Motel Hell (1980, dir. Kevin Connor)

After a car crash, a young woman finds herself living at a motel/farm with a deadly secret. Competent black-comedy-horror riffing on Psycho and Texas Chainsaw Massacre (both inspired by serial killer Ed Gein). Starts slow, but gains momentum, and Rory Calhoun is great as a twinkly-eyed patriarch.
