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

Keep Away from the Road of Light
9 June 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While driving his red truck through the countryside seeking adventure, Jon (Greg Martin) and his wife Susan (Hannah Flint) realize that they are lost. They find two rednecks on the road that give the directions and advise them to keep away from the "road of light". However, Jon decides to risk and gets the lonely road, trying to find an inn to spend the night. They reach the Beesley's Manor in Grockleton, and they are welcomed by the weird Landlord (Chris R. Wright) that provides a room for the couple. Meanwhile, the friends Ric (James Ford), Shaz (Tamaryn Payne), Heather (Sophie Rundle) and Marcus "Helmet" (Simon Stanley-Ward) comes to Grockleton to hike in the woods; however, they are hunted by abnormal rednecks and only the clumsy Marcus survives. When the Landlord discovers that Susan is pregnant, he decides to spare her life to perpetuate this family. But Jon escapes and together with Marcus, they plot a plan to rescue Susan from the bizarre and dysfunctional family.

"Small Town Folks" is one of the weirdest movies I have recently seen. The stylized cinematography gives a bizarre atmosphere to the dark tale, but unfortunately the black humor of the strange story does not work very well and is annoying in many moments. First the slow villains are too stupid and the gags are based in their stupidity and not in witty situations; the acting in general is only reasonable; and Simon Stanley-Ward is weak and not funny enough to perform the lead role of the "anti-hero" Marcus. Despite my remarks, this movie is practically the debut of the whole team (director, writers, cast and crew) and they show potential in the beginning of their careers. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Cidade Maldita" ("Damned City")
