Professor Ackerman: Unprecedented, historical categories. More Americans died in the so-called Civil War than in the two World Wars combined. 618,000. Although popular media usually portrays the Civil War as a series of epic battles for honor and glory the reality is far from either. General Sherman's march through South Carolina alone cost over 8,000 innocent Southerners their lives.

Not Just Insulting to Southerners
1 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have read that some people find this movie insulting to the South. This movie is insulting to anyone unfortunate enough to have stumbled across it on cable TV. I mean, some people might consider it "camp," but it is more crap. Let me set it up for you, there are a bunch of sex-starved college kids that stumble on to this town in the deep South. This town has a bunch of old-school Southern types that dress in elaborate clothes and talk with outrageous accents. Well, these Southerners secretly want to kill each one of these college kids in the most violent possible ways. They ram spears up rectums, they draw and quarter, and these are some of the more tame methods of execution. Mind you, none of this is scary, the whole plot is driven by how gruesome they can murder these college kids. There are Confederate flags everywhere and we are supposed to believe that this is the type of behavior you can expect from people that live in the South. I just grow tired of idiots that rationalize this crap and pretend that it is just mindless entertainment that is not supposed to be taken seriously. This crap was derived from a warped mind and is intended for other people who have warped minds. If you are in a house and see that the person that lives there actually has a copy of this, well, I would be looking for an exit.
