The female lead has amnesia and wakes up in a "dead box" as she calls it (normal people would say coffin but whatever) and all the gory kills and men racing to protect her start to pile up. And when I say that EVERY guy she meets try to protect her.... I mean it. They ALL go above and beyond just to die for this generic broad with huge boobs. The serial killer in this movie is not scary, clever or interesting in any sense. We don't even know his motivation to kill. He wears this dumb a** chrome skull mask that ALWAYS seems to fall off! Get a better mask that fits you moron!
And the ending, don't get me started. ***SPOILER ALERT*** We never see the killers face, get a clue on who he is nor do we find out who this stupid big breasted girl is. Dumb to the 100th degree! Just stupid. This whole movie is stupid!!! Don't watch it. Save that hour and a half of your life. I'd rather get a root canal without anesthesia than watch this piece of crap ever again!!!
While gruesome and gut-wrenching, the film does have a lot of the hallmarks necessary for the genre. Darkness, lonely country roads, a seemingly unstopped shape, and even a girl waking up in a coffin! It has levity and gore galore, but the gore is artfully done. By no means think the camera cuts away but instead the special effects are SO over the top they become watchable in their just-a-tad-absurd charm.
It also should be noted there is an overall theme of Class Warfare. Several of the classics rely on Virtue Judgment and Revenge to strengthen the plot (Jason tends to kill the promiscuous) here the only reason many are killed is they got in the way. However, the killer, 'ChromeSkull', can represent fears of the 1%. He dresses sharp and drives a nice car...silly as these may sound here, in context they work well. If you enjoyed The Purge, this (and it's sequel especially) are worth a viewing.
Well worth it! Especially if you're familiar with both staples of the Slasher genre (such as Friday the 13th and The Burning) and the New-Class (such as Hatchet and Behind the Mask; The Rise of Leslie Vernon).
