For 10 years, the Jones-house
has been empty, but now three teens break in to dress it up as a location
for a party. All three are brutally killed, and their bodies are hidden -
and since this party was supposed to be an illegal rave, nobdy has any
idea where these kids have gotten to.
Maybe I should have told you
before, but there is a catch concerning the Jones-house - young Derek
Jones is still roaming the property. Now that wouldn't be too bad, hadn't
he been brought up by his dad in the belief that it was his duty to kill
all the tresspassers onto the family property. Dad killed 3 policemen
fulfilling this duty and ultiately got killed himself, but little Derek
has been in hiding ever since, watching the Jones property like a hawk.
Since it has been 10 years that
daddy got killed and young Derek has gone into hiding, it's no surprise
that the property has been sold eventually, and now the new buyers arrive
to work on the house - ony to split up, find the dead teens by and by, and
to be brutally murdered by Derek.
Looking for all the missing
persons, the local Sheriff (John Birmingham) got a tip that they might be
at the Jones-house, so he pays a visit to the place along with his wife,
several relatives of whom are among the missing. Sheriff and wife do find
out what has happened to those reported missing, but the killer is still
on the loose, and ... ouch!
A film that takes a trip down
memory lane, as it looks and feels exacty like one of these obscure
drive-in- or grindhouse flicks from the 1970's - there's everything there
from the washed-out colours to the choppy editing (back in the days
usually done by the exhibitors to repair broken films) to the crude gore
effects to the inconsistencies in sound coupled with an interesting
musical score, only that everything is done intentionally here. Add to
this a healthy disregard for the slasher formula (even though technically
this film is a slasher flick) and you have got a perfect hommage to these
films of old, quite simply a fun piece of nostalgia ...
