DVD Review: MADNESS (2010)

Last night, I had the chance to watch the great horror film, MADNESS. This film is produced by STOCKHOLM SYNDROME FILMS and it is a true tragedy that more people don't know about this film!! Here is the basic plot from the film's website:

Friends Jenna and Tara are on their way to a cheer leading contest. At a gas station, they decide to help two guys, Chad and Oliver, who are having problems with their car. What they don't know is that they are being watched by a group of mad men. Their only intention is to hunt them down and kill them for all sorts of sadistic pleasure. After being captured and locked up, survival is the only thing that matters, but just how far are they willing to go?

I am so glad I watched this movie, I just wish I would have watched it sooner! Backwoods hillbillies are really scary to me, and this movie as plenty of them! Fans of "crazy killer family" movies such as WRONG TURN and revenge films such as "I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE" will truly love MADNESS! I was a little concerned at first about the acting in the film, as it started out sorta dry, but it actually got better as the movie went on. In fact, there were some scenes where the actors were portraying sheer terror so well, it almost made me uneasy and I could really believe they were in that situation.
Gore fans will not be disappointed either, as there are plenty of scenes of great kills and lots of the flowing red stuff!! The make up and effects in this film are superb for a lower budget movie of this sort. The movie has a bit of everything, including some great chase scenes through the woods, one of which results in a great knife/axe fight!
I can't say enough about this film, it is one you should definitely check out soon!!
ALSO..check back soon, as the fine folks at Stockholm Syndrome Films have supplied me with 2 brand new DVD copies of MADNESS to give out to the readers of HAYES HUDSON'S HOUSE OF HORROR!! Check back after our current contest, for your chance to win one of 2 copies of MADNESS!!
