Hillside Cannibals (2006)

"Starring":  Heather Conforto, Tom Nagel, Louis Graham

Homicidal Maniac: Cannibalistic Family

Run Time: 1:22:53
Quick Synopsis: Five teens go camping in the woods.  They soon find out that there is a crazy, inbred family.

Review:  Boy did the filmmakers of this movie have some balls.  Not only do they make an awful rip-off of the The Hills Have Eyes, they actually state that this is the true story that The Hills Have Eyes is based off of.  Really, this is a true story; if so, my whole outlook on the world has just changed.  Apparently, somewhere in the United States, there are people who live in the woods, that are cannibals, that communicate through grunts, know a little English, allow a small town sheriff to hang out with them, and appear to be a combination of cavemen and Native Americans.  That's sounds like it could happen.  This movie is as B as it gets.  At one point during the end of the movie, you can actually hear a random person talking in the background.  The acting overall is bad, but not bad enough to bring the viewers any enjoyment.  Honestly, the only entertainment I got from the movie was a game a made-up called: "Hills or Chainsaw".  Every scene I tried to figure out which movie they stole the idea from.  Some highlights of the game, using another person's skin as a face: Chainsaw, living in the hills of a desert: Hills, awful grunts sprinkled in with some English: no decent movie that has ever been made.  I guess if you are a fan of gore, there are some good kill scenes that may make the movie watchable, but all in all, this is a really awful horror movie.

Fun Fact:  Thomas Downey, who plays Mr. Pratt, appears to a master of finding roles in shitty movies that attempt to make money off of recent trends in the movies.  He was in a Dracula movie during the vampire craze, a Pirates movie during the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean and a werewolf movie during the recent werewolf phase.

Hidden Gem:  Director Leigh Scott plays the role of both David and Sawney Bean in the movie.
