I didn't have high hopes for this film because of some reviews that said the violence was mostly off screen and I though ,ok that means no budget for effects.
I was pleasantly surprised and totally enthralled in this backwoods slasher/basher flick. I say basher because a lot of the violence has more to do with bashing peoples faces in that slashing them up.
Some of the acting was really really great and some was not bad.
If you were to take Red State combine it with Deliverance and toss in a little Timber falls you would get something like this but this had it's own flavor and stood on it's own.
The violence is fast' hard and in your face, no holds barred and no one is off limits,It is very bloody and the effects are good old fashioned makeup effects and not CGI,Very realistic too I must add.The camera work and film quality were amazing for a low budget film, again I was totally impressed.
Two couples go into redneck territory and have to kill in self defense and from there it's a fight for survival as the men try and save the women and vice verse.
Throw in the overly religious father whom is certain anything his family does in blessed and done in the name of God and you have a recipe for a great genre piece.
