Did You Know?


When the young ladies are stopped by the officer on the highway, his uniform has "Sheriff's Department" patches, yet his collar brass is "PD". These would be two separate, distinct agencies and wouldn't, at least in Arizona and Texas, be worn by the same officer. His vehicle is also marked "Police", and again assuming this takes place in Arizona, would normally be a city law enforcement vehicle,while someone from a Sheriff's Office would be a county officer. They would be using vehicles marked "Sheriff" or "Such and such County". There's actually a big difference in the functions of the two agencies. See more »

One Of The Most Uneven Messes I've Seen
2 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

El Charro opens up in a fairly interesting way, leading me to believe it was some sort of religious supernatural thriller. However these themes are pushed aside, and not really developed. Later the group of friends run into a creepy Sheriff, who escorts them to bar, filled with assorted weirdos, including a wheel chair bound death metal rocker, suffering from some kind of mental handicap. At this point I'm thinking the film is going to become a Devil's Rejects, or Texas Chainsaw Massacre insane family type of film. No again, they simply leave the bar, and the Sheriff, and his wacky pals are never developed beyond that. Seriously, the writer or somebody has really messed up here, the film is a jumbled mess, and I can't begin to imagine where they went wrong. The film doesn't know what it wants to be, one minute it's going for the intense dramatic angle with a girl coping with the suicide of her sister, the next it features snore inducing stereotypes trying to party, and get laid. Finally by the end, it decides to go the slasher route, but it's far to late. I rate this a two, because I know some of the actors' are better then the material, and there are a couple decent kill scenes in the end, though nothing special. For those of you wondering, there is a brief lesbian shower scene with Tabitha Stevens, but it lasts all of three seconds, and you don't see much of anything. On a side note, Lemmy what were you thinking? You have to stick with Troma man, you were great in Tromeo And Juliet, but this garbage is beneath you.
