Storyline

Leaving the city behind for a weekend of booze, bud and bonding at the coast, seven friends find themselves stranded en route to the Gulf Coast of Texas when a big storm interferes with their plans. The town of Middle Spring is more than happy to welcome them with open arms, however; located in the rhinestone buckle of the Bible Belt, Middle Spring is smack-dab in the middle of a big barbecue and tent revival and there's always room at their table for a few more warm bodies. Unfortunately, no one in Middle Spring is exactly who they seem to be--- this town takes the 'the body and the blood' quite literally, and the friends have to stick together as time begins to run out and they realize that what's on the menu may be closer to home than they suspected.

It's really gay. And hates Christians.
21 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was expecting it to be bad. I was expecting it to be filmed on a shoestring budget. I was even expecting poor acting and cheesy gore effects. And I got it all and more.

What I wasn't expecting (I guess I don't know how to read, since there were hints all over this page) was the homosexual slant.

Now I have nothing against gays, I want to make that clear. However, having nothing against them is not synonymous with being able to stoically sit through some rather intimate and uncomfortable sex scenes without cringing. For the record, I've always hated sex scenes in my movies, because in my opinion they never make any sense. It's a private thing, I don't see how it develops the film or the characters in any way to watch that private moment. But I found myself cringing even more so while watching two guys paw and smooch each other.

Ha. I guess I have a little homophobia in me that I didn't know about.

Speaking of homophobia, lets get to the other half of this film: The psycho religious Bible-thumpers, whose drastically unreal interpretation of the writings of Moses and Jesus Christ have directed them squarely down the path of cannibalizing their out of town guests. It would be very laughable really, if it wasn't so insulting and intriguing at the same time.

What I mean by that? Well, there are a million movies about psychotic Christians because they're easy to pick on. You can make the most abhorrent accusations at them, and they don't get mad and do scary things like invade your home, drag your family into the street, behead you, rape your wife and daughters, torture your sons and sell anyone left alive into a slave trade.. Now THAT would be a scary movie. Funny that no one ever makes scary movies about religions that actually do that sort of thing. Nope, instead it's always Christians. So in that light, it's rather insulting to Christianity as a whole that they are a favorite target for films of this sort.

However, to be fair, the bad blood between Christianity and homosexuality runs very deep. While movies that demonize Christians are just about everywhere, a movie that features homosexual heroes almost seems justified in painting Christianity in a bad light. This is the first time I've ever seen the "psycho religious nuts" trope viewed through the homosexual lens.

I want to be clear, it wasn't good, but it was vaguely interesting.

I wonder if this is how most homosexuals actually view religious people? That's really sort of sad.
