Town-gone-mad mayhem that I enjoyed
10 August 2013 | by udar55See all my reviews

The entire town of Canon City, Colorado goes nutzo when the planets get out of alignment. Somehow this effects the Earth's gravity, resulting in everyone acting like a loon on a full moon. The lone non-nut in this is "Big" Jim Driller (Rex Cutter), the owner of a local silver mine who has to battle the deranged sheriff (who plays Russian roulette with his own toes) in order to save his son and daughter. This is truly a one-of-a-kind flick and, once the madness starts going down, I really started to dig it. Crazy stuff like the town butcher lopping off hands of those in line or a lady threatening to jump off a 4-inch curb. Cutter, who is also the executive producer, is actually great in the lead and when he starts sporting an eye patch I saw him as the indie world's Rooster Cogburn. Like THE CARRIER, it is a low budget affair but I started to admire it for the amount of scale and scope the filmmakers tried to bring to the project.
