that looks professionally done.
