lright. I know everybody hates me for loving this film. Everybody I know hates this film. My dad hated it, my friends hated it, and all of my online aquaintances(SP?) hated it. But this is one of my all time favorite movies. It's the ultimate guilty pleasure, like reruns of Mama's Family and Ace Of Base. I love them, but hate to admit it("DON'T TURN AROUND!!!!!!").
Of course, if you truly knew me, you would know that I am the king of guilty pleasures. I don't want to name them all, since that would take too much of your time as well as mine. But my point is made. I should shut up.
The story is simple. Two couples drive away from the school prom. They run into the psychotic family somehow, and all of the kiddies die except for one girl.
Of course, this film does use humor to break up whatever terror is supposed to dominate it. There is no terror, but a lot of fun. Sure, nothing much is done besides running around and talking. My Wishmaster loving friend says it best, "All they did was f**king ran!"
What I believe people don't understand is that this film is supposed to be bad. It's a trashy version of the original-think Jerry Springer meets Leatherface. I believe the show would be called, "I'm a Cannibalistic Drag Queen Whose Family Doesn't Appreciate Me!"
My favorite aspect of the film? Definately Tonie Perensky's performance as Darla, the real estate agent girlfriend of Vilmer. I feel she is a great actress, and her character is a perfect vehicle for her. I hope that she will get a long lasting film career.
So, for this movie, I give it NO BEANS.
