4.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Great Fun, 16 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inbred [DVD] (DVD)
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.

Hah! Zero CGI?! Just shows how good Alex's digital effects are, because there are many, many CGI and digital composite shots in Inbred. But so subtly and well done, that they are virtually undetectable.

p.s. great review!
