Three girls discover that two men are willing to do anything to impress Mother and what impresses Mother is watching her son commit acts of rape and murder.

Quotes

Ernie: And remember, once you go out those doors, don't stop to think about what you feel. Because once you stop to think about what you feel, you doubt what you know. And once you doubt what you know, you're gonna assume you don't know it. Why? Because you don't act on it. Once you know what you know, you act on it.

15 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

I really do love this movie. It has all the blood, sex and insanity that a good 80's horror film needs. The two brothers in this film are just great charecters. In my opinion, they did their roles very well, and the depiction of the insane family values is just some great stuff. You have an old mother who could barely walk telling her sons to make a game out of rape. Where else do you get a story like that except from slasher films? I will always love this movie. Very creative film. The only reason these films are bashed is do to their budget and poor acting. What do you expect from a film like this. It's not about the acting or poor effects, its all about having a fun time and getting a kick out of the film. Don't expect Citizen Kane for crying out loud.
