Storyline

Somewhere in Wichita, Kansas, David is a potential college football star who's just won a four year scholarship to a (no doubt, nice posh) college somewhere in Oaklahoma. His mates decide to throw him a serious farewell party whilst his folks are out that night. Unfortunatley three uninvited guests secretly gatecrash these nightly celebrations, two are convicts who've fled from lockup, now hiding out somewhere in the homes cellar, while our third interloper is a mental patient escapee, with a connection to the party guests and notably David himself. Before long homicidal rage resurfaces in one of these trio leading to a carnage filled rampage. Written by suspicous

Analysis of a flop horror
2 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Things in this film you can expect to see: BAD acting, BAD music, BAD hair, BAD gore, BAD dialogue, BAD camera-work... Oh and did I mention, the front cover was BAD?

Things in this film you won't see: Anything vaguely of any interest. Unless you like watching car crashes.

Best part: A totally random moment... A loving couple are doing it in a sauna, and a random girl who we never see again is massaging her breasts in the shower. Since all of the main actresses refused to shed their togs, the director decided to hire an adult film actress to satisfy his nudity quotient. Obviously the chore of writing her into the movie was too much for him.

Worst Part: The gang are in a nightclub before the nights debauchery, we get a cutaway to a bunch of spangily clad dancers jiving to perhaps the MOST HORRIBLE SONG EVER. The spectacle goes on for a painful three minutes, and amazingly no-one walks out of the pub or complains to the manager. Are the clientèle deaf?

Most unwanted bonus: Over the end credits we get every death in the film repeated. If you were stupid enough to stick around that long, you deserve to be tortured by all the crap a second time. AND some outtakes, which are better acted than the rest of the film.

Final Verdict: I bought it for 50p from a rubbish dump sale. I should have left it there. It was the perfect place for it. 0/10
