A bus load of American students, all jocks, cheerleaders and nerds, are on a culture trip in Europe when they stumble upon a mysterious Hamburger stand in the deep European woods, selling 100% American Burgers. A visit to the Burger Factory behind the stand, renders them trapped in this unknown territory, and they are about to realize that European notion of American Hamburgers is terrifyingly different from what they're used to... The road trip descends into a battle for survival as Americans are treated as cows. Who's going to end up in the slaughterhouse? Will the nerds ever get to score with the cheerleaders? Cliques are formed... Strategies are made... And in the midst of it all they learn a thing or two about friendship, survival, consumerism, horny teenage urges and, perhaps most importantly, to never visit a fast-food restaurant ever again. And the nerds somehow end up having the... Best. Summer. Ever. Written by

Firstmost remember this is a horror comedy so you know to brace yourself if your not familiar with the genre. The over exaggerated tropes and jokes are meant to be stereotypical, and are executed rather well.
It hits the genre perfectly and nails all of the major nails on the head, psycho villain, the jocks, cheerleader and nerd tropes are done well.
I honestly couldn't guess how the movie was going to end, and I fell for a couple plot twists, so that was extremely well done.
For the more technical analysis - Camera work was very good especially considering the genre, too many suffer from shaky and/or fast moving cameras which are more likely to induce nausea than any of the gore. Thankfully this is not it, they used a stabilizing camera during chases so it can be enjoyed to the best. - Acting was good, they are not going to win any Academy Awards, but they are able to say their lines with the appropriate tone. The fact Swedes acted as the Americans despite their accents is a cherry on top for me. - Gore was okay, wish they could have changed from venal pump to arterial spray when appropriate.
