On the way to their holidays, lovers Eric (Armont Casale) and Shelly (Diana Quezada) take a pee break in the middle of nowhere ... and are attacked by a serialkiller, Purge (Nicholas J.Leinbach), who brutally kills Shelly, and is only stopped from doing the same to Eric by Caitlin (Linda Bella), the woman he was actually after ...

A year later: 18 year old Kiara (Bianca Lemaire) has just learned she has not been accepted into Harvard, which is a big blow to her because she's used only to the best. But her friend Ronan (Anton Troy) suggests a way for her to be accepted into Harvard after all, by writing a paper on serialkiller Purge (who has gone missing since his encounter with Eric, Shelly and Caitlin a year ago) fueled by some first-hand-experience - which basically consists of a visit to his home, a makeshift maze in an abandoned plant in the middle of nowhere. So Kiara and Ronan collect their friends, sarcastic Brit (Allison Ochmanek), good girl Kimberly (Meredith Laine), Ronan's best friend Maxx (Eric Lewis), and Eric's brother Juan (Teodorico Paul Sajor) to visit the place as sort of a last adventure together before they all seperate to go to different colleges all over the country ...

Eric has never come over the loss of his girlfriend he actually wanted to propose to when her life was cut short by Purge, and he partly blames Caitlin for it because it was her Purge meant to kill and not Shelly. Caitlin on the other hand is convinced Purge is still out there, and she wants to persuade Eric to help her track down and kill him - something that she only succeeds in when Eric learns where his brother has just gone to ...

Once at Purge's place, the others learn something a tad unsettling about Ronan, that he secretly admires Purge and especially the philosophy behind his killings, this being to eliminate all weakness from the face of the world by killing all who he considers weak, and this way create a new masterrace - but doesn't everyone have at least one weakness? Then evidence turns up that Ronan had planned to lure his friends here for quite some time ... and then out of nowhere, Purge strikes ...

Basically, Filth to Ashes, Flesh to Dust is a slasher movie that features many a genre mainstay, from its slightly farfetched premise to its clichéed cast of characters. But then, Filth to Ashes, Flesh to Dust is something more as well, as the story is intelligently set up, provides the killer with an interesting (if totally insane) motive for his crimes, the story arc often defies genre conventions, some of the clichéed characters show unexpected character development, and the film keeps who's going to survive a surprise until the very end (not often the case in slasher movies).

In all, a very pleasent surprise. Recommended.
