it's all there but sadly it's no budget
5 October 2010 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Being subscribed to Gorezone magazine UK this year they gave us a free DVD with every issue. Looks pretty nice. Each time the freebee comes out they have put a independent movie on it hosted by Emily Booth. Gorezone is known for his, sigh, gore and nudity. So on part one we could watch a movie by Bryn Hammond, the editor of Gorezone. The movie is so called based on true events. Shots used in the begin credits were in fact real pictures taken by the cops. Right. If you believe that then you're in for a treat at Xmas. The storyline is very simple, we have seen it a million times before. It's the classic way, 4 youngsters want to take a short cut but get lost, at an abandoned petrol station they've been warned by a weirdo (Friday the 13th anyone?) to look out for a psycho running in the woods, called Hammer Head. Then we get a lot of blah blah, a bit of wooden performances by some, a prank, and then the butchering get's started. Bryn surely knows his classics. Before we get to meet the 4 victims we see a couple get killed and we see the killer. Than we have our TCM credits. At the end of the movie you better watch until the end credits have ended because we going to see the best part of this turkey. The gore part. From the beginning you could see that this is a no budget flick, for example no extra light. The actors are talking their dialect so I can get it that for foreigners it sometimes will be hard to understand. The editing is okay, they had an eye for continuity. The fun part is of course when the only survivor gets full contact with the killer, he's beaten with a severed limb. By now you have noticed that I wrote severed and gore but that's the problem with this flick. When it comes to the killings that's the worst part. You can see clearly that the hammer never hits the victims. Almost no red stuff is flowing, no gore, and that for the editor of GOREzone. And of course knowing the magazine it's surely a mans magazine but here no nudity is used. The nudity you will have is some cleavage. And it's clear that that girl had some juggs to show but no can do. But again, he surely knows his classics, it's all there but it lacks blood and gore and bouncing balls.
