Storyline

Survivors of a feral flesh-eating clan are chowing their way through the locals. Amy Halbard and Claire Carey strive to survive their abduction by the cannibals and save their children. A subplot involving Claire's despicable husband, Steven, gives an opportunity to cleverly compare predatory civilized folk to the appetite-driven primitives. Written by MODERNCINÉ STAFF

Goofs

Although the setting is to be around Dead River, Maine (the characters point out the region around Machias), the scene where the police and former policeman/investigator George are discussing the whereabouts of the killers, the police cars in the scene are a sheriff's vehicle and a clearly marked Michigan police car - complete with the lower and upper peninsulas displayed on the front quarter panel.

Cannibals, killer children, Female leader
18 October 2009 | by (central, IA) – See all my reviews

This is about a primitive family of people that are cannibals and live like cavemen. It could have been a real steaming pile and that is what I expected, but it was really good! There is LOTS OF GORE so it that isn't what your in the mood for, then pass on this one. I was really impressed with the special effects and they had a great cast! These people actually knew how to act which is rare in horror films. The hero in this story is actually a young, preadolescent boy. The antagonist lead is played by a woman. Those 2 things alone make this unique enough to kept me interested throughout the film. I also love that they weren't afraid to make the children killers or to kill them. As a horror movie it DEFINITELY deserves better than a 5. I have seen some real crap in the horror genre that was rated a 5. I wish that people that don't like the genre at all would just QUIT VOTING!! It isn't fair to true fans.
