Storyline

While returning to Los Angeles in a trailer through the desert, the driver Neil convinces his friends Tara, Harmony, Loopz, Michelle, Lee and Cashie to take a detour to an isolated mine where it could have a plantation of peyote. The owner of a gas station advises the group to not go to the place, but the stubborn Neil does not pay attention to his words. While driving in a secondary road, Neil sees a girl and wrecks the car in a rock. He decides to walk back to the gas station to call a tow truck, while Michelle and Lee climb a hill trying to get signal to their cell phones. Sooner the teenagers find that they are under siege of a group of sadistic deformed cannibals and they have to fight to survive. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Fun gore fest with lots of beautiful women running around scantily clad.
6 August 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

First of all let me state for the record that I participated in this film, albeit in a small way, so my comments may seem and probably are somewhat prejudiced. I like the film. It's a fun gore fest with lots of beautiful women running around scantily clad. Giddyap! Seven ravers have all been invited to Freak Central for dinner-not where they eat, but where they are eaten. Who gets out of the invite and who doesn't makes up the bulk of the film. Thats not to say it doesn't have flaws, it does. But many of these faults stem from the fact the film was made on a shoestring. And yes, in ways it is an unofficial remake of "The Hills Have Eyes" by way of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre". What is impressive is how much actually works in the film. At 88 minutes it moves right along, has great cinematography and locations as well as a soundtrack that pulsates. It does a good job of creating atmosphere and building tension. And it's funny too. My favorite bit was the scene where King Freak (T.C. Davidson) is carrying Tara (Ashley Elizabeth) like a sack of potatoes away from the Freak residence seemingly intent on getting her alone and doing God only knows what to her, only to be interrupted when Queen Freak (Micky Levy) calls to him from the second floor window like a good little freak wife and happy homemaker to tell him dinner, (Jill Jacobs, held captive and chained upside down) is ready. I guess Tara is going to be dessert. Such a tasty little morsel too. Nice cheeks.
