Passable low budget shocker
21 April 2013 | by MattyGibbsSee all my reviews

This film was apparently banned until 2002 but watching it now it's pretty hard to see why. Although plenty of nasty and sadistic stuff happens it's nearly all off screen and implied.

There is a strange lack of tension which even the low budget shouldn't explain. Saying that although the acting is not of a high level the two brothers (Wendall Wellman and Jon Putch) do at least try hard to inject some horror to the situation even if they don't always succeed.

The one thing I did find amusing about the film was that Deputy Dewey from the Scream movies seems almost an exact copy of the young policeman in this film.

You shouldn't and probably won't watch this with anything but the lowest expectations and as long as you do that then this isn't the worst trashy movie to while away an hour and a half.
