It’s late at night on Saturday, so you know what that means…it’s time for TRN Up All Night! And tonight, we’re showing a horror double feature for your binge-watching pleasure.
First, it’s Motel Hell from 1980, where Vincent Smith (Rory Calhoun) and his sister Ida (Nancy Parsons) run a rural hotel, but they earn most of their cash operating a food stand that specializes in world-famous sausages. After years of success, however, the duo’s upstanding brother, Sheriff Bruce (Paul Linke), eventually discovers the grotesque details of his siblings’ booming business: Vincent and Ida are actually plumping up their hotel patrons, killing and dismembering them and then grinding them into frankfurters.
Then, we’re watching Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare from 1988, where Satan has a farmhouse showdown with the righteous lead singer (Jon-Miki Thor) of a heavy-metal band.
