Default Houseboat Horror (1989)

Anyone seen this low budget slasher flick produced in 1989?

Following in the foot steps of Friday the 13th and other similar films, it concerns a group of youngsters who go to a deserted lake, this time on the pretext of making a rock video.

One by one they are picked off by the killer in a variety of grisly ways.

Renowned now as one of the worst flicks ever made in Australia; it went straight to video release when it came out in '89.

For fans of Australian soaps, it features appearances by Lou Siversen (Lou Kelly in Prisoner) and Alan Dale (Jim Robinson in Neighbours).

It was directed by Kendal Flanagan who had also worked as a director on both of the aforementioned shows.

It is a little on the amteurish side if I'm being honest with you in terms of how it was shot. It even looks as though it's been shot on a home camera at times.

Go to youtube and check it out if you've not seen it.

It's one I've been meaning to source for such a long time (even though I've heard it's pretty bad), but never got around to. There's a few Aussie Slashers I've been meaning to hunt down for a while, the primary one being Next Of Kin, which I've heard is brilliant.
