What?? Horror flick??? Coulda fooled me.
23 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hmmmm OK lets start off with the GOOD of this movie....The female actresses...NOT their acting Ann Henson annoyed the hell out of me,but they were both very attractive and the phone sex scene was pretty steamy(guys you know what i mean). Now the BAD(Besides the whole movie).OK From beginning i didn't know what the hell was going on the movie was pretty easily identifiable when she of course broke down in the middle of nowhere at night. Blah blah blah ill get to the very descriptive part of this comment.Boring, no gore, didn't show any of the killings which were very very minimal, the story(if any)was very dull,the directors attempt to add a story and twists were very poorly attempted(that is of course if they were even noticeable),characters were just planted in the movie and somehow became part of the story(again if there was one) and then when the lead characters got away somehow this fat beaten and shot hillbilly cannibal gets to the destination at the end before they do in a vehicle. OH I'm not done you crazy little goats a cabin is discovered and a bunch of letters were signed to the crazy hillbilly guy which is where the TWIST "Wink wink" is planted ,then a very similar scenario is also discovered a bit later(there's a pregnant hag tied up to a bed signifying that the crazy cannibal uses her to breed sound familiar????) All in all i think i would have rather of masturbated to fat women porn then watch this.
