Storyline

There is a place... a place called Grockleton, wherein, high on a hill-top stands the lonely Beesley's Manor, governed by the villainous 'Landlord' and his lowly male counterparts (Pooch, Pike and the diesel-swilling Dobbin). Always on the look-out for new female company to help carry on the Beesley name, the Landlord keeps a watchful eye over Grockleton and anyone who dares to enter his land. When three improbable heroes stumble unsuspectingly into the Beesley's realm they are cruelly snared into a menacing hunt and an unstoppable frenzy of heart racing mayhem! Will the Landlord triumph and collect his 'trophies' (and maybe even a future bride?), or can the unlikely trio be victorious against him in his own game? Written by Official Website

An OK low-budget film hamstrung by hit or miss jokes and an abundance of green-screen
7 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jon and Susan are on their way to a holiday vacation when they get lost and find themselves in the small town of Grockleton despite two peculiar brothers the couple stops to ask directions from warn them against it. While there, the Beesley clan led by the sinister Landlord wish to keep the family name going, but they need a female to accomplish that. Enter the hapless couple who decide to spend the night at Beesley Manor on the hill. Elsewhere, Marcus (teased with the nickname helmet because of the ever-present helmet on his head) seeks out to become an unlikely hero. Oh yeah and the Beesley's also kill guy and kidnap any woman who dares set foot on their land in this low-budget horror/comedy/fantasy film.

The film is slightly likable enough if it's story is fairly generic, but the humor, which is of the hit or miss variety, is slightly more of the latter. Many of the people involved with the earlier and better "Freak Out" are involved in this one, i'd recommend you seek out that film instead as it's more fully realized and funnier. Although this one does have it's moments as well, as few and far between as those might be. Further the sheer abundance of green-screen in the movie became a tad of an eyesore before too long.

My Grade: C-

DVD Extras: Commentary by cast & crew; 'Folk Tales' a making-of featurette with bonus music video (30 minutes); and trailers for Kitchen Privileges, Ghost Son, Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror, & Blood Ranch
