Back when, Nova (Nikki Carlson) decided to take a hike through the Pennsylvanian forests to cleanse her soul after substance over-abuse ... only to several days later be found wandering around aimlessly babbling incomprehensible gibberish. Obviously she has been traumatized, but by what has never been found out. She has nightmares about a man with a human skin mask chasing her around with a chainsaw, but she can't tell if this actually has happened to her but is only her imagination running while when trying to connect the dots. So to exorcise her inner demons once and for all, Nova decides to go on another hike through the Pennsylvanian forests - and while she's pretty jumpy from the start, the first several days nothing happens apart from the occasional run-ins with harmless nutters and actually some really nice hikers. So over time she relaxes - not knowing of course that there are actually people killed on her trail, and have been for years. It's only when she runs across a guy in a gas mask wielding a sledgehammer that she realizes the seriousness of her situation. She manages to shake him in a system of caves, but loses her way in the process. So it seems like good luck that she stumbles upon a house in the middle of nowhere - but little does she know that it's inhabited by a deranged family (Adam Holmes, Joshua Reed, Dave Rupert) that has made it a sport to hunt, kill and devour hapless hikers ...


Now of course, this movie is somewhat reminiscent of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - even the title suggests as much - and it also takes cues from The Hills Have Eyes and (of all things) Tomb Raider. But all of this of course doesn't mean Guts on the Chainsaw, can't also be a pretty cool piece of backwoods horror in its own right - and indeed it is, a film that takes its time with character build-up, but interspersed with on first sight  unconnected murder scenes that build up suspense, to eventually unload itself with a pretty explosive third act that convinces both in the violence and excitement department, definitely goes beyond your typical playbook ending, and should thus satisfy any hard-boiled horror fan.
