Storyline

While traveling on vacation to Florida, the college friends Anderson Lee, Cory Jones and Nelson Elliot meet the gorgeous Joey and Kat in a gas station traveling with their gay friend Ricky to the same location. Anderson gives his phone number to Joey in Florida. The teenagers decide to take a shortcut and they find a detour through an old road leading to the Southern town of Pleasant Valley. They are welcomed by the local Mayor Buckman as guests of honor together with Joey, Kat, Ricky and the Afro-American biker Malcolm and his Chinese girlfriend Leah and invited to stay for their Guts and Glory Jubilee with free lodging, meals and booze at Granny Boone's hotel, and dancing, games and a mouth-watering barbecue in the climax of the jubilee. The group accepts the invitation but sooner they find who will supply the meat for the feast. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Kane Hodder:  A man named Jason who seizes Anderson right before the big fight between Anderson and Mayor Buckman. This might be a reference to the 'Friday the 13th' franchise, as (Kane Hodder) played Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988), Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989), Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993), and Jason X (2001).

Quotes

[first lines]
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.
