I’ve often said that the easiest way to come up with a concept for a B-Movie is to add the word “Massacre” to the end of literally any noun. After watching the the 2016 horror/comedy “Leaf Blower Massacre 2” by T-Nasty Productions, I can now state with absolute certainty that my long held hypothesis was in fact correct.
While I haven’t seen the original “Leaf Blower Massacre”, I had no difficulties following the plot of this sequel and found watching it to be an entertaining and surprisingly brutal experience none the less.
The story follows a detective duo of questionable competence investigating a series of leaf blower related murders. The murders are somehow connected to professor Shaver Jennings and the recent disappearance of his fiancé.
The film teaches the potential dangers a leaf blower can pose in the wrong hands. The killer seemingly has a penchant for creative murders such as blasting victims to death, impaling victims and even converting a leaf blower into a makeshift machine gun, the killer successful turns murder by leaf blower into an art.
Each murder is accompanied by a chorus of heavy metal music which helped accentuate the brutality of these scenes, while turning each murder into a nonsensical music video one can’t help enjoying.
At the climax of the film, Shavar has a final showdown with the murderer, where past mistakes come to light and all dangerous lawn equipment are retired back to the tool shed where they belong.
“Leaf Blower Massacre 2” manages to balance gratuitous violence with absurd humor in a way that never felt forced. The story managed to tie together appropriately, leaving no loose ends or questions unexplained.
If you have an affinity for practical blood effects, murder mysteries, and every day house hold items being converted into deadly weapons, then “Leaf Blower Massacre 2” is definitely worth consideration.
