Ten people are stranded, locked inside a bar in the middle of nowhere, with no phones or any way to reach the outside world; there is only one problem, actually four. AÂ family of monsters is waiting outside wanting in.Â They’re hungry and we are what they eat!Â WillÂ the groupÂ make it thru the night or will the hero and heroine save them and save the day by destroying the beasts that wish to simply have them for a FEAST.
TechnicallyÂ this movie was well done especially for being John Gulagerâ€™s first feature film.Â Â The filming was also done with a new interesting taste to it, for instance the bit part at the beginning of the movie that was filmed in 8mm that lead into a better film cut.Â The special effects on the monsters was done great for the budget they had to work with, it looked very realistic.Â The story fell together nicely as well, the only down side is that there was no explanation to the monsters and where they came from.
Receiving Three Skipped Beats on the Roger Moore movie scale, this film will definitely be making its way into my collection.Â I loved the experience that I had in watching this film; it was the Unrated DVD release at the MANN Theater in Hollywood,Â which came along with a wonderful Q & A afterwards, which went on forever, but in a good way.Â A number of the cast members joined John front and center to answer questions from fans.Â It was a great movie, funny, scary, gory everything you can want in a horror movie.Â As always be afraid, be very afraid.Â
