The scratchings were nice our kid...,
This review is from: Inbred [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
A group of teen offenders go to the country for the weekend with two other youth workers. They end up at an old country house near the town of Mortlake in Yorkshire.
After they clean up the house so they can stay there they all head in to the village for some p drinks only to run in to the locals.
The next day they go to collect scrap metal when they again run in to the locals, but this time it ends up with one of the youth workers being hurt badly.
They go in to the village for help but it turns out to be the worst thing they could have done. The locals aren't as friendly and welcoming as they thought.....
If you mix The Hills Have Eyes with the BBCs League Of Gentleman, you get this little twisted, but fun horror film.
It starts off as you'd expect, we meet the group of people, some who are nice, some you cannot wait to get killed, and then we go to the village and its obvious to the trained eye what is going on.
There is always a project in these sorts of films, and the leaders always go first. Here its no different. The alpha male is first killed, and really, none of the other makes in the group have the qualities to lead, so its up to the co worker, who does very little.
Those who like gore will not be disappointed, but its not over the top gore like Saw or Hostel. In a sense of a better phrase, its in good taste, and doesn't really overwhelm the film.
The acting is good, you dislike the horrid ones and root for the others, and the locals are brilliant. But the best thing about this film, is that despite it being hilarious in parts, the makers have the courage to kill off all the heroes, leaving a nasty taste in your mouth come the end.
It's not for everyone, but those who enjoy a good left field horror, will enjoy this.
It's a shame it'll be overlooked by so many though.
