5.0 out of 5 stars Ee bah gum, that were good!, 21 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inbred [DVD] (DVD)
!!! WARNING. THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS. !!!

Whilst director Alex Chandon has got an interesting resume of films, including the wildly inventive and uneven horror anthology 'Cradle Of Fear' and the hilarious spoof 'Pervirella', this must be his crowning achievement so far.
A film that could easily be dismissed as yet another hillbilly horror, 'Inbred' in fact rises well above its contemparies, by containing a great script, a very dark streak of humour that manages not to overwhelm the horror elements, and a group of characters that the viewer actually cares about.
The two care workers and their unruly charges are a well drawn lot, especially earnest, PC spouting Jeff and arsonist Tim. Therefore, the scenes of slaughter have a real power to them. Of course, Seamus O' Neill as Big Jim steals the show, but that's not difficult as Big Jim is a great horror character, over the top but dangerous and mad.
As for the films references, well there are too many to mention, but 'Inbred' visits Wildreness, Wrong Turn, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and latterly Two Thousand Maniacs during its running time. In fact, it is during the scenes where the locals put on their deadly vaudeville for their kin, complete with a bucket of blood that things get dangerously close to tipping over too far into parody. It is to Chandon's credit that he reigns in these instincts to return to the more weighty horror themes, as the film could otherwise just turned into a bloody episode of 'The League Of Gentlemen'.
All in all, 'Inbred' is a terrific horror film that manages to disgust, entertain and amuse throughout. In fact, it could be one of my favourite recent British horrors, no mean feat when considering the top notch competition. Plenty of extras on the disc, 5 out of 5 for the whole package.
