On their last road trip before they go to serve in the Vietnam War, two brothers and their girlfriends get into a car accident that calls the local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a horrifying experience where the teens are taken to the secluded Hewitt house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured and prepared for life and the havoc that he will soon release on the world.Â
The filming on this movie was done very well, the scares were properly timed and the jumps were placed very well.Â The editing was placed together very nicely and it flowed really good, I have to say there wasnâ€™t any part during this film that I ever looked at my watch wondering when it was going to end it simply left me wanting more.Â Jonathan Liebesman did a wonderful job putting this film together.
Receiving Three Skipped Beats on the Roger Moore movie scale, this film did what it promised it would do.Â It promised to deliver and it did just that, it delivered in a major way.Â I loved how this movie answered pretty much any and all questions that anyone can have about the Hewitt family and why and how they became the way they are.Â This one will definitely be seen again and it will definitely make itâ€™s way into my collection.Â As always be afraid be very afraid.
