Satisfying slice of backwoods horror sleaze
9 December 2015 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Vicious middle-aged redneck Carl Henry Jessup (a creepy and credible performance by Paul E. Respass) lives in the remote woods with just his feisty half sister Rae Lynn (winningly played with tart'n'tangy aplomb by Theresa Holly) and his scruffy buddy Billy Wayne (a solid portrayal by Chris Shumway) as his only companionship. However, since Carl is basically a real ornery and antisocial cuss, he has a most brutal tendency to brutally butcher any interlopers on his property for their meat.

Director/co-writer Joaquin Montalvan offers a flavorsome evocation of both the isolated sylvan setting and the seedy culture of the peculiar folks who reside in the area, vividly captures the gritty aesthetic of grimy 70's grindhouse horror fare, delivers a handy helping of graphic gore, and maintains a harsh seamy tone throughout. The deliberate pace, off-kilter atmosphere, and uncompromisingly downbeat ending all give this one its own singularly nightmarish and unsettling vibe. Montalvan's rough cinematography provides an appropriately grungy and unpolished look. Jay Dawg's twangy score hits the downhome harmonic spot. Recommended viewing for fans of no-holds-barred indie fright fare.
