SYNOPSIS:
Crawldaddy and her kids have been travelling cross-country selling fine leather apparel in their van. Unfortunately they break down right in the middle of killin' this rich businessman. Tom and his wife decide to put them up for the weekend. However, their neighbor Paul, a disturbed ex-cop, discovers that the clan has been killing people and skinning them alive! It's the most realistic "crazy backwoods family" movie since THE HILLS HAVE EYES and THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. It's fun for the whole family...the Manson family, that is!!

REVIEWS:
"This movie was awesome...takes you on a gruesome ride and won't let you get off until the end. The acting and character development was outstanding. I urge anyone who likes gore and a great story to check this one out. You will enjoy it." - Den of Doom

"The ending is a real surprise...an incredibly gutsy move on the part of Mr. Killough. The gore effects in the film are all well done though, and do lend a bit of authenticity to the film. Characters are impaled, shot, run over, and of course, skinned. Spiegel shows what he can do as an actor and turns in an eccentric performance as the unstable Phink." - The Jacksonville Film Journal

"God was this movie gross! This is the only movie I've seen in recent history to actually make me nauseous, and I mean that as a compliment. The title to this movie says it all...features a tour-de-force performance by Scott Spiegel (of EVIL DEAD 2 and 3, THOU SHALT NOT KILL...EXCEPT fame). His over-the-top performance and cool gore effects make this a movie to see, so do it!" - B-Side Hollywood

"Best described as 'The Three Stooges meet THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and take a holiday,' this is a sick and often amusing slice and dice comedy. The pre-credits scene, during which a hitchhiker is bludgeoned and shot, is reminiscent of Romero's first two DEAD flicks, using landscapes to create a feeling of foreboding. The Crawldaddy shots are also effectively creepy. The whole element of slapstick throughout is an obvious Raimi/Coen influence which is augmented by the presence of Spiegel whose Phink is by far the funniest and most convincing character in the movie. Killough handles the movie well and the editing is pretty slick. All in all, if you like early Raimi and the comic book films of William Lustig you should find something here to amuse you. " - Movie Meister's Basement Projection Room

"Similar to TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, this film actually benefits from its ultra-low budget. The story has a family selling fine leather out of the back of their van. Read the title again to see where they obtain their materials. Three stars!" - Video Movie Guide 1999
