Brutal... are the critics, 6 October 2007
Author: tradeczar from United States

I was a bit surprised at the venom from those who did not like this movie. Perhaps they were looking for something else. As much as I like Jeffery Comb's work in absurdist gems such as the "Reanimator" films, I was impressed with his portrayal of the sheriff. The comic interludes -- such as the car door scene -- were extremely well-timed. And casting Michael Berryman as the gentle but somewhat ODC dog handler was a stroke of genius. But as another commenter observed, the most impressive feature of the film was the character development. Rare is the slasher flick that lets you identify with its lead characters. Give this movie a try.
