SynopsisIt s nice to have your friends for dinner... According to official statistics, more than 210,000 missing persons reports are filed every year. Some cases are never solved. Now six friends head off to a country estate for a weekend of bonding, bed hopping and home-cooked feasts. But their good times go very bad when they encounter a clan of slaughter-happy psychopaths with expert skills in butchery and a ravenous hunger for teen-meat pies. What follows is a brutal battle for survival, complete with shocking carnage, killer twists, and graphic reasons to avoid UK cuisine forever. It s THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE in the English countryside in this grisly debut from director Gregory Mandry that walks a knife s edge between tongue-in-cheek humor and teeth-in-flesh terror. Bring a strong stomach and a hearty appetite: British horror is back with a vengeance!

Roll opening credits. And you’ve got yourself some torture-porn. …Read More
