Editorial Reviews

Patrick and his friends should never have set foot on the Hardell family property. The stories are true, you see, and the Hardell s Willard, Kasper and Orry are not friendly towards unwelcome guests. And so after a dare gone badly wrong, Patrick and his friends are on the run for their lives, the gruesome trio hot on their trail and out for blood. A slasher in the classic mould, David Harris SAVAGE COUNTY is THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE meets HOSTEL - a bloody thrill ride of brutal kills and the desperate fight for survival.

"Savage County" is another in a long line of films highlighting the escapades of a family of backwoods psychos. I, for one, stay far away from isolated psychopaths--but movie teens seem to be inextricably drawn to their dangerous appeal. Beginning its life as a web mini-series, "Savage County" became popular enough with fans that this feature film was commissioned and created. Owing a debt to many stories that preceded it (most notably, Texas Chainsaw Massacre), this film may lack a bit of originality--but for audiences that appreciate the genre, the film still works on its own merits. The movie's greatest success is marrying the gritty feel of seventies exploitation films with very modern day sensibilities. It's unusual, in contemporary slasher films of this nature, to have characters so related to cell phones, texts, web broadcasting, etc...It is the realistic flavor of the characters that makes this all a bit more interesting.

The film begins with a terrifically lighthearted introduction to the major players. The cast of imperiled teenagers embody every high school stereotype imaginable--the star athlete, the misfit girl, the thug, the nerd, the academic, the popular girl. And before you know it, seven of them are headed out to a desolate lake for a day of relaxation. Never mind that this crew is so mismatched that they'd never hang out together--it's best not to give it too much thought. What better way to end such a glorious day? Why not prank the scary family of psychopaths? Turns out, this isn't as good an idea as it sounded and results in an accidental death. So far, so good. This movie boasts a likable and attractive cast. In many of these movies, you just hope the idiotic characters die in gruesome ways (Hostel!).

3.0 out of 5 stars TEXAS CHAINSAW LIGHT April 24, 2011
This is a Texas Chainsaw type movie. The psycho family consists of people we have seen before: a brute with a partial "leather face", a man with long gray hair- Rob Zombie type, a man who is "touched" in the head, and grandpa. They live out by themselves and torture people who come on their property. The local high school is a typical movie high school: no fat or ugly kids. There is a cool group of kids that hang out together, Mike who dates one of the girls and is the brother to another. He is 22. He supplies the kids with drugs and alcohol. This group of kids go up to the lake and then go to the creepy house where the psycho family lives. The movie attempts to quickly build character with opening case files and a party which films the kids and asks them what they want to do after college. It didn't work too well.

It now becomes a question of who will live and die. What is different is that this house does have cell phone reception! Swagger music has been updated. Plenty of young girls in chains being tortured. Lots of fake blood. Not as good dialouge as a Zombie film. No sex or nudity. Acting was par. 2 1/2 STARS.

A wonderfully conceived, written and directed slasher flick. It's suspenseful, ominous, frightening and ultimately cathartic. A well-crafted exemplar of the genre.
