Plot – Spoilers:
The streets of France are riddled with riots following elections and a young gang use the opportunity to make away with 125K in cash. One of them is shot, and so the group split with the plan of eventually meeting at the border.

Two of them drive down there and decide to pitch tent at a hostel where they even get laid and shrug off the stress of the preceding hours. Things begin to go pear shaped when the people running the place notice their cash bag. But the gang of street thugs aren’t about to be let off easy with a simple theft as they soon discover the bizarre truth about the loonies living there.

Favorite Scenes:
1. Tom and Farid snaking their way through the narrow tunnel is claustrophobic and so well captured, you almost feel the weakening breath as Tom whimpers that he is stuck.

2. The climax as Yasmine in her nice white dress gets progressively sprayed with gore as she moves from one victim to another.

It was comparable to an ill-advised fusion of The Descent (2005) and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003).

This film is silly. Bunch of Muslim kids on the run end up at a Motel/Meat works/Mine? run by inbred cannibals who are also nazis! Could be a B grade/Troma film if it didn’t take itself so very seriously. Basically Texas Chainsaw Massacre with baguettes. But not nearly as good.

Storyline was a bit suspect and acting a bit amateurish, but thumbs up for the excellent gore, especially the saw scene. That was awesome. The french make some of the goriest films and french girls are hot. All in all it was quite good.

movie started out well with an interesting plot, then it deteriorated (nazi wants his son to marry muslim?..), the gore was outstanding however, mixed feelings on this one for me… not a bad movie but also not very convincing
