Did You Know?


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 »


In the "desolate" campground, at various times you can clearly see car lights passing. Noticed first while Rachel is searching for Zack but it is throughout the movie in many scenes. See more »

Franklin Guerrero Jr Returns with his best Film yet!
23 February 2008 | by mattatptSee all my reviews

After watching the 8th plague, and being slightly disappointed I knew he was capable of more, fairly unique ending compared to other STV horrors, and a slightly fragmented but good story.

Carver however was a masterpiece in STV Horror. This film brings some of the most savage, gut wrenching brutality I've seen in a film. The brutality is up there with Audition, and it shames both Hostel films.

The tension is thick almost straight away, the industrial, metal grinding music is enough to make some people cringe alone, in it's entirety it's creative, strong disturbing and nasty.

after watching this, and comparing it's standards to the 8th plague I can safely say he's getting better with every movie he makes. Keep an eye on this Director.
