Back in the day, Frank (Trae Ireland) and Jon (Jody Bardon) were the best of friends, but they somehow grew distant when they both had a relationship with the same woman, Marjorie (Eva Hamilton). Neither relationship lasted, and since then lots of water has gone down the river, so now when Marjorie invites them over to her hunting lodge for a few days in the woods, they don't even have a problem to carpool to get there. Sure, it's a little odd to meet up again after all these years, but not odder than most high scholl reunions and the like. And after a nice first night of warming up old stories, Frank and Jon set out to do a bit of hunting. But then Jon hears some weird voices and shoots Frank dead by mere accident. He rushes back to the lodge to tell Marjorie to get help, to find Frank very much alive. Thing is, Frank remembers Jon having shot him dead, and it's no wonder that the two men are getting into an argument, so much so that Marjorie storms off, above all else unable to make heads or tails of the two men's story. Ultimately, Frank and Jon return to the scene of the accident, to find Frank's dead body, and in a fit of rage, Frank kills Jon - which Jon of course survives. Upon that, the bodies just keep piling up, but neither men ever really dies, despite the many corpses covering the grounds. Eventually Marjorie returns, telling the men that every road she has tried to go to the next town only leads her back here, and she's shocked what has happened in the meantime (which by the way also includes Frank's arm being sawed off), but soon the three come to an understanding that they must find a way out. Problem is that each of them also has their own agenda that might pose a threat to the other two ...

 

Now of course, objectively speaking the premise of Sawed Off is a bit silly, and the fact that it's never properly explained away might alienate some people - but the yarn that's spun out of the rather simplistic set-up is pretty great, as it light-footedly blends visceral horror with very dark comedy while also making sure its very absurd story is still character based - and the characters themselves are well fleshed out and nicely portrayed by the three leads, while the direction combines humour with suspense and sees to it that the tension never drops below a certain level, making this very cool genre entertainment.
