Hoboken Hollow Reviews
It starts off with violence when a hitchhiker is hung (the movie is based on true events - horrible!). Hatefully violent and bloody, this film shows homeless people or hitchhikers being picked up under false pretenses of being offered a job on a ranch. In reality they are enslaved (this is in the 20th or 21st century I would guess), given very poor rooming shelters, fed poorly, worked desperately hard, treated like subhumans, beaten or shocked into submission and there is even a rather ugly woman who fully approves of the whole awful scene. The group who run the ranch are mostly men with the one woman taking part in their crimes against humanity.
Local law enforcement is of no help or protection to the captives. A horror film of horrific proportions, apparently the product of at least one sick imagination, this film shows a slave woman who is shocked then raped even as the ugly hearted woman looks on with a smile on her lips. It is a film like this that makes me happy that I never became an actor.
The only good thing about this film? The song "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" by Don Roberts which plays over the ending credits. 0/10
Do yourselves a favour. Get Wolf Creek instead.
If it wasn't a rental I would snap the disc!
( i put about as much effort into this review as the writer did into the film!)
I really can?t say a good word about it.
