Ok, i can't be to hard on this as i knew what i was getting into. The cover i saw(which is different from the one on here) has a big pic of Jenna Jameson with her name in big letters at the top and when i saw Ginger Lynn Allen and Chasey Laine were in it as well I thought this was going to be a softcore/torture porn classic! This obviously knows what it is and for alot of the time doesn't try to be anything else. A teacher and her small class of history students go to whats supposed to be Ireland to learn about local legends and shit like that only to be attacked by some beast/s cos they disturb the legend of Sam Hain. This has what every B-movie horror should really; bad acting, a dodgy script, over the top gore, y'know, the good stuff! One of the worst things is Ginger Lynns(i think its Ginger Lynn anyway) attempt at an Irish accent, which she clearly has a go at, to be fair. The ending is also crap. You get the idea that they ran out of budget so had to just end it randomly! Saying that, Bobbie Phillips stands out as the teacher, one of the only people in this that can act and is quite fit to. Unfortunately Jenna Jamesons only in it for under 5 minutes making the big pic on the front disappointing. Overall, quite a fun B-movie that pretty much delivers on gore but not enough sex/nudity for a film with at least two hardcore porn stars!

Now my rating says 3 and a half stars, but this would have easily been a 4 for me, if the full uncut death scenes were in the actual film. You can see all the uncut death scenes in the special features of the dvd, which the gore is absoultely fantastic, so if watch the film, definitley check out those scenes, there freakin great!! I also loved the make up effects on the inbred cannibals, they looked totally awesome. From what I've heard, the director had a hell of a time making this movie too, between getting some of the gore cut, and the people involved with the film re-editing it, and also going back and shooting a whole new ending with a diffrent director, but I still really, really liked this a lot. I love backwoods horror so much!! 3.5/5 for the film on the dvd, but a 4/5 with the uncut gore.

What a fantastic movie. A mixture of The Hills Have Eyes and Wrong Turn, only perhaps even better. Great, great film. You want deformity? You want crazy death scenes? You want hot chicks? Then you want this film. It's marketed as having Richard Grieco, and even moreso (including DVD cover picture) Jenna Jameson in it, but their roles are incredibly small. But this didn't matter one bit. The rest (although bad actors) were great in their respective roles. A fun fright night flick.

It was better than I was expecting, but that isn't saying too much. It has a few good scares, but it's biggest downfall is some of the acting. Most are alright, but a couple of them really stink.

Every other month or so I feel the urge to watch some B or C grade horror film. Probably a hold over from my formative teenage years. Usually they stay within pretty defined borders: demon/devil, vampire, or werewolf. This time I picked up a slasher flick that had caught my eye on the shelves at Wal-Mart (of all places) so I went and rented it.

Classic slasher film: group of teens, remote location, dark woods, sexual shenanagins, blah, blah.

American students stumble onto a hundreds of year old family of inbred cannibals in the back woods/moors of Ireland. Starts with a classic BF/GF camping killing and then nothing for ages. Then everyone dies in about 5 minutes.

OK, I exaggerate, but the pacing was off enough that it felt that way.

Hows it fall? Run of the mill. It did not break any new ground (unless you count the moment the cannibal tries to figure out what to do with the breast implant he just removed...), and the special affects were poor.

Now I want to give it a better rating, because not only was it reasonably well shot (above average for this type of film I'd say) but there were hints of good acting here. In particular Brandi-Ann Milbradt is not only beautiful but had flashes that showed potential. I will watch for her name in the future.

On another note, there was a fair amount of hype (well, I noticed it) that there were porn stars in this - Chasey Lain and Jenna Jameson if you are keeping score. Chasey got in, did her part (looked good doing it) and got out. Jenna pops in half way through and should have sat this one out. She looked old and... well used.
