Another Absurd and Sadistic Slasher
The girlfriends Anna (Marina Anna Eich), Clare (Thelma Buabeng), Rose (Esther Maaß) and Sarah Carter (Lili Schackert) travel from Washington to Bellingham to spend the weekend camping in the backwoods in Glacier Rocks. They meet a gentle German hiker and they unsuccessfully ask for direction to the retarded redneck Phil (Sebastian Badenberg), but they find the paradisiac spot. On the next morning, they are hunted by the sadistic rednecks Phil and his partner Samuel (Ralph Willmann) and they have to fight to survive.
"Break" is another absurd and sadistic slasher that follows the style of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Wrong Turn", "Simon Says" and other films of this sub-genre of horror. The actresses and actors have very realistic performances, and the rape sequence is impressive; but the plot excessively uses the clichés of the genre. The most irritating is the invulnerability of Samuel that is shot twice and still tracks the girls; and Rose that walks with an open fracture and helps Sarah. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): "Viagem Macabra" ("Macabre Voyage")
