Storyline

A prison bus with over a dozen criminals on board has an accident and rams another car, in which Dr. Douglas Madsen was on his way home. Most of the prisoners die. Four of them survive, one of them severely injured. After having killed all the guards, they head for the woods. They take Dr. Douglas Madsen hostage. Suddenly a huge house appears in the middle of the woods. The leader of the group, Arthur, emphasizes that he will kill Douglas and every single member of the "family" if his wounded brother would die. Meanwhile some members of the family show strange behavior, and very soon mayhem breaks loose. Written by gn

Decent enough effort without too many flaws
30 January 2013 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

After surviving a prison bus crash out in the wilderness, a doctor is taken hostage to tend to a wounded inmate, only for the house they choose to seek shelter in belongs to a race of bloodthirsty demons and dispatch the group one-by-one.

This was an overall enjoyable and entertaining effort, though there were some pretty big flaws present. The biggest one here is the needless circular story-telling that happens, as the two different versions of what happens are repeated again as the second half of the story to repeat the first half in order to tell everything again, and it really makes no sense as it employs the exact same set-up with the exact same outcome both times over. As well, the fact that hardly any of the characters are that likable makes for a tough watch when it's really hard to understand why they're together. Though, none of that matters when it gets going and starts to deliver the goods, and this one does a great job at producing copious and over-the-top quantities of gore and bloodshed, from crude surgeries of amputated limbs to hearts being ripped out, decapitations, gunshot wounds and much, much more here that make this a real gorehound's dream. That also means a lot of action scenes here with plenty of confrontations between the two sides, and it's quite a bit of fun especially with the peculiar group of demons present they must battle. Throw in an atmospheric house for the location and it's got enough to make it interesting.

Rated R: Extreme Graphic Language and Extreme Graphic Violence.
