Storyline

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.

Bad! Really bad! Avoid it!!!
13 October 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

FYI all other reviews claiming how good this movie is, are just staged. Maybe written from producers, actors, i don't know, but there is no chance anyone in this world to like this terrible film.

All of you comparing this to "Texas Chainsaw" should be ashamed of yourselves. This movie is a total crap, nothing makes sense no matter how much you try to accept certain facts for the sake of the movie. Its just not believable by any chance.

Don't WATCH IT! I really want my 1hr 27min of my life back, and you staged reviewers are part of this scam, telling people to watch this insult to horror films.
