Old school slasher that delivers in all departments.
22 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Art runs a body shop for fixing cars. He is a religious man who, whilst transporting his family to church, is run off the road by some drunk teens. His wife is killed and his daughter survives but is left in a coma. Two years after this event, he cares for his daughter at home. He is joined by her old boyfriend, Billy- Bob , who is passing through on the way to a job that he starts in a couple of months. He asks Art for a temporary job, and he is happy to oblige. It is not long before the three teens from two years ago show up and a deadly revenge is exacted.

There is more to the story than the above summary, but I really do not want to give away too much information. This film reminded me of the 80's slasher Don't go in the house (1980), but not quite as sick and twisted as that old video nasty. This was made in 2002, but would have fitted nicely into the glory/gory heyday of late 70's/early 80's slashers. It follows all of the conventions and I, for one, loved it for it.

Directed by Donald Farmer who has an impressive history in exploitation films, still going today. Starring some familiar faces to exploitation films, William Smith (needs no introduction here). Tina Klause and Rachel Robbins. (Both of who are well established scream queens, still going strong today).

Good story, decent acting, decent gore, some neat twists and turns that I did not expect and the usual slasher implausible situation made up for an excellent package that entertained me thoroughly.

Highly recommended. AKA Body shop.
