For a feature debut, co-writer/director Alex Chandon seems to be trying to accomplish too much... As seen here, the result is a confused and bloody mess.
Inbredhad such fun with the kills, that the film practically rolls around in all of that blood itself.
One leaves the cinema with one's brain in pieces.
Both the comedy and horror rake over old ground.
Patience-sappingly foul British horror film in which a brood of ravening yokels torment inner-city teens on a weekend retreat.
Director Alex Chandon clearly has no truck with the PC-brigade with this gorily offensive horror that revels in a mean streak as wide as the Humber yet is lifted by a sense of humour as keen as a Sheffield blade.
Daft, disturbing and defective but thankfully, it doesn't take itself too seriously.
Beginning with an Emily Booth cameo and heading swiftly downhill from there ...
The row behind me had the night of their lives. They roared with laughter. They clapped. They shouted "get in!", as characters were brutalised. This, however, was the row reserved for the cast and their friends.
It is, alas, stuck down the very same 'dirty hole' of the British horror market where the likes of Lesbian Vampire Killers and Evil Aliens reside, desperate to pump their captive audience full of all the shit it can take and more.
A gorier, less entertaining version of Royston Vasey.
Severence meets The Hills Have Eyes in this extremely gory and very un-politically correct horror film concerning a group of troubled teens and their two counsellors who take a trip into a hick village somewhere in Yorkshire to do some vague maintenance/community projects, and find themselves in a community of very odd looking and strangely behaved people, who inevitably turn violent. As with something like the Final Destination films, the dubious pleasure of this film is in the variously gross/ingenious/stupid deaths (which here include sexual assault by vegetable and death-by-proxy of a ferret). The pastiche aspects are less successful although there occasionally some funny lines (which tend to be prior to the bloodshed), but it's the gore-effects that mark the film out.
