Trivia

Originally, in the scene in which Zack tries to cut in line for the bathroom, he is stopped and asked, "Who the f** do you think you are... Tony Danza?" When the movie was released in France, the name "Tony Danza" in that line was changed to "John Travolta" for the French dubbed soundtrack. See more »

Texas Chain Saw Hostel Camp
24 February 2008 | by steve-1570See all my reviews

This film has a number of similarities with The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, plus some of the more gruesome elements of Saw and Hostel.

A group of people in their twenties are on a camping holiday in the American backwoods.

They agree to do some work for somebody and find a few reels of film and a projector in a barn.

They watch the films, which feature some disturbing images from what they assume are home-made horror movies.

The films look pretty realistic for home-made horror movies.

Nearby lives a large, demented, psychopath who happens to appear in the aforementioned films.
