Silly but still decent-enough low-budget slasher
20 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Arriving at an isolated cabin, a group of friends runs afoul of a demented family of psychos living in the house as well as the only sane member of the group living with another family wanting an inheritance of his and must try to keep everything in order to keep the different sides peaceful.

Although it has major flaws, this ended up being quite a decent enough slasher. One of the few fine parts of this one is the absolutely insane amount of cheesy antics on display throughout this one. The low- budget nature here gives this one a goofy start with the group playing around inside the house only to find the deranged group of psychopaths living inside which causes this one to launch into some rather fine low- budget material during the attack. Detailing the clean-up that takes place at the house afterward and their special relationship inside makes for some more goofy fun to occur here as the scenes of the group torturing their captive manage to provide some decent scenes. There's also some fun to be had with the family of psychos stalking those that come into the house, from the loner who breaks into the house to the assault on the film-crew that comes out of nowhere that adds to the cheesy overall charm on display. The finale is the big rush of action that manages to work in some decent attacks here, and based on the silly conclusion fits in with the rest of the film rather nicely as well as providing this with some nice purposeful laughs. While these manage to make the film enjoyable, there's still quite a lot of flaws on display. The main issue here which really hampers this one is the utterly incoherent and nonsensical storyline. This one manages to cram in way too many elements than what should be necessary, from the family of psychos still living in the house to the survivor living with the deceased father's best friend and his family to the film-shoot that shows up out of nowhere and the doctors arriving to reevaluate the released psychopath on the loose, among others also featured. Containing one or two of these story lines here would've made this one miles better with the streamlined focus here eliminating plenty of useless scenes that don't go anywhere. As well, that would've allowed time for the film to discuss some of the missing links in the story, as for how he managed to survive the actual incident to why she was there at the time and what the ghouls actually are based on the concept of the final twist that turns it all around. The most overwhelming flaw, though, is the utterly apparent low-budget look and quality to this one, from the location work to the costumes and just about everything here that makes this look so amateurish that very little can be done to overcome it. These hold it back so much.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Language, Graphic Violence, Nudity and a sex scene.
