But the nightmare isn't over yet.
The family live off whatever they scavenge from cargo holds, offices and hotels - including a steady stream On a trip to a Mexican border town, three college friends stumble upon a human-sacrifice cult. In this unsettling and creepy thriller, Karen Ilona Elkin , a young nurse who works in a psychiatric ward, boards the last subway train of the night only to have it stop suddenly in the In a remote part of the countryside, a bungled kidnapping turns into a living nightmare for four central characters when they cross paths with a psychopathic farmer and all hell breaks Takes place in the 80's where a group of teenagers go to visit an abandoned hotel, only to find themselves hunted by a psychotic killer through the Norwegian woods.
On a weekend boating excursion, husband and wife, Rob and Pia become lost and end up in the most unlikely place, a thick brush filled marsh, on an island in the middle of nowhere. With their boat in disarray, darkness coming on, and a heavy thunderstorm starting up, their only solution is to look for help or seek shelter of some kind. They finally come across a decrepit house and barn with no one home.
However, there are definite signs of the house being inhabited, and the enormous crop of marijuana in the barn suggests the homeowners may not welcome their presence. Even worse, there is no telephone or means of communication to the outside world. But when the deranged, redneck owners, Brett, Jimmy and their even more sadistic father Poppy return, Rob and Pia realize a fear far beyond anything they have ever known.
Furious with the unwanted intrusion of the affluent, snooping intruders, the monstrously sadistic farmers imprison and torture the couple, who fearing for their lives, Truth be told I've seen countless of other horror films that have pretty much followed the same story line over and over again. A small group of characters are dumped into a hostile and unfamiliar environment only to encounter a presence far more terrifying.
Same goes here, you have a Beautiful Young Couple who while fishing are forced to go ashore due to a brewing storm coming ahead. Only they get lost, typical right?

So far nothing special. It's only when they loose themselves inland that things quickly pick up from there.
As the storm brews rapidly ahead the young couple take refuge at a seemingly deserted farmhouse which unknown to them belongs to a pot growing, porno watching, trigger-happy farmer and his two demented sons. So when I was watching this film I wasn't expecting anything much different. When you do a horror film you usually have two things going for you, 1: A Scary and Original Plot something that's been done before, but with a twist to blow the viewer away , and 2: A Terrifying and Relentless Central Villain in this case villains.
This film has both and if it wasn't for Jamie's solid direction, he's magnificent use of camera angles, and Everett De Roche's clever script. I wouldn't of wasted my 2 cents reviewing this flick. As with other new age horror films the gore was amped up, but I thought it worked well with the film. Not like the "Saw" films where gore is just there to be there, in this film it actually serves a purpose. I loved the music score, which Blanks composed himself whenever they showed the house or the when the father or brothers entered they had a entrance , and more importantly I felt for the characters.
Which I didn't expect to happen, usually in horror films your just waiting for the next person to die. No back story, no emotion. In this I had a hard time watching Nadia Fares being terrorized by this insane family, and knowing the husband was too weak to do anything made it even harder.
With these two characters fighting desperately for their lives against our central villains, a very intense battle with bloody and wickedly gruesome deaths. I had to hold on the my seat to keep from cringing, you'll understand once you see the "hook trap" and the "personal security trap" which was just pure genius.
But I have to give the real credit to the actors portraying the demented family, David Lyons in particular. He commanded his performance whenever he was on screen, I actually wondered at one point if he really was this crazy. I can't wait to see his other works. Along with John Brumpton who played the father.
The first time we see him show up there's a flash of lightening, and just the look on his face alone told me why the sons were afraid of him, kudos! Your web browser is no longer supported. To improve your experience update it here.
