An almost Perfect Low budget Horror Gem that hopefully will NOT go unnoticed!
9 May 2011 | by (yourhdd) – See all my reviews

I have to say after more and more mainstream crap Horror like Scream 4(Sorry Wes Craven, but Scream 3 and 4 were just monotonous and overbudgeted) and the flood of remakes, its very refreshing to see something new and semi-original come from the independent film industry. I know that the mainstream crowd will probably rate this horribly or say it has plot holes(What everyone says when they don't understand something), but don't buy what they're selling unless your in their category.

Premise: The movie starts off telling the violent story of a notorious biker gang that is into drugs, violence, and crime getting together for a party. Headlines of the gangs exploits are splashed across the screen in the form of newspaper articles of recent arrests. The party quickly comes and goes then some real weird things start to happen after everyone leaves the party house.

This movie definitely is a send up in the spirit of Evil Dead and the Exorcist thrown in with a few other genre Slasher flicks. The movie definitely stands out as a smashmouth, grindhouse Independent, supernatural slasher with a very decent twist at the end that is like the icing on the cake. I can already hear the argument that the film tries to be too much, but trust me, the movie handles everything, including the twist right down to the last minute. It kept me glued to the screen. Then again I love supernatural elements which this movie has a lot of.

I gave it a 9 because its already off to a bad start. It deserves a "solid" 7 rating. Acting is top notch, gore is above par, tense moments are everywhere, and an "I really didn't see it coming", twist. What can I say? I loved this movie and I highly recommend it to the REAL die-hard genre fans who can appreciate good REAL independent horror in the tradition of Evil Dead and The Exorcist.

Bravo!
