review by
Mike Haberfelner

Mark (Duncan Casey) has just been thrown out of his home by his own wife, and in his desperation he turns to Ian (Justin Marosa), a friend from his partying days, for a place to crash at Dumpling farm, the very location of many of the best parties from back when. Ian has changed though, he seems to have lost his sense of humour, is overly secretive about many of the goings-on at the farm, and doesn't prove to be a very pleasant landlord - but he lets Mark have a party at the farm - and as soon as Mark has met up with Stevie (Kitt Proudfoot), another friend from back when, and one who has never lost his heavy partying drive (and thus always carries the right drugs on him), the party's a go.

Ian arrives to the party fashionably late, and with a bunch of gorgeous ladies in tow, ladies who seem to really be into Mark, Stevie and friends and thus invite them to an afterparty on the premises - to then turn out to be a coven of man-eating witches (with Ian their leader), who are quick to kill and devour our group of heroes, all but Mark who missed the first attack rather by mistake, and who now takes powder. But the witches haven't forgotten about him and now leave no stone unturned to retrieve him - and the prospects for Mark seem grim ...


Now this is quite a piece of horror cinema: While the story might be rather basic, it's told in a fittingly trippy way so that it remains interesting from beginning to end, something only helped by great imagery, and of course rather cool locations to begin with. And add to that an atmosphere of unease that permeates the movie throughout, paired with a lack of predicatbility, and of course a relateable ensemble cast to carry all of that, and you've got pretty awesome genre entertainment.
