another category 3 flick.
8 December 2001 | by czar-10See all my reviews

Yep, another category 3 flick that does not fail to nauseate! The story focuses on two brothers, one good and one bad. Well, the bad one is real bad. He likes to smoke crack while singing songs about raping women, in fact he's pretty big on raping his wife in front of his parents when he comes home from jail every few months. He also likes to put cigarette buts out on his son when his family members won't give him money to buy crack, gamble, and go to brothels with. Soon enough the good brother can't take it anymore and a bloodbath ensues. The end. Very hard for some to watch. I recommend this for the seasoned horror and exploitation fan only! A modern classic? Take it for what you will.
