  1. Far from a future cult classic, it turns out to be smarter and more diabolical than you could have guessed at the beginning.
  2. 40
    Whatever the cause, everyone involved takes this blend of slick Verhoeven sleaze and Deliverance-brand musk way too seriously.
  3. 40
    The film's poky pacing is a liability -- the setup takes an awfully long time.
  4. Reviewed by: Robert Koehler

    Tries to salvage its dopey premise with frantic final-reel plot contortions.
  5. Cheesy horror flick that feels like straight-to-video material.
  6. 25
    Director Uwe Boll and the actors provide scant reason to care in this crude '70s throwback.
  7. Always a welcome presence in any film, Howard, as a simple-minded hick, gives Blackwoods whatever humor and life it has.
  8. 20
    Boll uses a lot of quick cutting and blurry step-printing to goose things up, but dopey dialogue and sometimes inadequate performances kill the effect.
