TRIPLE FEATURE TIME: torture porn, creature feature comedy, and backwoods slasher

This trio from 2006-2007 gives us a low budget yet hardcore gore porn experience, some cheesy SyFy slime creature fun, and a crazy backwoods family terrorizing kids at a cabin in the woods. These are probably not movies you’d seek … Continue reading
