Mardi Gras Massacre (1978)
Crypt of Dark Secrets

Nomination Year: 1998
SYNOPSIS:  A latter-day Aztec priest hunts down "evil" women to sacrifice. His definition of evil is pretty lax, and self-identification is perfectly acceptable. These murders catch the attention of one of New Orleans' finest, who tracks the priest to the ends of the film.

The budget was so non-existent for this film that even the opening title has the camera crew reflected in the blackboard they use.

The cops try (half-assed) to break down the door. They give up and one yells, "Get those firemen up here!"
