Editorial Reviews

Based on true events, Carver tells the real life tale of five friends on a short camping trip in the mountain town of Halcyon Ridge who take a small detour to an abandonded stockyard owned by the Carver family. They fumble onto a horror film they think is only a movie. As they explore their eerie surroundings, they discover the truth behind the film and the Craver family. They begin to open doors that should have ever been opened. Soon it becomes a matter of life imitating art and art imitating death. Witness one of the most terrifying killing sprees ever to splash on screen. As you scream you wonder what the carvers can possibly do next.

*A BUTCHER IS BORN! See why audiences everywhere cringe when they hear the word CARVER! *In the vein of Hostel, Saw and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

*Audiences are already buzzing about THE SCENE from Carver!

4.0 out of 5 stars This was gory!!! March 5, 2008
If you are a fan of horror movies, esp movies like Hostel, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, would enjoy this. There are several scenes that made me drop my jaw and turn away. And for the men, the outhouse scene is one of the worst things I ever saw! I cringed and I am not even a man. Very interesting flick. Not for the squeamish.

5.0 out of 5 stars "What are you gonna do with those?!!!" December 8, 2008
By OddJay
As I read through the reviews, I was shocked at the number of people who disliked this film. It had me wondering, 'did we all watch the same film'. I realized that at least one person didn't. This person said it was about a pumpkin carver who wears a jack-o'-lantern (sorry, it was "jackal lantern") as a mask killing a bunch of teenagers. That is so far from the truth. There were no pumpkins involved in this film, nor anything else Halloweenish. Well, everyone has their own personal opinion. And now for mine: Actually, I thought this was one of the best slasher films I've ever seen. I'm not going to give a rundown of the plot. I'm just going to tell you what I loved about it. There was nothing about this film I didn't like. I loved the realistic gritty camera work, which almost made it seem like documentary footage. The music was also extremely eerie and disconcerting. There wasn't a lot of predictability here. In typical slasher films, the lead actress is always left alone after everyone else gets slaughtered, and must fight the killer single-handedly, and almost always succeeds. After which, she sometimes discovers a wounded survivor, and everyone's all smiles. Then something happens to make you jump (usually it's the killer popping up, not dead after all). This is not your typical slasher film. It's VERY brutal. It goes for your throat. It challenges you to not look away. I was very happily surprised by all this. I didn't know anything about this film before I watched it. There was an uncomfortable creepiness that could be felt from beginning to end. The choice of actors and the acting was top-notch, as was the direction and the cinematography. The killer was very scary, and very human (nothing supernatural here), and it was all filmed beautifully. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent enough torture flick March 5, 2008
The torture sub-genre of horror is all the rage, thanks to all the Saw's and Hostel's and the like that seem to pop up every month or two. What makes these films good as opposed to jsut exercises in brutality is whether or not they provide the scares that they should. Carver is one of these, and the fact that it pays some good homage to Texas Chainsaw Massacre in the process makes it worth checking out. The familiar storyline involves a group of young people on a road trip that make a wrong turn, and soon enough are hunted, tortured, and murdered by a sadistic, backwoods family. Yeah, Carver isn't original in the least, but it provides enough scares, shocks, and some blood curdling gore (including a scene involving a pair of pliers that will make you squirm) to satisfy fans of low budget horror. Carver isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but if torture horror is your thing, you could do a lot worse than what you get here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Little Gore Flick February 24, 2008
What would the world be like without over the top splatter fests? I personally don't want to find out. I'm always on the lookout for weird and disturbing slasher flicks and Carver did not disappoint. It's your basic kids in the wood getting hacked up by the locals, sure, but it's got a little something more to it. It's a bit smarter than the average micro-budget horror film. The gore FX were truly cringe-worthy, and there was some real suspense in moments. It also had a heightened style through most of it that you don't get in a lot of these straight to DVD jobs.

All that said... it's got its flaws. Plenty of them really, from a few technical aspects to some hit or miss acting. However, I think its good points were enough to outweigh most of these, and I quite enjoyed it overall. Definitely worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars Turkey in the straw.... May 5, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well, this one was a surpise. Except for the stupid song that keeps haunting me, I was really impressed with this movie. Some of the scenes will stay with you for days after seeing it. The plot was a little diferent than your typical "stranded teens" in a remote location and the Carver family puts on a good first outing. After finding out that this was filmed in Virginia I have been trying to find out where it was shot. I live in Richmond. So, if you like extreme gore with some of the torture aspects that's so popular these days then I THINK YOU WILL ENJOY THIS. As for a rent or buy it deal.... that's up to you. I purchased it from Amazon and have been very happy I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably gory & horrific!!!!!! December 17, 2007
This movie has the craziest scariest gore scene i've ever seen!!!! You can see it in full un-neutered glory on the Unrated edition Carver or semi-neutered Rated edition Carver! Either way it will make everyone, especially the male audience members, cringe. I'll say one thing pliers and genitals do not mix well together.

4.0 out of 5 stars CARVER ROCKS! February 25, 2008
While the plot for Carver might not be terribly original, I must say that this little gem surprised the hell out of me. It's incredibly well shot and generates a true sense of suspense and dread from beginning to end. The acting? Again, it surprised the hell out of me in a very good way. All performances were spot-on which is usally not this case in a low budget slasher film. In addition, the backwoods locations were just awesome and really added to the appeal. Crumbling outhouses, barns and even the woods themselves are used very smartly and effectively. The effects were definitely gruesome and well done. Don't believe the other review here that says this movie is only about the gore because it isn't. Any self-respecting horror fan should check this sucker out. And for the record, no, I am not the writer/director of this film nor do I know anyone associated with this film.

I'm not going to say this is 100% predictable and 100% unoriginal.

It's at least 150% predictable and 167% unoriginal.
