The Story

A group of college kids travel to a small, mountain town called Madison County to interview the author of a tell-all book on the accounts of several grisly murders that happened there. But when the kids get to Madison County, the author is no where to be found and the towns people act like they haven’t seen him in years. They also say that the killer never existed and the murders never happened. However, when the kids start digging around to get their own answers, they find out that the stories may be more real than the townspeople are letting on!

My Thought ( SPOILER ALERT )

Written and Directed by Eric England, this movie falls short. I found it to be a little creepy but it didn’t go past that. The one kind of cool aspect of this movie is that there are no night scenes whatsoever. I thought that the killers mask was pretty eerie being a sewed on pigs head. There were too many loop holes in this movie to make it work for me. *Here Comes a Spoiler* … The entire small town was aware of this killer and basically supported and delivered his victims. Unless the reasoning for that was prominently displayed in this movie, it could never work. So not only do we find absolutely no background, rhyme or why the killer is hacking up these poor victims but to give no explanation as to why the town assists is nonsensical. The kill scenes weren’t even that great. As one who enjoys a good splatter kill scene, this movie definitely failed to deliver. I was hoping that Hopefully, this would be reminiscent of the old horror movies from back in the day but it kinda fell short.

This is just another “a bunch of kids going into the woods to be killed off” movie.    Blaa
