Not really a horror horror.... certainly not "oldschool"
23 April 2020 | by MikeHunt1075See all my reviews

So, Triple-H plays an ex-con as usual.... no, wait. That's not Triple-H... hmmm... so this film with Booker T and DDP making cameos has a lead role played by someone playing Triple-H as an ex-con who on his release heads to a town where he has a motive to find some hidden money Booker Ts brother hid their a decade prior (Its not Stevie Ray, mustve been a third brother?) He gets hired by Bo Duke who has forgotten about racing The General Lee and become a preacher who happens to own the house and hires the fake Triple-H to fix it up. Only fake Triple-H discovers the house has some hidden occupants.

I'd say the script writer wanted to make a Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel, got rejected and re-wrote it to not be the characters of TCM, but figured making the Leather Face character a female would surely be a way to hide his original script plan to get this made.

Fake-H then makes friends with a girl who feels some unknown reason to stick to him like flies to ... dung... and when the dung hits the fan she ends up in it as deep as he is as they have to fight for survival.

I wouldn't really call this a horror. It takes a few elements of past horror looking characters and enters them in a small TCM style plot, but it soon becomes more of a typical action movie. The done to death scenario where some guy is just so brave and tough that he plans to just leave the trouble, but feels it's his duty to go back and protect the girl and kill the bad guys to save the day kinda thing.

It's no tribute to old-school horror, those reviews are obvious fakes that plague Imdb these days.

It's ok for one viewing, but it's a once seen, you'll never have an urge to see it ever again deal.

See it, don't see it, you decide, but you're not missing anything special.
