Rogue River (2012/Lionsgate DVD)
C Sound: C- Extras: C Feature: C
Mara (Michelle Page) wanted to do was scatter her father's ashes in the
River, but after her car being towed by the police, a kind
couple seemed to offer her a place for the night. What was thought as kindness turns out to
complete horror, the couple is not what they seem, they have plans for her and
none of it involves her leaving?
So we get
a young beautiful girl on a journey and hits bad luck with not only the local
police but in to a psycho brother/sister couple. She is caught, bound and tortured, as each
time she tries to escape they torture her some more, slowly breaking her....
but the true horror is they want her to make a baby for them because they
can't. Unwilling they force her and
other people they caught into doing their perverse fetishes... realizing there
is no escape, no help.
yet another horror film, there are no monsters nor supernatural creatures, but
the most horrible thing is the human mind, specially when you mix kindness and
torture. Those who torture believe it is
a type of kindness, a sharing of 'love'... But the true horror is the lack of
hope or free will, each time it gets worse, including forced sex at gun point,
and in the end karma has usually has a way of biting back and as they say
'payback a b@#$%'. This is another RED
ONE HD shoot and it is weak, but the sound is also problematic and weak. Extras include commentary with cast and crew,
inside look at the film, extra bits, and trailers.
Alexakis, the singer/songwriter for Everclear, co-stars here for some reason.
