I'm sure if you are anything like me and you've seen this movie you will never forget it. In fact even if you haven't seen this movie odds are that you know about the "squeal like a pig" scene, but how does it hold up as a movie? Well it starts out innocently enough, a group of four male friends get together for a weekend trip out in the wilderness. It starts out with beautiful scenery and some bonding before it turns into a nightmare. They meet up with rednecks which shall we say are not only dangerous but a little too friendly. It's disturbing because it seems real and it's acted so superbly. If you like disturbing films that are sure to haunt you then I insist on this one.
