In rural Alabama, two couples find themselves in a fight for survival. Running from a maniac (The Tin Man) bent on killing them, they flee deep into the woods and seek refuge in a house. They soon realize the killer has purposely lured them to this house and that they are now trapped. As they huddle around an old fireplace, a tin can falls through the chimney. Scrawled on its side is a message from the killer, establishing his House Rules. The rules call for their deaths unless they kill at least one of the four. They have less than 12 hours to find a way to survive. At sunrise the game is over and everyone dies if the killer's demands aren't met. What they quickly learn is that the only way out... is in. But going further into this house--where unknown challenges await them--is equally deadly. Written by
This movie is not what it seems. For those of you out there who enjoy horror movies, good or bad, you may stumble upon this one and think it looks quite humorous. I admit when i saw the poster with that ridiculous sigil of baphomet I got VERY excited. I thought there was going to be satanic blood orgies like in a Jess Franco movie. The subsequent 90 minutes proved to be quite the contrary.
The movie attempts to start out on a bang, but if you've ever watched a horror movie before than you'll feel it's pretty bland. From there it takes us on a trip with a struggling couple. The husband, an unpublished writer, and the wife, an unsigned country singer. These are immediately two people i couldn't care less about. After we get to know them and their situation a tiny bit the couple get a flat tire and have to make there way to a phone. The believe they've found one when the come across a large house that is now used as an inn.
I could continue but from there an already terrible movie just plummets southward. We get to deal with at least 20 minutes of boring, flashback filled, minutes of the characters dark pasts whilst they try to escape the house they've suddenly been imprisoned within.
I could go on and on about how everything they tried to do hear has been done before and with much greater results. As a horror movie alone this movie is dreadful, but what really pushes it over the edge is the ending.
Now the whole way through this movie, if you bring yourself to watch it, you'll find it rather hard to understand why it's even rated R. It does NOT contain adult language, sexuality/nudity, or even any graphic violence. This is when things really start to dawn on you, and as the movie unfolds you'll realize you've been duped. This is NOT in any way the movie you thought you were going to see. This is a religious film, it may as well have Kirk Cameron in it. The underlying message is painfully obvious. This movie was a trick devised by a religious group to get all of us blood and guts loving sinners to see the error of our ways.
I was disgusted, offended, and downright angry when i left the theater.
