Like the other commenter I am shocked a movie of this quality came out of Brain Damage inc. I truly was not expecting much after the hoaky introduction from the Brain Damage spokesman with the spiked hair and leather jacket. Was even about ready to turn off the movie when the first 5 minutes were filming lizards in the desert. But what happened afterwards - while not Oscar material, was certainly better than expected. This is probably one of the best written slasher movies I have seen in a long time (Did that sentence really come from me?). Rarely has a slasher movie plot line interested me as much as this one. Most slashers as we all know rely on special effects and gore to sell movies, this one had little of quality of either, but relied instead on a somewhat original storyline, imagine my surprise. The characters of the Equinox siblings, were excellently written if mediocrely portrayed. Subtract a few dumb ass lines from the meth dealer's script and his character was right up there. The supporting staff needed help - but they were what I have come to expect from Brain Damage.
Anyone who wants a change of pace from the traditional slasher fare movie this is a definite must-see - just fast forward whenever you see a dude with spiky hair.
