short

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Belle's (Devan Liljedahl) car breaks down, and she doesn't have any cellphone reception - but fortunately for her, she's in a residential area, and a local, Nancy (Gretchen Krull) offers her to use her landline. And after Belle has called a tow truck, she's even invited to have dinner with Nancy and her husband Oliver (Kev Clinsc) - to then be shocked by what they're serving: Human hand roast. But before she can do anything, she passes out, and it turns out her wine was drugged - apparently she's supposed to be their next roast. Before Nancy and Oliver can do anything much to her though, they're interrupted by the tow truck driver Randy (Ted Wulfers) looking for Belle. And while they take care of him, Belle comes to her sensed enough to at least try to make an escape - but of course, trying isn't necessarily succeeding ...

 

One can't help but at least somehow like The Good Samaritans for its macabre storyline and healthy helping of black humour - but that's unfortunately as far as it goes, as the film is rather blandly shot and directed, the constant attempt to fake grindhouse looks is rather annoying after a short while, and the acting - is actually quite ok but lacks panache to really bring this one over the finish line as a winner.
