Storyline

In the 80's, after seeing his father and lumberjack foreman being hit by a protestor against the deforesting and arrested by the police, the boy Gus kills the protestor with a chainsaw. In the present days, Samantha, who is traumatized after being abused by her former boyfriend Jimmy, travels with her pothead friends in a van to the American Free Love Festival, a rock-and-roll concert in the woods. Near the location, they are assaulted by three local hillbillies, but they succeed to arrive in the festival. Meanwhile, Mayor Hal Burton and Deputy Buzz Hall try to give a minimum of organization to the event. However, a deranged psychopath serial-killer wearing a mask of Ronald Reagan uses an ax to kill the pacific stoned hippies. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

enjoyed it
26 October 2007 | by sarah-dmonrxSee all my reviews

This movie is great, for what it is. Any hardcore horror or cult movie fan will probably really like this film, as it is sort of a throwback to the old school slasher. For any horror film to do really really well, it has to be mind blowing and even then, net nerds are going to pick it apart until their is nothing left, hence.. the bad reviews are expected. The whole killer scenario, the mask.. the message, it's all so ridicules that it's not meant to be taken seriously (in my opinion) That's what makes this so great. As far as the killings go, I thought they were pretty great compared to most of what i'm seeing these days. Since i'm such a huge fan of the genre, I would love to see more large budget films like this make their way to the theater or even DVD. The bottom line is, if you're a huge fan of the horror genre then you're going to want to see this. If you're just looking to get "scared" and watch horror occasionally, this probably isn't for you.
