Nasty backwoods horror - an impressive debut
on 20 June 2013
I am always a little wary of films marketed as by "the son of..." which almost implies it's only been made because their dad was a legend.
This film though, was excellent. Many horror films spend the first half of the film establishing the characters but in these films, the characters are such a bunch of drinking, drug taking, sexually promiscuous and obnoxious people I get bored waiting for some maniac to start bumping them off.
The characters here were nice, decent, likeable characters. I actually wanted to get to know them, and as a result when they met their grisly ends, their deaths were far more distressing to watch than is usually the case with entries in the genre.
The gore effects were exceptionally good, and the characters felt very real and well drawn out. Perhaps it was a little uneven in tone but I found very little to dislike. I look forward to Cameron Romero's next one -- I'm sure he will make one. Be warned though -- it's not an easy ride.
