This is a small underrated film that many people haven't heard of. What's good about this movie is that it actually has a decent story and interesting characters, unlike many other horror films you'll come across. Starts off when a crippled girl decides to take part in a beauty contest. As her and her family head home they encounter some trouble on the road and get towed back to a junk yard run by some strange rednecks. Turns out one of the rednecks planned the whole thing and wants to cure the cripple girl and make her his bride.

At first I thought the movie was somewhat similar to Texas Chainsaw Massacre, because of the whole redneck family-thing abducting people and such in the middle of nowhere, but it was really nothing like it. TCM is far more superior, but this is still a decent film on its own. The story is original compared to many other horror films. The acting was actually well performed and the directing wasn't too bad. I was hoping to see a lot of gore, but there really wasn't much. This movie is mainly story-driven, which makes it somewhat unique. Though it might be boring to some. I would have given the movie a higher rating, but since there wasn't as much action as I hoped, I had to settle for a 6-rating. It kept my interest, but I was hoping for a little bit more.

Underrated horror film. Story-driven movie, which might turn off some people, but for those who want to see a decent horror film with an interesting story, check this.
