You might not have heard of this movie, but I would recommend you finding it and watching it. I didn't hear anything about this and I just watched it today and I was surprised by the quality of it. It is directed by Jesse T. Cook and John Geddes who also wrote and produced it as well as starring in the movie. There is a lot of blood and gore in it for those who have a weak stomach!

This movie begins with three guys, Dustin(Thomas Webb), Owen(John Geddes) and Trevor(Jesse T. Cook). They are having fun in Colorado at a party and everything is rosy. They are driving back home when the weather gets very bad and they spot a little diner in Pennsylvania. The diner is filled with hillbillies(the old cliche!) and they eye up the young guys with contempt and distaste.The guys get some food which is disgusting and then they leave after asking some weird guy for directions back to the highway. They have a little spat with the weird waitress and then they get out of there.

They end up crashing after they hit a roadblock and Trevor's leg is broken. The other two decide to walk around and find help. They end up coming to a house in the middle of nowhere and they enter it to look around. They are startled when the owner, Ivan(Steve Warren) comes back and they tell him that they need help. They get a lift with him back to the car but Trevor has gone. Ivan tells them that he was probably picked up by a neighbour and taken to hospital. The two guys stay overnight with Ivan and they realise that he is a bit creepy, but he seems like a good guy.

The next morning, Ivan is doing odd jobs around the place with Dustin. Owen wants to leave and find help. Owen goes to the top of the hill to see if his cell phone will work, but it doesn't. Dustin asks Ivan where the toilet is and when he comes out, Ivan knocks him out. Owen returns and he is caught too. They end up in a basement where they are hanging by chains. Trevor is there too.
They realise that Ivan isn't as nice as he seemed. Another guy arrives on the scene . He is called Wade(Gary Fischer) and he is a killer too. He tortures the guys and he tells them that they are going to be eaten once their bodies are ready. Trevor is the first to be killed. They let him go, but he is so weak that he can't run very far. They come after him with a rifle and shoot him down. Then he is gutted and hung like a deer. He is chopped up and eaten by the cannibals.Dustin tries to escape but he is caught again. The two guys are subjected to torture and then released while the two hunters trail them and catch them again. They are going to be killed when they have a lucky escape after they kill two of the weirdos. They run away, but I will not give away the ending. Do they escape or will the last hillbilly get them first? I will leave it to you to find out.

Amanda's Verdict: I liked this movie. I thought that it was entertaining and it had a lot of thrills. It was very well-made and was a total surprise. I didn't expect much but I was impressed by these two film makers. I will be watching out for more from them in the future.I would definitely recommend it and I would give it an 8/10.

Jigsaw's Verdict: This movie is unknown, but it is a lot of fun. It has a simple story, but it has its fair share of blood and guts for the horror fan. If you are looking for a psycho- hillbilly-in-the-woods chasing screaming city slickers type of movie, then this one is for you! It's low-budget fun! I would give it a 6/10.
