A group of naive party-loving, horny (of course) teens are renting a cabin in a hillbilly area for the weekend. they get mashed up between locals and a deadly flesh-eating virus. It’s now a quest for surviving.

Well, what did I think? I loved all of the referances Eli Roth served us through the movie in dialogue and music. It still had some stupid characters (why are always friends travelling on a camp trip so fuckin’ lame, horny, weedloving and careless stereotypes? I’m so tired of it…). Well it started of as a standard and unoriginal slasher, but thank God it took a turn to the better the last 30 mins and so, when the roles of the characters also turned. Had a good time at the end, and found it rather amusing.

The disc had loads of fun extras including a “family friendly version”, good audio commentaries by Roth and the cast, short movies, “making of” and much more. Great package for the fans.
