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.

Beware of Canadians
10 October 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Apparently, some folk from Canada have decided to go all natural and became cannibals. Then, to everyone's dismay, they travelled down the deserted coast in the US. Food's aplenty there, where people like to live in isolated houses, have delicious babies and are surrounded by incompetent police.

That's about it. The movie is gruesome enough and the cannibals believable, if you ignore their origin story completely. I truly believe Pollyanna McIntosh was the reason why this movie didn't suck, as she plays the feral woman tribe leader. I mean, she was lovely even as a dirty violent almost inarticulate woman.

Even from the start, when the movie starts with newspaper clippings, weird music and special effected distribution names, the feeling is that the movie is bad. I blame the director for this. Quite a horror gem this could have been with just a little more attention to detail and a different cast.

The little boy was the only civilised person with a brain in the movie, the rest of the cannibal victims doing nothing but crying oh my god or holy s*** while they are eaten alive. If the premise of the movie was that people can sink to terrible lows, then why conclude that civilised westerners are not capable of directed violent behaviour when they are in trouble? Especially mothers with children, I mean I am afraid of those even in real life. That kind of thinking brought the movie down. That and the directing.

Bottom line: a good horror story (made after a book) with some gruesome graphics, but bad production values.
