A solid little low-budget slasher film
14 November 2006 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Six college kids driving back from a rock festival run afoul of a couple of psycho hillbilly brothers when their van breaks down on a remote rural road in the middle of nowhere. You can basically fill in the blanks as to what happens next, so it's a real testament to writer/director/producer/cinematographer/co-editor Marc Selz's skill and talent that this solid little low-budget indie horror shocker packs an unexpectedly strong and startling knock-the-wind-out-of-your-lungs lingering gut punch. This up to snuff number hits all the necessary slice'n'dice body count slasher bases to pass muster as a definite winner: capable direction, likable characters, a shivery gloom-doom synthesizer score, rough, grainy, yet still fairly polished photography which lends a pleasingly raw, stark and jump-out-at-you gritty immediacy to the grisly proceedings, genuinely hair-raising outbursts of ferociously gory and ugly violence, a tightly constructed plot, a refreshingly terse and to the point filler-free 75 minute running time, a substantial amount of hard, gripping and sweaty tension, and, best of all, one hell of a socko surprise twist ending. Overall, there's enough cinematic strengths present and accounted for to compensate for the hit-or-miss acting and extremely variable sound quality.
