Killer Yacht Party (2006) Screams onto DVD - Page 2
It all starts with two surprisingly mismatched friends, sexy-bimbo-girl and serious-uncomfortable-girl (we’ve never seen this combo before), who pay their way into a trendy club and get a special invitation to a yacht party. The party is given by two club promoters, Brock and Monica, and the party boat is…well…it’s seen better days, but it will do for impromptu sex before the big bash, or will it?
Lots of attractive, young, vapid, superficial party-goers show up for the big do, as well as a few dodgy characters who arouse suspicion, although we expect some of them will be victims. There’s lots of drinking, dancing, and breasts (oh…did I mention them already?), and just as things are getting hot we hear the dreaded “h” word—haunted. Killer Yacht Party ambles along at a leisurely pace, with an unusual amount of time between killings (for a Troma release). The best part about the party, though, is how quiet it is—where are all those people that were lined up to get in? Usually filmmakers include some raucous ambient noise in party scenes, but Killer Yacht Party is clearly a film with a difference—no sound budget (which is emphasized by the poor sound recording that keeps viewers reaching for the remote’s “volume up” switch).
Disappointingly, Killer Yacht Party is not a good film in the classic Troma sense—so ridiculously bad that it‘s hilariously funny. It’s just dull and slow-moving. We expect that Troma films will have a certain amount of gore, but Killer Yacht Party comes across with too little too late. You don’t even get to keep the party favors.
