I wasn't sure what to make of the name Tom Alan Smithee being given to a character (and a minor character, at that). As most B-movie buffs know, "Alan Smithee" is the name film directors use when they know they've made a real stinker and don't want their real names associated with the project.Read more ›
Haylie Duff gives a believable performance as one of the girls that go on a paintball excursion with a group of co workers for a workshop in leadership and team work. After they settle in for the night at there camp they are attacked and taken to a cult community and put in cages .The men are set to be slaughtered and the women to be bedded by the breeder.A huge ugly looking mutant who serves as stud service for the savage hillbilly cult that have made a home in a remote part of the "Backwoods"
Danny Nucci whom I love turns up in this indie slasher and his acting is always up to par playing a cocky jokester.
Deborah Van Valkenburg gives a chilling performance as the mother of the cult .You might remember her from her stint in the 80's sitcom "Too Close For Comfort"and she was also one of the prostitutes in The Devils Rejects.
I like this movie because it has all the elements I like in a slasher although it could have used more gore but that didn't
diminish my enjoyment of the film.The main thing I loved about it was that the captives don't remain helpless victims and just get tortured "although that can be fun too"..There is quite the battle for survival and some great avenging moments.
Is it original ? not exactly but the formula is still fun and one I as a slasher fan always enjoy.The one where people wander into the woods,run into some crazy backwoods clan with their own set of rules and morals and they're usually not conducive to the health of the trespasser.It's non stop action from beginning to end.
Finally, we have a decent reason for ppl being out in the woods instead of them just randomly deciding to go there or the usual running out of gas. And finally there's an actual legitimate story behind why the ppl are crazy in the first place. The group is a bunch of young business ppl who go on a paintball retreat for the weekend in what they think is some kind of National Park. The ppl that live in this area are still stuck in some kind of time warp where they believe the government is out to do them harm.
One of the guys walks around with a hat on that says FBI so the ppl that live there think that's who the group is. It's not long before they start their next day to do their paintball thing when they realize strange things happening around them. They soon realize something's not right and decide to leave. That's when everything starts happening.
However, the "backwoods" ppl aren't running around randomly trying to kill everybody just because they can. They don't want to harm the women. There's sort of a 'Mother Earth' figure who leads things and believes the women need to be part of their circle to breed. I won't say much more and give it all away but finally a good backwoods story that has meaning for the ppl being there and meaning for why they're being targets.
It's actually a really good movie, good acting, good storyline, and everything comes together when it should. I'm glad I added it to my collection.
