The movie has the yee haw hillbilly 'i love ya momma' theme, but this time its better!
9 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Ignore the previous review. This borderline 'b' movie is better than most Hollywood rehashes. Try it, you wont be disappointed, just don't expect flawless acting and you will enjoy.... Quite gory and blunt...thats what horror is all about isn't it?? The previous reviewer must have spent most of his time behind his pillow, dreaming about the next Hollywood blockbuster releases. This film grabs your interest from the beginning and will keep you entertained throughout. Not being a huge horror buff myself, i was surprised as to how entertaining this film was. The ending leaves a little surprise, which is a bonus from such a low budget movie...Enjoy...
