A serial killer uses a horror video rental to lure his next victim. What begins as a teen slasher transforms into a disturbing journey through the mind of Max Parry, a mild mannered wedding photographer with a taste for human flesh.

Horror Review

Director Dante Tomaselli merges two disturbing story lines into a visually arresting chiller. At the onset, a group of teens escapes from a drug rehab center, heading toward a supposed promise of salvation at the house of a psychopathic reverend Salo, Jr.  Leader of the pack, Luck, fueled by major hallucinogens, transports the gang to the reverend’s isolated house where a simultaneous second plot is evolving… Once there, a bizarre and disturbing series of events unfold as the teens discover that the reverend and his wife have enslaved their daughter through enforced drug addiction and psychic brainwashing. In this nightmarish universe, nothing is what it seems. The only salvation appears to be the guidance of her paternal grandfather Reverend Salo, Sr. But hope is quickly jeopardized when it is revealed that Salo, Sr’s comforting visitations are from beyond the grave. Shortly after the arrival of the rehab escapees, Luck shoots and kills Salo, Jr. and his wife. This eruption of bloody violence is a catalyst for the unleashing of dark forces including torture, a chamber of horrors, and murderous attacks by a demonic satanic goat and an army of zombies. This is a nightmarish universe where nothing is what it seems. The ambiguous ending is left open for interpretation with a guarantee of being intriguing and darkly nihilistic.
