Manje (2007)

"Flesh is his feast and it's time to eat"

Synopsis: Nine friends decide to vacation in one of the most rural locations in the country in an attempt to end the mourning period of one of their beloved. Krista (Erica Franco) is dealing with the recent death of her father and relies on Marc (Chris Morgan, The Slaughterhouse Massacre) for comfort and protection. Unbeknownst to them a tenth member has joined the festivities, but with less joyous ideas in mind. When their friends start dying, Marc and Krista must unravel an old mystery to avoid becoming victims themselves.

My Thoughts: I picked this dvd up at one of the Hollywood Video going-out-of-business sales last summer for a quarter, so it would be almost impossible to feel cheated. Was it good? No, not really. It had it's moments though and never got too boring (which seems to plague a lot of these low budget horror movies).

The cover art completely misleads you into thinking that this is a zombie flick, even though it's really a slasher. The acting was hit and miss, the gore was totally cheesy and the killer well... his make-up was so fuckin' cheap that it looked like they used the stuff you would pick up at Wal-Mart for an 8 year old trick or treater.

The good points you ask, it had a couple. First of all, the story was actually pretty decent. It had a cool twist at the end. The guy that saved this movie from being a total disaster was Ray (David Moretti, Murder Dot Com) who plays a complete dick and had me rollin' throughout the movie. There would be no reason for these people to ever hang out with this piece of shit. His finest moment is when he has this chick (with one of the biggest racks ever in a horror flick) in bed with him and stops to try to sneak in a threesome. You gotta respect the guy for tryin'.

My Rating: 3.5 / 10

It's worth the 25 cents I paid for it. For a b-horror movie you could definitely do worse, but I probably wouldn't waste my time trying to find it.
