Run for your life!
23 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am from the same area as the director of this movie. I really really wanted to like it and I can say without a doubt that this was the absolute worst movie I have ever seen - hands down. The dialogue was in many spots laughable, the director's daughter (and main character) was cute but could not act, and the plot was ridiculous and included a stalking panther and a character in BLACKFACE! As a Southerner, I was offended (as were the other people I saw the movie with) at the ridiculous redneck racist stereotypes that this movie upheld. Even the music, which was good in and of itself was too loud and in many spots didn't remotely go with the scene it was supporting.

I can't say it more succinctly - run for your life!
