Audience Reviews for The Severed Arm

Drive-In Swill for sure. This was the second feature in a Grindhouse Double Shock Show, which I purchase from they have a great catalog and is free when you request it from there web site. Anyway this movie starts with men exploring a cave when one of the not so smart fellows starts banging on the beams for a rock sample, hello, are you sure you want to do that. Seconds later the roof caves in and there trapped, when asked how long do you think it will be before anyone starts looking, well were not supposed to be back for 2 weeks one says. Next thing we are lead to believe that 2 weeks has passed and there running out of food, so they decided to draw straws to see who there going to eat, Straws hell, I'd be looking at the guy who was tapping on the beam. Well they have there victim and they cut off his arm only to be found seconds after cutting off his arm. That would be my luck! Well next thing we know 5 years pass and guys from that mining weekend are getting the axe in the arm treatment one by one. A great revenge film. The ending holds a surprise that I will not give away. Its cheap enough to buy and enjoy two movies for less then the price of one. 2 1/2 stars close to 3.

An interesting movie! Starvation. Trapt. Enclosed in a dark, remote place. Hmmmm. It's quite interesting what one may think, and do, in order to survive.
