I just sat down to watch Backwoods (ya, the Haylie Duff one) and within the opening credits of the film, I noticed something rather interesting. You know that fox that time lapse decays in the awesome opening of True Blood? Backwoods totally stole it and used it in their shitty opening! Take a look!
The first clip is True Blood, followed by Backwoods.
What kinda shit is that!! Give True Blood its decaying fox back!
As for the movie itself, it actually wasn't as bad as one might expect it to be, although it's completely and utterly cliche and devoid of even a shred of originality. So ya, I guess it did suck. Not to mention it lacked the one thing that could make even a cliche and unoriginal horror flick enjoyable ; cool gory kills. It wasn't the worst thing i've ever seen but the fact that we have far better mutant family on the loose movies at our disposal (Wrong Turn 1 & 2, The Hills Have Eyes, Deliverance, and even the Gary Oldman film of the same name as this one) pretty much makes this a completely useless watch. If you're gonna make a film so by the books and so much like every other horror movie out there, at least give us some creative and brutal kill scenes, will ya!
