Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.

Cast: Nancy Hendrickson, Deborah Luce, Triana Pierce
Standard Troma excrement. You have to hand it to the Kaufman’s, they can take superior ideas realized in far better movies and wear them down until all that is left is pointless cruelty, ugliness, and stupidity in its rawest form… all on a shoestring budget. 1/5
From the beginning fundamentals of The Troma Team, this film hails from inspirations from Deliverance, Texas Chainsaw and The Final Terror. It is not a complete gem, but the performances are decent...so it may be time for a remake? Or did "House of 1000 Corpses" already do it too good? Either way, Rose Ross rocked her role in this film.
Well it's a Troma film so don't expect high production values. But if you want to know more about their early stuff then you need to add this to the list. For what it's worth I liked it. You can see the obvious references to Texas, Hills Have Eyes etc. And the sight of little pink flamingos at one point in the yard wasn't lost on me.
For some reason, murder doesn’t bother me. But rape scenes do. Not one of the top 80s horror flux
Good old fashioned 80's Troma right there!
