this film makes me have 2 mind in assessing it
its nice to see adults as the main character instead of kids making this seem more like it could happen to anyone. the gore effect are wonderfully cheesy and low budget and i can say i enjoyed how our main characters transformed into something unexpected by the end.
this film suffer from being both unoriginal and really despicably tasteless. this film is a Texas chainsaw massicure ripoff with a few quick references to Friday the 13th (ironic since it was filmed on the same lake at the same time). however the effects are not as gritty as either and the villains aren't as good either. the villains are completely clones of the ones from Texas chainsaw massicure except they took away the main feachers of each. lastly there is a scene only about 8 minutes long that made me completely sick (and i sat through both the saw and hostel series fine) lastly the ending is pathetically sequel begging and i don't think i would ever want to visit this again.
i can understand why this has gotten a cult status but unfortunately i will not be joining it. the film has balls about what it is doing but it also has things i cant forgive in a horror movie
shameless ripoff (up to stealing scenes), rape, needing less pain, and unsatisfying conclusion, cant recommend
