Audience Reviews for Barricade

Barricade (not sure how the title relates to the film) is about a couple of old friends (regular horror duo Raine Brown and Joe Zaso) reuniting in Germany to rekindle their own friendship and possibly more while camping out in the woods, which happen to be inhabited by demented, mutant, cannibal freaks that kill just about everyone they come in contact with (which is a lot in the surprisingly crowded woods) in some really gory ways. I'm not doing the word "gore" justice here. This HAS to be one of the goriest films I've seen in awhile, especially from goremeister director Timo Rose (who also makes an appearance in the film) who usually goes for the gore, but never this gory! The big problem with this film is Rose's attempt to make an American film through a German perspective, which dilutes the acting and storytelling, thus causing several bad and awkward moments that either go nowhere or irritate the viewer. It's a shame because everyone's heart is in the right place. If you can get past those moments and just stick to the "horror" and "gore" aspect of the film, you may find it somewhat enjoyable. Beware, there is one particularly squeamish and upsetting scene involving boob torture and dissection; definitely a highlight of this film. Wow.

When three friends two of which havent seen each other in years decide to reunite in germany for a nice weekend trip of relaxing hikeing and camping in the woods they never thought it would end up the way it did as it turns out there is a long forgotten cannibal family hideing out in those same woods and have been feeding off of tourist campers for years now the friends must fight back if they wanna survive, Pretty thin story is just a cover for all the blood and gore they threw at this movie which wasnt all that bad but wasnt all that good either gore fans will love watching this.
