Blood Hook (1987)

Originally known as Muskie Madness, Troma insisted the title change to Blood Hook before they’d distribute it.

Probably the most interesting thing about the movie is that its director Jim Mallon and lyricist/key group Kevin Murphy worked on Mystery Science Theater 3000. Murphy is, of course, Tom Servo.

Years ago, Peter’s grandfather went missing under mysterious circumstances. Now, he’s brought his friends back to the lake house for the Muskie Madness competition. Soon, people are getting killed and Peter is facing off with a killer that has a gigantic fishing hook.

You can get this from — who else — Vinegar Syndrome, who have really cornered the market on upscale releases of movies that I was once laughed at for renting in 1987. This version was never released and has all of the uncut gore that you were probably hankering for.

Blood Hook is also available on Amazon Prime and Tubi.
