This is quite possibly the weakest slasher film I've ever seen.
J. Petersen
Typical slasher movie leaving you with a lot and I mean a lot of unanswered questions.
Katherine Jones
Don't watch this just because you think the pig mask guy looks cool.

Madison County is a fun little backwoods slasher..
Nothing new here but like I always say,that's ok with me. I like My Slashers with this familiar formula.
Some kids go to Madison County to write a school paper on a Local serial killer and they find AGAIN,you should never stop at a raggedy looking cafe or gas station in the boonies.
The violence was high in volume but the gore was pretty tame,lots of blood but not much in the special effects department.What they did do was done well and I would rather see fewer effects done well than lot's of over the top cheesy effects.
It had some scary moments and the killer was creepy and fun to watch,I'm just mad that the hottest guy got slashed first..Of course,that's all up to taste so it's no spoiler.
There's also a creepy old lady that will make quite an impression on the viewer.
There was one line that bothered me and seemed juvenile and trite.One guy asks his girlfriend about her plans to go to college and her reply was 'Don't Be gay'..WTF does that even mean???????????
Otherwise it kept my attention and I would like to see a sequel..

Very bad movie. The plot was pretty silly and I wasted money once again on a bad, bad movie. I would say that this is one of the worst movies I have seen in the past 10 years.

James and his friends set out to interview an author who claims that the people of Madison County have been hiding a serial killer in their midst, but unfortunately for them, it's true! Director Eric England has unwittingly unlocked the secret to destroying suspense in his new film MADISON COUNTY. Moody atmosphere and creeping terror need not apply in this boring, generic Slasher. Instead, the kills are committed by a villain who literally walks up and stabs his victims in broad daylight, a villain who doesn't even give the audience the slightest bit of satisfaction by ripping off a few heads or tearing out his victims' throats. MADISON COUNTY is completely uninventive in every way, and England makes no attempt to hide the numerous genre influences that helped to shape the film. Horror fans will easily pick out the direct visual and audio references to THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, MOTEL HELL, THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, and many more. As if things were not bad enough, MADISON COUNTY is nauseating to watch thanks to the constantly-shaking camera. Not even the mediocre acting from the cookie cutter characters can save the film from falling into the sea of forgettable Slashers.

Interesting movie....Too much back-story hinted at but not explained. This seems like a good first movie, but there are no hints as to why the "bad guy" wears a pig head, how this whole thing got the tacit support of the town, etc.

I decided to watch this on Netflix Streaming (available as of 11/17/12) and I was pleasantly surprised. Madison County follows a group of young college students as they travel to Madison County to interview the author of a book; that book tells of 33 grisly murders committed by local psychopath Damien. Madison County is a decent slasher flick.

Madison County's story really isn't anything special; it has your typical slasher clichés and characters. The characters also continue to follow the traditional horror format, as in, they continue to make bad decisions; somehow, every single character ends up foolishly splitting up in an area that may have a serial killer and immediately after they were threatened at knife point at the diner. However, Damien's character/costume design is creepy and unique. Damien runs around in a pig head, and his scenes are thrilling and intense; and his kills are brutal and violent, with mostly stabbings occurring. Damien has the potential of becoming a horror icon with a little more effort. Unfortunately, Damien's screen time is mostly limited to the second half of the film. With this, the film sends a Wrong Turn/Texas Chainsaw Massacre vibe to the audience, which is good. The music was good, and the acting was decent (for an independent horror film, at least). The ending was little unfulfilling (I'm guessing this was purposely done for potential sequels), yet chilling.

Madison County, is a decent slasher flick; it suffers from flaws a lot of modern horror films suffer from, but the sinister villain helps the film a bit. I recommend streaming or renting before purchasing, unless your a big fan of slashers.

Madison County has strong violence and gore, and some nudity. (no sex)

The trailer for this thing made it look like it might be good but the 'movie' itself is utterly boring and AWFUL (not even in a bad 'B-movie' sort of way). It takes over 45 minutes before anything happens and when it does it's such a letdown because you realize these people are basically insulting your intelligence! EVERY kill scene (there's maybe 5 at the most) are people getting stabbed (with the tired old machete in the gut trick) or hit over the head! Utterly BORING kill scenes, boring dialog, 'chase scenes' that look like a backyard amateur video on YouTube, complete with utterly STUPID scenes like a girl hiding behind a tree that's thinner than she is but the killer doesn't notice her even though he's looking right at her! These 'movie makers' weren't even trying. It seems all they concentrated on was tricking people with a promising trailer and the 'movie' itself was cobbled together as an afterthought. Don't watch this just because you think the pig mask guy looks cool. He isn't. He's barely in the movie and when he is he's terribly disappointing. You have been warned. You'll regret the loss of time from your life if you watch this.
