Inbred

PLOT (spoiler alert!!!):

Four young offenders and their care workers spend a weekend in the remote Yorkshire village of Mortlake, which prides on keeping itself to itself. A minor incident with locals rapidly escalates into a blood-soaked, deliriously warped nightmare. All four of the young offenders and two of the careworkers are killed in very gruesome ways throughout the movie.

REVIEW:

My patience is running thin for films that have trailers which portray one tone, but end up being something totally different. Inbred has a trailer that showed it to be a bit more of a comedy when, in reality, it was nothing more than second-rate horror flick. Is it worth watching, though?

What is this about?

Four juvenile delinquents and their case workers visit a remote village for the weekend, but they quickly realize they’ve made a deadly mistake. An incident with the locals rapidly escalates into a blood-soaked, deliriously warped nightmare.

What did I like?

Girl power. There isn’t much to like about this film, and truthfully, I’m not going to waste much time on writing a review for this mess. Having said that, the women in this film were the highlight. In a film dealing with redneck (or whatever the British equivalent is) inbred mass murderers, you’d imagine that the first thing on their minds would be raping the women. That never happens and, as a matter of fact, the two females in this film are actually quite strong characters, with one ending up as the last survivor.

What didn’t I like?

Blackface. One of the most offensive forms of comedy was the technique of blackface, at least it was, and still is, here in the US. Perhaps it wasn’t as big of a deal over in the UK, perhaps. That is still no excuse for this guy to put on blackface makeup. Making matters worse, his application of said makeup makes no sense. It is just random that he decides to put it on, and keep it on for the duration of the film.

Disturbing. I’m no fan of horror. It just isn’t my thing, excluding the classic monster movies and such. I was already against watching this film, but seeing the way these murders happen, especially the one with the horse, I felt very uncomfortable. It raises the questions, what kind of person makes a film like this and what kind of person enjoys watching these flicks. I got the same bad feeling that I did when I watched I Spit on Your Grave.

Inbreeding. Our antagonists happen to roll into a town full of freaks, as you would expect to happen in a film of this nature. However, the freaks happen to be inbreds who apparently kill people for fun. The killing people for fun, surprisingly, is the part that makes sense. The inbreeding, though, was never explained, if that is indeed why they were freaks. I’m just inferring from the title. Given the “impressive” (note the sarcasm) writing that was put into this film, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if they just stuck a title on the poster because it seemed to fit.

Intro. Maybe I missed something, but the intro, which turned out to be the best part of the film, didn’t seem to gel with the rest of the picture. I thought perhaps it would have had something to do with the making of the inbreeds, but it didn’t. All it did was to serve as a bloody introduction and precursor to the “treat” of a film we were in for.

So, the power apparently went out in half the city this evening, making me having to start this horrible thing over again…ugh!!!! Ok, let me not waste any more time on Inbred and get to the final verdict. As I said initially, this is a film that was advertised as a horror comedy, but there was little to no comedy and the horror was in how bad this flick ended up being. It seemed as if this flick existed only to make people squeamish and show lots of gore. I do not recommend this! As a matter of fact, you are best served avoiding this like the plague!!!
