Storyline

In 1989, the boy Martin Bristol has congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis (CIPA), a rare neural disorder, in which the patient does not feel pain, heat or cold. He is abducted by the deranged serial-killer Graham Sutter (Brett Rickaby) and brought to the Sutter Meat & Poultry, an abandoned meat-packing plant in Minersville, Pennsylvania, where Graham slaughters young women that he kidnaps. Five years later, the stubborn seventeen year-old teenager Allison Miller loses her parents and moves to her uncle Jonathan Miller's house near the decrepit plant. Jonathan, his wife Karen and their little daughter Wendy welcome Allison, but the teenager does not give much attention to her new family. Allison likes to run alone on the road and she passes by the meat-packing plant and then she meets the mechanic William "Billy" and has a crush on him. Jonathan advises Allison to avoid running near the old factory and Billy, who is a problematic teenager. Allison does not listen to her ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Meh.......with a big YAWN
31 August 2011 | by rightwingisevilSee all my reviews

I was so bored while watching this movie. You just can't make a lame screenplay work by just using a bunch of people, put them in the countryside somewhere in the rural America, then put one or two families with young kids or teenagers just reach puberty, with one or two moms, some kind of a father figure always looked like so unhappy and angry almost anything, then a loner who as formulaic to be a psycho, like to kidnap kids, teenagers, cut them up, using lot of red dye and required all the kidnapped one kept screaming their head off and at the same time using some lame horrific sound track to give off the horror feelings. The screenplay is so lame and so hollow without any surprise or ingredients of horror. I was so bored during watching this movie, kept yawning all the time so uncontrollable that my eyes were tearing up.
