Chris Flynn is driving his car for a job interview in another city. However, an accident with a trunk transporting chemical products blocks the highway and Chris looks for an alternative route through the mountains of West Virginia to accomplish his schedule. Due to a lack of attention, he crashes another car parked in the middle of the road with flat tires. Chris meets a group of five friends, who intended to camp in the forest, and they decide to leave the couple Francine and Evan on the place, while Chris, Jessie, Carly and her fiancé Scott tries to find some help. They find a weird cabin in the middle of nowhere, where three violent cannibalistic mountain men with the appearance of monsters live. The two couples try to escape from the mountain men while chased by them. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

User Reviews

Good horror film with suspense, chills and tension
25 February 2005 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The plot line deals with a group of couples (Desmond Harrington-Eliza Dushku) ,(Jeremy Sisto-Emmanuelle Chiriqui) and the same couple of ¨Dawn of the dead¨ (Lindy Booth-Kevin Zegers) are going to hick at Virginia mountains. They will find a nutty and murderer family formed by cannibalistic mountain men and utterly disfigured, who will try to track down them into the woods. The protagonists will have to confront the ominous family starving of blood.

It's a nice horror film , it's realized in fast-moving and isn't tiring, neither boring, but entertaining. From start to finish the grisly suspense and horror action is nonstop. The storyline has got a certain likeness to ¨Texas chainsaw massacre" , "Ed Gein" and ¨House of 1000 corpses". The movie takes parts of both films. The motion picture mixes terror , creepy and spooky atmosphere , screams and great loads of blood and gore. There isn't a real interpretation because of the actors run, kill and shout, only . However, the cinematography is astounding (here appears wonderful forests landscapes) to difference ¨Texas chainsaw massacre¨ by Tobe Hooper , whose photography was granulated and worn-out .

Picture achieved success in boxoffice, in spite of the violence and grisly killings . The movie isn't apt for boys, neither squeamish. The flick will appeal to terror and gore fans. Rating : nice terror film . Well worth watching.
