I was actually quite looking forward to this one- sounded good, promising cover and based on true events. What more could you ask for? Well, the short answer to that is anything that wasn't this. I've seen some stinkers in my time, but this has to rate as one of the worst. A very noteworthy cast- Dennis Hopper, Michael Madson, Lyn Shaye and oh.... C. Thomas Howell and Jason Connery. If Connery Jnr is in anything, you know it's going to be cheap and BAD. The actual story is very fragmented- you don't actually know why they're killing people, least of all I couldn't make it out apart from being sadists with a pathetic little cattle prod that kept poking people in the neck. Its a very basic version of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre for kids- implied cannibalism, a hulking big brother with limited intelligence, and general lunacy all round. A rape for no apparent reason to the plot, people who could have escaped but decided they liked it there, a lot of rubbish about Cedar wood that was just dull, and a mentally challenged fat madman who wasn't after all. The whole thing just stunk. If you're thinking of watching this- please don't.
