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

What next?
4 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think that most of the reviews given for this film are spot on, given that (by the creator's own admission) it is basically a rip-off of the "Hills Have Eyes" franchise. The producers are unapologetic about this (as they should be) because their film works every bit as well (and in most cases better) than almost any other film in this genre niche. What bothers me is that none of the fine young actors involved in this project appear to have moved on to bigger and better projects. This is unfortunate, as this film's cast (in particular Ashley Reed) should have produced at least one Kevin Bacon ("Friday the 13th") or Jamie Lee Curtis ("Halloween").
