A gut-wrenching, non-stop roller coaster ride through the hellish underbelly of inner-city America. A birthday celebration at an upscale restaurant sets in motion events that bring Sissy, her brother, Mikey, and friends, Kenny and Barbie, face to face with the macabre world of the Boneboys. Inspired by Jonathan Swift's cannibalistic tale A Modest Proposal, the Boneboys are international predators who deal in human flesh - dead or alive. Their hunting grounds are the cities of the world.

Simply put... The WORST movie I have ever seen!
12 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So after looking through the other reviews I realized that people were only writing good ones to trick others. Let me do you a favor, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!

I should begin by saying that I LOVE cheesy slasher films. I appreciate unbelievable and over the top. I get it when the blood is outlandish and the girl always trips in the chase scene. This movie looked like it could have been that... But it wasn't. Not even a little bit!

I am still unsure how the production staff was able to get a studio to pay for this film to happen but they did... There are random scenes that have absolutely nothing to do with the movie. The black dude with the chainsaw is a horrific actor and over acts his role as far as he can possibly go. The worst part is near the end where there is this weird monster thing chained up that just keeps screaming at the top of his lungs and there is no point for it. There are a lot of parts where the entire cast is talking at once making it literally impossible to understand any of the dialogue. Finally when you think everything is winding down is when the movie gets the most ridiculous and the director throws in every movie prop he could get his hands on.

This director attempted to make cannibal version of lost boys in a restaurant with sloth chained in the corner. Need I keep explaining how bad this movie is?
