It's sad that I refer to this as 'early' Eli Roth; since he's fairly young and not really known as a good director, but more so as a gory visionary (if that's the proper word).
One reason why I like this movie is because it is campy and was intended to be campy. Fun story, fun drama between the characters and and overabundance of gore. Usually, I'm not a big gore fan; I figure..what's the point? If I want gore I'll put a whole bunch of beef in a blender and watch that spin around for a bit.
I agree with both reviews...take caution before watching and just plan to be enjoyable entertained. I imagine this movie as a fun flick to watch with an open-minded group of friends when you're all just relaxing with some drinks and want to laugh and go "ewww".
Best part in the whole mov...
