A Small Town in Texas "Where Nothing Ever Happens"
In the small, Texas town of Furlough, "where nothing ever happens", a strange creature is killing goats on a massive scale and the local citizens are baffled by what it could be. For starters, it isn't eating any of the meat but rather draining them of their blood. Further, the number of goats killed isn't normal for any particular species endemic to the area. And the people begin to get even more concerned when it starts attacking humans. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this particular film was definitely a low-budget operation and this was clearly highlighted by some of the special effects. Yet, in spite of the fact that it was actually filmed in California, I was extremely impressed by the amazingly accurate manner in which the characters of southern Texas were portrayed. Although perhaps not as openly apparent, the racism is really that strong and the younger generation definitely yearns to leave these towns at the first opportunity. Be that as it may, I thought the acting was adequate enough and I liked the manner which the horror was mixed with comedy here and there. In short, although this film clearly suffered from a lack of funding, the director (Scott Maginnis) improvised quite nicely and I have rated this film accordingly. Average.
