Plot – Spoilers:
Angel is feeling low after her father introduces her to his new girlfriend. Wanting to be away from them, and with the summer holidays on, she asks her best friends to join her on a trip to the house where her deceased mother grew up and where her aunt still lives. But her aunt is not human, and the house feasts on young girls.

This is an intentionally bad movie by the director to keep the mood amateurish and childish. Probably because it was based off his daughter’s stories who is also credited as writer. The trashy effects create memorable moments, like a severed head biting the ass of one of the girls, or a kungfu girl fighting a house that’s trying to eat her.

    A hyper-kinetic splash of silliness and, pure terror.
