Not even a decent amount of gore can save this one.
This movie was a great disappointment considering the rather interesting concept that could have made for an hour-and-a-half of gory entertainment. Unfortunately this movie made me wish I hadn't wasted my time on it.
So this movie is about a disturbed and mentally handicapped man named Jacob (Dylan Horne) whose only friend is his little sister Sissy (Grace Powell). After his dad (sorry I don't remember his name) was killed after going crazy and trying to kill his mom Edith (Krystn Caldwell) after reading a book he found under the floors of a supposedly haunted house he inherited (which is shown in a flashback), his mom marries a drunken a**hole named Otis (Larry Wade Carrell) who abuses and beats her and is nothing but nasty to her and her kids but she stays with him anyway because "he's a nice guy, he's just going through a rough patch", it's only a matter of time before he kills her or one of her kids (at least her co-workers and Sissy acknowledge this, because she sure didn't!).
Sure enough Otis is released from jail and goes out drinking again with his friend (I'm not even going to pretend I remember his name, I can't even remember if the movie ever told it), and then comes home and kills Sissy. When Jacob finds this, he exacts his brutal revenge on Otis, and I have to say, it was a joy watching Jacob kill this disgusting individual (actually you don't really see him being killed, but at least you get to see an arm being ripped off).
The sheriff (Leo D. Wheeler) and Otis' brother (don't remember his name either) hear about this and him and several other people try to hunt Jacob down and kill him. Carnage ensues.
If there's one thing this movie's got going for it it's some decent gore towards the last 20 minutes (because I can tell you right now, it sure ain't the acting!), but there still isn't enough to make up for everything that's wrong with this movie. Jacob's revenge on Otis was satisfying enough though.
One other thing I'd like to comment on is one of the flashbacks where people in a bar try to stop Jacob's dad from killing Edith (by which I mean they go after him one-by-one, waiting for the person currently going after him to die before jumping in). Another scene which has some decent gore.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot about the dubbing, at least two people and a cat seem to be practicing ventriloquism.
I saw this for free on Netflix which I am happy about because I would be even more irritated if I had to pay a dime for this movie along with the hour-and-a-half I wasted on it, and I advise that if the only way you can watch this movie is to pay for it, then skip it and watch something else, wait until it comes on SyFy channel or something and watch it then.
