The parents' guide to what's in this movie.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this horror film about a group of young adults who visit a creepy old house where a hideous man-monster is supposed to have lived has a high body count. There's lots of blood and gore, and much of the violence comes from humans threatening and/or attacking one another with weapons. One scene shows a person eating human body parts. There's full-frontal nudity as well as some perverse sexual situations, including a relationship between a brother and sister. The main characters (who may be of age but may not) drink beer and wine and smoke pot. Language includes multiple uses of "f--k" and "s--t."

What's the story?
Six (presumably) college-age kids -- who don't seem to like each other much -- drive through Louisiana on their way to a fun getaway. Stopping for gas, they meet some creepy backwoods locals and learn about the legend of a man-monster supposedly living in a swamp. They decide to see the creature's home and wind up spending the night in the woods. Soon, the monster comes out of hiding and begins to attack. Unfortunately, the monster is looking for more than a meal: It's looking for a bride. What's more, it has some unexpected help.
Is it any good?
This monster movie is about as bad as they come. Its amazingly low-budget "effects" include an actual latex monster rather than the now-more-typical CGI. The creature isn't at all scary, but some of the behavior of the human characters can be disturbing; some of the behavior on display here includes incest and cannibalism.
