A young man (Brandon Gadow) kills a guy (Dan Carbonaro) in self defense. He then panics, hides the body in the trunk of a car he steals, then drives around to his best friend (Rick Reger) so he gets him out of the jam. The friend is less than pleased, naturally, but helps him still, in sawing the body apart ... and hiding the evidence (i.e. the corpse) by eating it up, which he claims to be in line with some pagan ritual. Then though he sends our young man away in hopes to never see him again.

Our young man calls up his friend not half an hour later - this time he has killed his abusive dad (Kelsey), and the sawing and eating ritual begins anew ...

Weirdly enough, our young hero and his friend really get into eating people, so they soon go on a killing spree, killing at first random people in the streets, but eventually, our young hero actually picks up a girl (Leia Gadow) at a bar, makes love to her, then stabs her in the shower.

It's only when he ties up a maid in a motel room, prepares to kill her, and she pleads for her life that he realizes what an animal he has become. He refrains from shooting (and eating) her, instead blows away his own brains ...

 

A very raw piece of low budget horror cinema that ddoesn't waste too much time with pretense but goes straight to the jugular (even if the actual cannibalism only happens off-camera, presumably for budgetary reasons). Now granted, self-consciously raw low budget shockers of Grape Jelly's ilk fail more often than not - but first-time director Brandon Gadow proves himself to be versatile enough to provide his skeletal plot with quite a bit of atmosphere, he by and large refrains from showing something for mere shock value, and the whole thing is accompanied by a pretty decent musical score, too.

In all, a pretty cool flick, actually.
