Whatever ya do lads, try the pecan pie...it's the best in town!
2 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had no idea what to expect. correction - i expected the usual Madsen gore and gratuitous killing but not such a multilevel plot line with tight dialogue and intense suspense. No bikers, no vampires, no T&A fest but simply some old school close quarters mano to mano acting

And amazingly done with an ensemble of road weary B actors who actually deliver in every scene - a triumph for small cinema shot on a Diner budget!

very powerful, tension filled double hand grip on edge of your seat claustrophobia gnawing at you, the voyeur, peering into this killing jar while a cold sharp scalpel slowly twists and turns into your gut keeping ya from catching your breath.
