This film is about the Chancelor family. The mother (Maggie) and her son (Cole) head off after saying goodbye to Cole's father only to have an accident near a country farm. They are found by a farmer called Lukas Walton who takes them to his farm and they are never seen by the father again. It's now 8 years later and the father gets a call from someone who claims to be his son Cole. So the father hires an ex detective to go back to the County where his family went missing. But the Detective finds that there's something more than just a missing persons case here. He also thinks that the local Sheriff (Doug Bradley) is keeping something from him. Lukas is raising Cole as his own son, and things escalate from there. But what has happened to the mother Maggie? Written by

This movie seemingly has multiple personalities. It tries to be funny or horrific, though never at the same time. The "horror scenes" are pretty good, frightening even. The menacing kidnapper is believable, as are his hostages. The "comedic scenes" are just fillers to occupy space. It seems to have separate story lines, twisting within the main selling point. The lack of typical horror tricks, like lots of gore and weapons, brings a certain anxiety that makes this film a thriller. Most of the acting is terrible, yet if you're a true movie enthusiast, you'll endure the obvious "b movie" atmosphere. The plot isn't a bad idea, the production of it is. I won't advise against seeing it, I'll just advise not to get your hopes up. Though obviously entertaining, some of its scenes are hard to watch, due to realistic subject matter or the obvious terror of horrible acting.
