Eighteen years after his unexplained departure, Cornelius Rawlings (writer and director Michael Tully) returns to his family's Tennessee farm to find his parents dead, but little else different. His brother Amos (Onur Tukel) works on grotesque expressionist paintings about football, while repressed neat- and Jesus-freak Ezra (Robert Longstreet, The Oregonian) tends to housekeeping religiously. Cornelius, an unlikely athletic savant, hustles high schoolers in town to support his huffing habit. When a toilet overflows and a familiar-looking plumber appears with his very beautiful, very young wife, the mystery of why Cornelius left starts to unravel. Blackly comic, touchingly human, visually striking, genuinely unsettling - this genre-bending, tonally unique film is unlike anything you've ever seen before.

If they failed to pay the exorcist do they get repossessed?
The characters are "Scott Pilgrim" quirky, but clearly they have far deeper and darker issues. You want to know about their past which has shaped their present. The art show was totally bizarre. The movie was shot cheaply on 16MM for effect. This is a film for extreme indy lovers. Characters were well played.
F-bomb, only drawn nudity and sex...and rather poorly.
The art was genius in a sick kind of way.
The story focuses on 4 brothers who all have serious issues that slowly unfold as the film progresses.
One of the brothers returns after being gone for fifteen years and is welcomed back like it had only been a time span of six month or so.
I don't want to reveal much but it was billed as a Horror film ,I would not say it was in any kind of Horror Sub Genre but a mystery,Psychological drama with just enough Black comedy thrown in to keep it balanced. Listen very carefully to some of the dialogue and your jaw will drop plus there are a couple of scenes that are jaw dropping as well.
I was sucked in and even though it was quite slow paced I didn't even want to stop it for a bathroom break afraid I was going to miss the big payoff.
By the end you pretty much figure out what is and what isn't and the way they slowly slipped in pieces of the puzzle was subtly genius.
Cornelius is a man of few words, who hustles people in pick up sports to finance his malt liquor and gasoline addictions. Ezra (Longstreet) is your typical queen who likes to wear dresses and pretend to be Susan Brady; he acts like a mother, maintaining the house and putting food on the table. Amos (Tukel) is the lazy artist brother; he draws violent sexual artwork, full of bleeding limbs and penises that reflects on his own damaged psyche. He also harbors an attraction to his brother. Wilbur is the big retarded guy, with the mind of a child. He likes to feed stray kittens but occasionally says profound things.
Without spoiling the plot I must say this movie is a work of genius. It is full of sweaty, rural south dirtiness; with the poorness,incest,huffing,fire and brimstone, demons, etc....This movie is full of three legged dogs with fleas. Either you will get it or you won't. The jokes aren't spoonfed, and the symbolism isn't either. It is extremely funny yet poignant at the same time. This one completely flew under the radar, you have to watch it before you die.
