Stupid but fine
10 October 2020 | by harybobjoebobSee all my reviews

This movie is one of the dumbest I've ever seen, not necessarily in a bad way but this was not what I was expecting. The movie starts off with a bunch of unnecessary nude scenes, racial stereotypes, passable acting. Once they get to the swamp with Victor Crowley is when it picks up, I wish the Victor Crowley character was handled a little better, I feel like a lot could be done with him, Kane Hodder does a great job as him but he's kinda just thrown in the movie. The gore is great, and most scenes are comedy gold, for the wrong reasons probably. If you like gore you'll probably like this.
