A-hunting and a-haunting we go in this no-budget rip-off of a low-budget classic.
9 September 2011 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Over the years, plenty of directors have been 'influenced' by low-budget horror classic The Evil Dead, but very few have tried to emulate that film as closely as Jerry O'Sullivan, whose uninspired 'evil spirit in the woods' flick Gut-Pile shamelessly 'borrows' every directorial trick in Sam Raimi's book, albeit with very little success.

Made by the aptly named Shoestring Films and released by Sub Rosa, this crappy effort revolves around three guys spending a hunting weekend in a remote cabin who find themselves at the mercy of a vengeful spirit. Complete with Raimi's 360 degrees rotation shot, his steadicam through the trees gimmick, and a variety of other very familiar camera angles, sound production tricks and lighting effects, this piece of highly derivative nonsense would be completely and utterly worthless if it wasn't for a half-decent 'wall-mounted decapitated head trophy' gag, some cheap and cheerful flying severed limb action, an eviscerated corpse (his guts left in a pile on the ground, hence the title) and the appearance of a silly scarecrow monster towards the end.
