Product Description


It’s the fall of 1969, and winds of change are blowing across America. But on a remote family farm in the hills of Virginia, a storm of evil has been brewing for years. Now for a group of young people hitchhiking to a rally in Washington DC, a detour to the nightmare homestead of the Staunton’s will rip apart their young lives forever. A grisly secret is waiting. The raw terror is growing. And the clan’s brutal harvest is about to begin. Kathy Lamkin (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Kiko Ellsworth (“Dexter”), Cooper Huckabee (The Funhouse), Cristen Coppen and David Rountree star in this extreme shocker from Pittsburgh filmmaker Cameron Romero – son of legendary Night Of The Living Dead director George A. Romero – that unleashes a new generation of graphic horror.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the (fake) hype!!! September 30, 2009
Format:DVD
I am going to assume that the reviewers are family or friends. If not, they need to see more horror films.

I'll just give you the lowdown in a few points.

Story-Several young people are walking through Virginia in 1969 and meet up with a crazy family. There is a little more to the story but that is the setup. Wow, original!

Acting-It wasn't completely horrible since they mostly talked for the first hour.

Gore-Nothing happened for the first hour and then there were maybe two decent scenes, but nothing you haven't seen if you've watched any torture-porn type movies in the last 5 years.

Scare factor-Zero! I don't know what else to say. There was no tension whatsoever. I swear that there was more tension and suspense in a Disney movie. I am not kidding!!

There is more to complain about but I'll just leave it that Cameron Romero should stay away from making movies and leave it to his father. I haven't liked all of George Romero's films but he knows what he's doing.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a huge disappointment October 25, 2009
Format:DVD
Just finished watching this movie, as a matter of fact the credits are still rolling, and I must say I have not seen such bad acting and horrible plot in some time. I was so excited to see it after all the hype I read about it, and being such a fan of camerons father, I thought how could I go wrong. Well was I duped. I wonder if the vidoe store will give me my []back. The amazing thing is that 6 veral young adults cant fight there way away from an elderly woman in a wheelchair, an obese woman who cant take 10 steps without running out of breath, and her half wit son. Seriously, how stupid do they think we are. My Recomendation..... Dont waste your time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Farmhouse Freaks, Slasher April 26, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I guess it's not hard to please me because I like this movie.
Yes we have seen films of this nature before but I especially love this sub genre which includes movies such as The hills have Eyes,Texas Chainsaw massacre,Timber falls and Backwoods just to name a few and I'm not saying this is as good as Hills,Chainsaw or Timber falls but it still works in my opinion.Any movie in which the freaks in question skin their victims then throw the remains to the pigs is good in my book.
The characters were fun and campy ,the acting not bad and the story I found enjoyable as well.
The gore was done with old fashioned special effects,no CGI.
I love the old school way of doing gore.This gore was done very well for the budget and I have actually watched it three times and am buying the Blu ray even though I have the DVD..It's set in 1969 and it works as long as your not looking for every little detail or flaw.
I think it's a nice addition to the hillbillies from hell Genre.This rating system I have always found to be a bit odd because 4 out of 5 stars seems like a 9 out of a 10,I'm not saying that.An Amazon 4 means you liked it,I liked it therefore I gave it a 4..On a 1-10 I would give it a 6

4.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad... February 21, 2010
By rebis
Format:DVD
Kind of a 70's throwback, and of course it is pretty well a texas chainsaw rip-off,
but really a decent flick, especially considering the garbage that passes for horror at
your local cinema. It is worth a watch, and like I said, nothing ground breaking here,
just a decent horror flick for a saturday nite...

2.0 out of 5 stars Unoriginal and poorly edited derivative gore nonsense!! September 27, 2009
By pete
Format:DVD
Every cliche you associate with the Crazy Redneck Slasher genre is here in this movie. The sexed-up hitchikers, the broken down truck, the mentally challenged son, the meat hooks and the dirt-poor overbearing extended family who just might be having you for dinner if you dont stop running round in circles. I personally have seen all this before and better told. Because the movie was so obvious I kind of wondered why Cameron Romero bothered? Its tired and jaded and didnt get a cinema release in the UK. Also there are huge plot holes and inconsistencies. I would say avoid!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A VERY SATISFYING MOVIE FOR 'CHAINSAW MASSACRE' FANS! October 9, 2009
Format:DVD
Somebody FINALLY got it right! I've been watching low-budget flicks for many years looking for something that could ever come close to the eerie feeling I got when first watching 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', and although there have been some decent attempts along the way there have been MANY MORE awful ones, so it's nice to finally be able to say that 'Staunton Hill'-fits-the-bill! This is one creepy and disturbing flick! It's VERY realistic and never strays into unbelievable territory, building up slowly but steadily its sense of impending dread (much like the original 'Chainsaw') then unleashes its brutality in a quick and violent fashion that is grim, relentless and highly unpredictable! Seriously this movie was quite satisfying to behold! I have a very high standard for giving movies 5 stars (which is reserved only for the classics) but I want to give this one 4 1/2 stars because it's just a notch under classic! I must admit that I was almost going to pass this one up, thinking that Cameron Romero was just hitching a ride into movie making from his famous dad but horror fans should take note of the new Romero's talents! Mark my words, Cameron Romero will ALSO be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years! I'll certainly be looking forward to anything else he will be directing!

3.0 out of 5 stars Kathy Lamkin Steals Movie June 21, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Everyone looked so familiar in this. If you are an avid horror movie fan you should feel at home watching this one. It is a Chainsaw Massacre rip off, better done than most. Te film takes place in 1969 as the proverbial young adults wind up in rural America.

The Staunton family was portrayed great. Kathy Lamkin as the head of the clan was superb. The 6 college kids left much to be desired. It wasn't that their acting was bad, it was just that the writer forgot to give them interesting character. I guess the wheel chair guy had already been done. If you like watching bloody women getting tied down and having their clothes removed to their undergarments, this one delivers.
