I am a huge fan of Horror movies. I don’t know why, but I have always liked them. The more gruesome it gets the better I like them. Like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and all the Friday the 13th movies and Halloween movies. I even liked Nightmare on Elm Street. The chainsaw man, Jason, Michael Myers and Freddy never made me have nightmares, I suppose because in my mind I knew it was just in the movie and it wasn’t real.
So when this movie came in the mail a couple of days ago I decided OK, I’ll give it a shot. According to what I read about it they claimed it had some good gory scenes in it and it even had some humor in it.
To set the background up, we have a man, Carl Henry Jessup (Paul E. Respass) that lived in the deep isolation of the lonely backwoods. He was a grouchy old man that drank a lot and the only ones that could tolerate him was Rae Lynn (Theresa Holly), his half sister and another friend of his, Billy Wayne (Chris Shumway).
Now Carl seemed to be kind of close to his parent so when they suddenly died he finds himself yearning for their return so much that he makes a pact with a demon, Sam Bakoo (Allen East) by offering his soul in exchange for his parent’s return. He keeps their rotting corpses around in hopes that they will return, even though he had been warned that his bloodline had been cursed and that it wouldn’t be a wise thing to tangle with Bakoo. He doesn’t listen to the warning.
Carl has a temper when someone trespasses on his land. He likes keeping a supply of fresh meat so when he finds someone on his property he kills them and cuts them up. One day while Carl was out Rae Lynn discovers Carl’s secret and now she is forced to fight for her life with her half-brother. By then the demon is there to collect from Carl, but what happens then?
