Dollar Bin Horror Spotlight - Madness (DVD Review)
A group of four is on their way to Minneapolis to compete in a cheerleading competition and party together. At the same time, a group of vigilantes are waiting for their next bunch of victims along the way. Their only intention is to hunt, capture and kill.
This film has to be the most sick and disturbing low budget film I've ever reviewed, and one of my favorites. If you can't stomach disturbing scenes of violence and murder, you shouldn't even watch the first five minutes of this film! It reminded me of movies along the lines of The Devil's Rejects and Wrong Turn, but in it's own way was unique and fresh. It was very well written, well shot, and the acting was great. What I liked best about the film was that between all the blood and gore were some real moments of genuine emotions between the characters. You really feel for them, and I think thats missing in a lot of gory films these days. It gives this film a leg up on the rest. The FX and blood in the film was wonderfully grotesque. But not only does the film turn your stomach, it genuinely frightens you and makes you feel uneasy...and I watched it during the day! If you can handle disturbing images, this is a great horror film and I highly recommend it! Find out more about it at www.madness-movie.com
