Audra (Mikayla Gibson) is just your typical teen who's good at being
mouthy and who's returning for the weekend ... when she suddenly
disappears when she was only shopping for her mum (Amy Lindsay) - but
when mum wants to report her disappearance to the police, she's met with
deaf ears ... and out-of-town detective Gordon (Trae Ireland), who can at
least feel her frustration because he has a daughter himself. But being a
stranger to this parts - small town USA where the houses are often tens of
miles apart - his success rate is bound to be limited.
Now Audra has
been kidnapped by Adam (Jamie B. Cline) and Nate Cooper (Adam Dunnells),
who are under their mother's (Bunny Gibson) thumb to get themselves wives
who'll make them kids. Audra ought to be Adam's wife, and she has to
pretty much witness how Nate's wife (Nailya
Shakirova) is treated when she fails to fully obey - she's
pretty much dismembered by chainsaw.
Good thing then that Audra's not
only a smart-ass who knows how to talk back to her mum, but also smart
enough to play it by ear until the brother's are gone, and then manages to
overcome their mum, actually, and free their chained up brother Ethan
(Joey Bell) - he's gay, so mum didn't like him - but breaking free and
getting away when the next modest village is about 150 miles away are two
different things altogehter ...
Genre faves Bill Oberst jr and Suze
Lanier-Bramlett play relatives of the Cooper family.
is first and foremost a really nice shocker, as it is somehow based on the
slasher formula but really plays its own unlikely theme upon it, it does
provide one with plenty of well fleshed-out characters brought to life by
a very solid cast, and it has all the suspense, shocks, gore, scares, and
even laughs in all the right places to keep the audience entertained
throughout - in a word, rather awesome genre entertainment!
