1. The idea for this movie is pretty interesting, but it doesn’t play out quite as well as I hoped.
2. It’s about a family that stays close by performing cannibalistic rituals.
3. The movie starts out with the death of the father. Then the eldest son, Alfredo, decides he must take over as head of the household. He plans on proving his worth by finding the next human to bring home to eat.
4. The bulk of movie follows the escapades of Alfredo and his brother trying to capture various people to kill. They visit homeless kids, prostitutes, and gay bars. But their quest doesn’t work out quite as well as they planned.
5. There are a couple of cops that are trying to figure out who the family is, and catch them, so that they can be famous.
6. The family is so weird that it’s hard to really relate to anyone in the film. You watch the movie, but you don’t really feel it.
7. The biggest problems in the movie are the uneven acting, and the fact that some parts don’t really make sense. Characters seem to know where to go without being told, and they don’t always seem to have a reason for doing things.
8. There are some pretty violent and gory scenes. It is a cannibal movie, after all. But it’s not as gory as you might think. It could have been much worse.
9. The moral of the story seems to be, if you are going to kill and eat someone, get it right the first time. And don’t ever swallow a whole finger.
Also, I give credit to the family members for a fairly good performance in portraying whatever it is that they were. However, the other acting roles had that "hired extras acting pool" feel to their performances.
The rest of the production crew - directing, filming, sets, etc. were OK adequate for this low budget horror endeavor.
A woman singing a sad song about social injustice as she begs for money on a subway train slips Alfredo a scrap of paper bearing the cryptic message: "You are alive", while the mother and daughter talk mysteriously about "the ritual" as if their activities were somehow capable of being justified as some form of sacrament.We are not alerted at 1st to the cannibalism of the family,they just are what they are,it is a given. Consumerism is commented on in the shopping mall where a man vomits black bile,dies and his body is unceremoniously dragged away and the liquid mopped away.The family live in a weird house full of clocks,but there is a pressing need to carry on as before. The boys prey on social outcast,gays,whores and poor children.Social exclusion is more a monstrosity than cannibalism. There is a fight among minorities to survive and be noticed.Read more ›

This movie is really dark. If you're a fan of happy or even campy films, this is not for you. This film is brutal and for some of us that's a good thing. Read morePublished on October 29, 2012 by Sir Jestro
