Benny (Wes Bentley) and Nathan (Ryan Donowho) are brothers who live on the Anderson Ranch which boasts some Indian burial grounds. Benny has a friend , Delgado (Christian Slater) who stays there and manufactures drugs. Both Delgado and Benny made a powerful hallucinogen from the root of gypsum. Benny does things under the influence of the drug he doesn't remember, regrets and can't fix.

Nathan invites the anthropology class out to the ranch while a bunch of crazy stuff is going on. Soon they all drink the Gypsum tea and all hell breaks loose.
The movie has some humorous moments, but is far from a comedy.

F-bomb, sex, no nudity but a lot of bikini/bra and panties stuff, derogatory toward Christianity in the beach scene. 3 1/2 stars

This film had a great mix of original humor and horror. The party and action scenes were shot very well with realistic dialog and visual effects. Humor was filtered into different scenes to give the film audience some relief from the horror that was facing this group of college aged students. Entertaining and a good show for the college aged and above who are looking for some fun and chills.

This film was cool, funny and freaky. Slater and Wes Bently give whacky yet creepy performances that could make this a potential cult classic. When the action gets going, it doesn't stop. The beginning is pretty funny too! A solid blend of fun and scares.

I loved the mix of blood and humor here. It took a routine premise of kids in a cabin and had a lot of fun with it. But also had some interesting unique character developments that you don't normally find in a story like this.

"Grandmother Malloy I've come to beg for your roots. I promise to do you no harm. I need to borrow your magic for tonight." After an anthropology student decides to take a few of his classmates to a family ranch in order to do a mock ritual for extra credit they get more then they expect. His brother seeing this as a chance to get revenge for his family decides to make the ritual a real thing. So going in I was thinking this was going to be decent. While I was not totally wrong it could have been way better. The beginning was actually pretty entertaining and a little funny. The longer it went on though the more it started to drag and I was just interested enough to want to find out what happened. What started off as an interesting idea devolved into the kids in an abandoned area start getting killed off one by one type movie. While this is not a terrible movie this is still just OK. Overall, a fun and entertaining beginning gives way to a formulaic ending that isn't as fun. I give it a C+.

So bad, I wanted to turn it off within 10 minutes but then I wouldn't have the pleasure of ripping it a new one. From the description, I expected an indy psychological thriller; I encountered an unoriginal, typical teenage horror film that tried and failed miserably at being mysterious and atmospheric. I had grave misgivings before viewing when I saw it starred Christian Slater--not that he's a horrible actor but he appears in some of the cheesiest films. However, I gave the movie a chance because it also starred Stephen Dorff--he could do nothing to salvage this film. The movie ultimately failed because it never settled on what it wanted to be: "I Know What You Did Last Summer" or "The Serpent and the Rainbow". Unfortunately, it did not succeed at being close to either film, for better or worse.

Not to give anything away,but here are some plot/development elements that informed my negative reception of this movie: entirely too many characters and insignificant subplots, no defined protagonists or any characters that you cared about or identified with, mostly undeveloped stock characters, no overriding message or morale, mystic Native American rituals without any explanation of their significance to the movie, and an imaginary talking monkey sock puppet (I couldn't make this stuff up if I wanted to). This film was like watching a LSD-induced visual interpretation of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" without the talent and genius of Freddie Mercury to bring it all together. Definitely, a BIG thumbs down!
