After a camping accident leaves him disfigured and tormented by classmates, Leslie Rejick only has one thing on his mind: It’s Time to Even The Score! With a hardware store chock-full of deadly tools at his disposal, he leaves behind a merciless path of death and destruction in a small Canadian town.

A pair of inept city detectives determined to track down the killer, enlist the help of eccentric local coroner Patrick. But, Patrick holds a secret of his own, and he ultimately leads the detectives head-on into a bizarre, bloody battle with the psychotic killer…


“This cheap and juvenile attempt at psychological horror suffers from abominable acting, poor special effects, criminal over length, the drab work of the aptly-named video-grapher, Geoff Bland, and the kind of lazy, misanthropic world view, masquerading as a cry for tolerance, that can only be formed after years of living in the comfort of your parents’ basement.” Caelum Vatnsdal, They Came from Within

Massacre Up North is not a good film. It’s quite awful, but it is spectacularly good at being awful and is a fun film to watch with friends if you want something to rip on while pounding drinks. There’s a high amount of impressive gore and Stoichevesk is kind enough to toss in quite a few nude scenes, so it ain’t all bad.” Ain’t It Cool News
