Editorial Reviews

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 Stauntons 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.

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.

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.

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

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!!

This movie is bad. Not in a "so bad it's campy" way and not in a "so bad it's disgusting" way. Staunton Hill is an amateurish mess from a director who is obviously learning his way around camera, plot, and actors. And all of that is quite visible on screen.

Let's start with the plot. Hitchhikers in the 70s stumble their way onto a cannibalistic family. We know that it's the 70s because the fact is ham-fistedly made clear from the pick in the African-American guy's hair (Kiko Ellsworth as Boone) to footage of the race riots. The fact that it's the 70s has almost no bearing whatsoever on the plot other than to remove the convenient issue of cell phones. It does have one upside; the footage has the grainy feel of a 70s film.

SPOILER HILL: There's a subplot about attempting to graft limbs onto a dying girl. It takes place on an entirely different set, complete with an attractive assistant who never shows up elsewhere in the film. The connection between this scene and the rest of the movie is Quintin (Charlie Bodin), a failed medical student who is conducting some unorthodox surgery - surgery we can only assume will save the dying girl that we know nothing about.

Quintin lures our unsuspecting victims to their doom with a friendly demeanor and an offer of a ride. Romero doesn't seem to understand foreshadowing, because he makes it very clear that Quintin is actually part of the crazy family within the first ten minutes. By the time it's revealed that Quintin is actually the mastermind of the operation, Romero intercuts the revelatory scene with every clue from the first half of the movie.
