My Thoughts:

This is the first time I watched this movie in quite a while. This is a bit of a weird movie, I grant you... but it is one that I enjoyed quite a bit. The couple in this movie is so over the top it isn't even funny. But it is entertaining to say the least. I really liked the kid that played the 13yr old boy nicknamed Fool that takes on this strange and sadistic couple to save his family... and then going back to save the other kids he met that the couple has trapped in the house. This is not what I would call a gory movie... but some of the things seen here is a bit on the bloody side. Not to mention things a little hard to look at... like "Daddy" in full leather fetish gear trying to hunt down Fool. Over-all it is a movie I enjoyed quite a bit. Glad I finally got around to watching it again.

This blu-ray release makes for a nice upgrade... especially considering there was no extras what so ever on the DVD release.

My Thoughts:

Not that I am really surprised, But this one had trouble keeping my attention. Story is lacking... I really didn't care about any of the characters... and some of the film was so dark I couldn't make out what was going on. The one thing it has going for it is that it is a short film. The quality of the DVD is lacking as well. Felt like I was watching a cheap VHS tape.
