Storyline

In the sticks of Kentucky, a demented family of inbreds begin the process of cleaning up their blood line. Their twisted family is led by Billy Bob Hackford, who in his madness abducts unsuspecting young women. As a sadistic sport, the clan forces the girls to fight, gladiator style to the death, to determine the strongest. Billy Bob then rapes the victor in hopes of a pregnancy and expanding the Hackford family. The Hackford's plan changes when they abduct Amber Strickland, a southern tom boy whose family ties run as deep as her abductors. She's not a victim or prey, but a huntress raised in the backwoods of Alabama. Her brothers, Bear and Brody track her down and a feud of country folks erupt into a massacre, with only the strongest to survive. Written by Anonymous

Despite Some Unoriginal Ideas, a Respectable Film
25 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What we have here is another story of redneck hillbillies who may also be cannibals (or at least necrophiliacs) who capture women, make them fight, and keep the winners for breeding. There's an old saying among hillbillies that if you can't keep it in the pants, you should keep it in the family: this film breaks both rules.

I think this is the film that has been on my desk the longest between arrival and my viewing. By the time you read this review, you'll probably not be able to track down a copy of the film. But what can I say? I just don't know why we need so many hillbilly movies, with cannibal themes, set in Kentucky or West Virginia or anywhere else in the hills. Although this one was better than some I've seen, maybe even better than Rob Schmidt's "Wrong Turn".

The score is good, with plenty of Jew harp (a far-too-underused instrument), and a strong resemblance to Charlie Clouser's work on "Saw", which is either good or a ripoff, I guess. There's also plenty of neck-snapping if you're into that method of murder, including some done by a mute brother, who is thrown in for good measure. Heck ,we even have two mutants who look like Garth Alger and the kid from Tobe Hooper's "The Funhouse"...

Complaints? I have a few. Despite plenty of rape scenes (not shown) and woman-on-woman fighting, there's a lack of nudity. Can two women really fight in the mud without a shirt coming off? I don't think so. And how do you keep the women from escaping their prison if you don't have them in chains or being watched half the time? That's just nonsense.

But seriously, this film is better than expected and if you can't get enough hillbilly action, check this one out... I've seen a whole lot worse, and so have you. Actually, for your sake, I hope you haven't... I'm still not over Paris Hilton's craptastic "Nine Lives"...
