Storyline

College student Regina comes back to her room from class one day to discover she's won a getaway vacation at the quiet Red Wolf Inn. Before she can even call her parents to let them know where she'll be, the lodge owners arrange her transport and she soon finds herself with two other young women as guests of a kindly old couple. The place is beautiful and the food is fantastic, but something just doesn't seem right. One of the guests has suddenly vanished, and the hosts are certainly reluctant to have anyone poking around the meat locker. Still, the barbecued ribs are delicious, so what's there to complain about? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Are You Ready As Dinner, Dear?....
6 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

I've never seen any horror movies of the 70's, so this came as a real surprise for me.

There are some really mind-numbing, creepy scenes especially the scene where the family including the three guests sit together and enjoy a sumptuous feast. It almost gave me goose bumps, especially how every minor sound of their act of enjoying the dinner is captured.... Also, the location fits perfectly with the story - the huge house with lot of rooms, the scenic yet isolated beach nearby, no neighbours...

And of course, great performances by everyone. Linda Gillen as the lead character Regina is spot on with her character as a pretty, innocent & vulnerable young woman who trusts everybody easily. Mary Jackson as the old lady of the house, Evelyn Smith portrays evil with so much caring! Everybody else is equally impressive.

There are some things left unexplained as to how these girls are lured from the cities & also a few scenes like Regina's futile attempt to escape looked tailored to suit the script rather than be realistic.

Verdict: Still, a cannibalistic horror that almost left my hairs on end.
