Eaters (2011/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: D Film: C

If Strangers scared you then you may want to check out this indie horror film, Eaters, that is set against a desert landscape with masked humans being the killers. Part Texas Chainsaw Massacre and part Strangers, this film was better than expected.

Five friends embark on an epic road trip, but when one friend disappears at a rest stop, their search brings them face to face with a violent biker gang. After a narrow escape from death, their nightmare goes from bad to spine-chilling when they find themselves being stalked by Eaters, sack headed old fashioned-dressed people, in an abandoned desert town.

Eaters stars Marcelle Bowman (Last Days), Robert Dean (Jim), Jonathan Haltiwanger (TV's Street Behavior) and Hannah Risinger (TV's Dead of Night). The film is low budget but has some impressive gore including a tongue being cut by scissors. Ouch!

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 2.40:1 and a lossy English Dolby Digital 5.1 track, the film looks fine for a DVD but doesn't reach the detail of high definition.

The only extra is a Trailer Gallery of other Lionsgate films including Maggie (reviewed elsewhere on this site).
