What a strange flick! Apparently this is based upon a screenplay that sounds a heck of a lot better than the movie ended up being. It's about a strange young boy who is made fun of and sort of lives in his own little world because he's autistic. His Teddy talks to him and tells him how to be a weird little pervert and to feed troglodytes that live in a gigantic pit. At first he has to figure out what they eat, but when he finds out it's flesh they crave he starts to trick people into falling into the pit. The screenplay from what I've read has this story being a case of everything in his head, but unfortunately the movie doesn't follow suit. Although easy to watch and strangely entertaining little is explained, little blood happens but there are a few boobs. Quite a weird one that doesn't need to be seen but if you do you'll likely not forget it.
