If you’re already scoffing at the movie title alone, it’s a good indicator that this isn’t the film for you. Yes, it’s a movie about frat boys, bloody massacres, and lots of immature humor. It’s not about empowering women, it’s not about making a difference in the world, it’s about satirical misogynistic stereotyping, horror movie clichés, and over all raunchy entertainment. Dude Bro Massacre Party III is pure trashy 80’s and 90’s B-Rated Comedy brought to modern times yet leaving horror fans with awesome nostalgic tributes to past slasher flicks.
Much similar to the grind-house Machete prank trailer, it was a pleasant surprise to see Dude Bro Massacre Party III produced into an actual film. Initially in 2009 the trailer leak was intended as a joke, but by 2013 a Kickstarter was launched raising over $240,000 with 4,789 supporting the project. By July 2015, Dude Bro Massacre Party III was a finished product and available for free download for dedicated backers as well as available to purchase through iTunes.

Dude Bro Massacre Party III (the title still me giggle every time) is basically about a guy named Brent who is trying to investigate the mysterious death of his twin brother Brock. As the title hints, Brock was murdered during an epic frat party in which leads Brent to seek out and join that same fraternity. Of course one thing leads to another and the frat is sent to the same cabin in which Brock was slaughtered as well as the return of the malicious killer “Motherface”.
One of the things I adore most in the film is the over the top cliché names used throughout the film. Apart from Brock and Brent, some of the other all American frat boy names include Turbeaux (which is pronounced “Turbo”), Derek, Todd, and Spike along with the “annoying obsessive college girlfriend” Samantha. There are also some surprise cameos that pop up including Patton Oswalt as the Chief, Andrew W.K as frat brother Rip Stick, and Larry King as Coach Handsey.
Although B-Rated films typically take an acquired taste to appreciate, the creators take specialty in viral sketch comedy in their well-known 5 Second Films branding that has been trending over various outlets of social media since 2008. With that being said, it’s as if they took Adult Swim type of humor and ingeniously combined it with other parodies such as Scream Queens, Kung Fury, Scary Movie, and Sleepaway Camp II. It’s cheesy, it has gore-filled kills followed by one liners, really idiotic characters, low budget shot quality and just over the top mind numbing entertainment.
Dude Bro Massacre Party III isn’t going to win an Oscar by any means, and will be rejected by most viewers due to its ridiculous nature, but if you’re looking for a fun filled horror comedy to watch with your buds on a Friday night, I’d highly recommend checking out this flick!
Unfortunately since its one of those cult classic independent type of films, it is not available on streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime or Vudu but can be purchased or rented directly from DudeBroPartyMassacre.com as well as iTunes.
