The Staunton family was portrayed great. Kathy Lamkin as the head of the clan was superb. The 6 college kids left much to be desired. It wasn't that their acting was bad, it was just that the writer forgot to give them interesting character.
I guess the wheel chair guy had already been done. If you like watching bloody women getting tied down and having their clothes removed to their undergarments, this one delivers.
The plot is basically - bunch of young adults get a ride from a stranger. Car breaks down, young adults seek refuge in weird old farmhouse. Farmhouse has nutters living in it who act odd and have a son who is like leatherface but without a mask. The nutter family gradually kill the young adults. That's it.
It's almost exactly like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre but much more tedious and drawn out. Most of the situations are practically sign-posted so anyone who has watched even just a few horror movies will be able to guess what happens next (with perhaps one exception).
What's really embarrassing is that the cover of the DVD I reviewed has a quote from original Dawn of the Dead director George A. Romero that says "This is as scary as it gets" - who directed this film? - Cameron Romero! George A. Romero's son!
Not only does having a quote from your own father on your movie completely render the quote as being utterly biased, but for George A. Romero to link his name to something so utterly rubbish should bring a tear to the eye of anyone who has enjoyed the original Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead.
That this film was made over 2 years before getting released straight to DVD says a lot. I say don't waste your time watching it.
Making his directoral debut, Cameron Romero (son of George.A) has done quite a good job; this has the feel of a newcomer cutting his teeth within the horror genre it has a raw feel to it, some bits are done very well and other parts don't quite come off.
A group of hikers (certainly not teens but I don't think the film infers that) off on a weekend jaunt get waylaid by a friendly stranger then ultimately come a cropper 'down on the farm'
The best parts of the film for me were when the slayings, dissections, dismemberments etc commenced, not because I am a 'gorehound' but because the director was clearly more in his own comfort zone and these scenes were very adept and handled with aplomb. The jury was out on certain aspects of his directorial style regarding his use of flashbacks and juxtaposition of imagery; I felt it neither added nor detracted from the story.
I thought the acting was largely good but never feel that qualified in evaluating an actors ability (I thought Danny Dyers role in the awful 'Straightheads' was good against near universal derision)I wasn't that convinced by the wheelchair bound grandma but the other matriarch of the film, the obese Kathy Lamkin, was very suited in that understated menacing 'hick' way as she was in her various Texas Chainsaw outings (modern versions) Buddy, for all intents and purposes the 'Leatherface' of this film was well cast also and I note he was also one of the Associate Producers of Staunton Hill.Read more ›

.....and the biggest one of all....wait for it....that chirpy local chap who was meant to be helping out? Well he was in on it all along, as was the petrol station bloke......you son of a b**ch!
So if you've been in space for the last 30 years or maybe have just awoken from an amazing, three decade lie-in you're gonna absolutely love 'Staunton Hill'.
Here's hoping there's someone, somewhere who fits the bill.

don't waste your time. On this example I would say that the son does not have his father's talent and will not have a very long career directing. Read morePublished on 18 Nov. 2010 by pompeyman
