Storyline

K.C. and Jo are two hardened female ex-cons who decide to build a marina on a lake in backwoods Texas to start a life for themselves, only to be hassled by the redneck locals who do not like outsiders, and that the lakeshore is their own regular hangout. But K.C. and Jo's worst troubles come from Junior, a slow-witted psycho redneck who gets the O.K. from his equally demented mother to kill the two. Written by Matthew Patay <pataygs@voicenet.com>

"You can't hide from Junior. He always finds ya."
21 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

The box for Junior reads: "The most deranged lunatic ever to stalk the screen." Yeah, right. Junior's more like a deranged retard actually. Here's the story: K-C and Jo-Jo are a couple of not-so-bright hookers who are released from prison and travel south looking to start a new life. They stumble across a marina and decide to fix it up and make a business out of it?? This would be hard in, what I like to call, "real life" because the marina obviously did not belong to them. It's too ridiculous. But put all thoughts of real life aside when watching this pointless slasher wannabe. It's at this marina where the girls have a run-in with Junior and the boys. And what a run-in it is. Here's the local sheriff's words about gun control: "You know, I generally let people keep firearms round here to protect they luuvved ones, you know, and they propty." Not property, "propty." I've never heard the English language ba****dized so badly in my entire life. Truly funny stuff. But, alas, laughs can't even save this flop of a flick. Junior is strictly exploitation and strictly horrendous. Another tag line on the box compares Junior to A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. What a joke...a cruel, tormenting, and embarrassing joke.
