Alex Chandon's take on the classic 'backward horror movie' sees the nuances of Deliverance, The Hills Have Eyes and Texas Chainsaw Massacre transferred to sedate Yorkshire countryside. A group of young offenders are chaperoned by their wily care workers in an attempt to generate some modicum of social conscience through a team building exercise in the remote village of Mortlake.

A chance run in with some locals sees the group pitted against the bizarre inhabitants of Mortlake as each becomes a potential showcase for an underground Cirque de Freak. The ensuing mayhem revolves around how the protagonists attempt to outwit the strange collection of assailents and make a bid for freedom.

INBRED is a brutal movie that manages to combine the shock and gore of contemporary horror movies and the black, black comedy that we British love so much. It is fair to say, rather than reboot the genre, this particular take pays significant homage to the original movies that shaped it. Zero CGI, close attention to character study and powerful, well orchestrated in-your-face violence helps make this movie much more than a standard romp through the genre.

A cult classic? Oh, yes. If there is any justice at all, time will see it achieve much, much more.

4.0 out of 5 stars COMPLETELY OFF THE MAP,, 29 Sep 2013

Katie (Jo Hartley) and Jeff (James Doherty) are two social workers who take four troubled teens to a remote cottage in a remote village for...I am not sure what, but they are there. The townsfolk all seem to have the same bad teeth and large ears. After a run in, our heroes become the main attraction in a theater one might see in "Blood Sucking Freaks" complete with a bare bottomed organ player right out of Monty Python.

The theater aspect, which was by far the highlight of the film, needed a third act. There was significant internal conflict within the teen group which served more as a distraction. Instead they should have used this as an opportunity to develop dark humor. The film is also sold as a comedy, but the humor was more in their outfits. The production certainly has the potential to achieve cult status as it has all the qualifications, but for me it fell short. Personally I prefer "House of a 1,000 Corpses" or "10,000 Maniacs" or "Blood Sucking Freaks" for this type of cult genre.

Recommend as a strong cult rental.

Parental Guide: Frequent F-bombs, attempted rape, sex play, male rear nudity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 9 Dec 2012
This review is from: Inbred [DVD] (DVD)
A terrific British horror movie.....the British Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
This film has it all.. mordant coal black humour, scintillating and realistic dialogue (for a change), amazing scenes of gore and characters who are believable and do not do stupid things.
A real shot in the arm for the British Horror Film industry ( but less impressive i would imagine for the Yorkshire tourist industry)

5.0 out of 5 stars "They Won't Leave, they Never Do", 6 Nov 2012

This review is from: Inbred [DVD] (DVD)
This little scorcher of a film is set in Yorkshire. It is about four young offenders who are being taken on a weekend with two care workers to learn a bit about how others live. Jeff (James Doherty `In The Loop'), is the square one who wants rules and boundaries to keep the kids in check and Kate (Jo Hartley - `The Young Victoria') is the one who gets down with the homies type.

Well they arrive at their destination which is a dilapidated ex farm type place and get down to lots of swearing, complaining and `attitude' especially Dwight, who is a real pain. As a reward for cleaning up the dump, they get taken to the local pub, `The Dirty Hole'. This is full of locals who are quite clearly dentist dodgers and the Landlord Jim doesn't do food but does do home made pork scratching - the hairy sort. Next day they sally forth to do some reclamation work at a train graveyard and soon the locals are on the scene and things get out of hand pretty quick.

This is just excellent, I actually expected nothing, but this is like an extreme version of `The League of Gentleman', it says in the opening credits who designed `Blood and Gore Effects', so you pretty much know what was coming. But and there is a great big but here, they are incidental to the whole thing rather than being the raison d'Ítre . The humour is dark in a depraved way, the grotesquery of characters are all just brilliant and it is genuinely scary in a kind of freak you out way, rather than relying on sudden `frights'. We even have a house band at the pub and a full on banjo player, with a rather well penned ditty that gives some indication as to the welcome `outsiders' will receive. Add to this the fact that the characters all get a chance to shine and you have close to a perfect horror flick.

This is not for the squeamish; there is blood, gore, torture and some jaw droppingly ugly freaks here. Co writer and director Alex Chandon has made an original, highly entertaining and darkly comic tale and its based in Yorkshire - what is not to like? A special mention goes to Seamus O Neil (War Horse) who plays Jim and steals every scene he is in; he alone gets the full five stars, this was the most entertaining film I have seen in ages and can not recommend highly enough, don't eat your tea whilst watching and if you like pork scratchings, this will put you off them for life.

I was really looking forward to this film having watched the superb Eden Lake i thought another gritty British film ( v.loosely based along the same lines ) would match up....Sadly it didn't AT ALL. Ridiculous story and poor acting throughout More humorous than brutal...would wait until the postage is more expensive than the item and then its still a flip of a coin to whether you actually buy this.2/5

Just what you need from a British horror! The humour throughout the film is brilliantly measured, it never gets too much so that it distracts from the twisted gore fest, but it allows the film to move at a fast pace maximising the amount of creative messy killings one film can offer. So many horror films disappoint with obvious lazy storylines and clichéd endings, this is not one of them, an imaginative shockingly perfect disembowelment of a film that will without doubt be a classic amongst people like me (and I'm only not even related to Podge).

5.0 out of 5 stars gags to test your reflex, 16 Oct 2012
This review is from: Inbred [DVD] (DVD)
If you want to be thoroughly grossed out (in the best kind of way) and truly laugh out loud then watch this film! It is absolutely horrifically hilarious and will test your gag reflex to its limits. The jokes are plenty and give refreshingly homagic dues to stereotypes you can only dream ever truly existed.
