Storyline

While returning to Los Angeles in a trailer through the desert, the driver Neil convinces his friends Tara, Harmony, Loopz, Michelle, Lee and Cashie to take a detour to an isolated mine where it could have a plantation of peyote. The owner of a gas station advises the group to not go to the place, but the stubborn Neil does not pay attention to his words. While driving in a secondary road, Neil sees a girl and wrecks the car in a rock. He decides to walk back to the gas station to call a tow truck, while Michelle and Lee climb a hill trying to get signal to their cell phones. Sooner the teenagers find that they are under siege of a group of sadistic deformed cannibals and they have to fight to survive. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

While looking out the front window of the camper, we see four killers slowly advancing, illuminated by the headlights. When they go outside there are now only three, the girl fires three shots and kills all three of them, with no mention of the fourth one, with two other killers appearing from different sides of the screen.

Darn Fine Indie Horror
18 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

After a second viewing of this film, I truly appreciate what the writers and director did with what they had to work with. This is one of the best indie horror flicks I've ever seen. This is how to do it, folks! Ok, the acting was mediocre at best, but the story (obviously an homage to TCM and The Hills Have Eyes) redeems any shortcomings in the acting department, and the gore is nicely done. Overall, I give this an 8. Nice.
