Hoboken Hollow (2006)

What to watch? Great question, isn’t it? After spending quite a few moments watching entries from the Pure Terror Collection, I decided it was finally time to finish Bloody Slashers from the Midnight Horror Collection. The last flick on my agenda is the (supposed) inspired true story of Hoboken Hollow from 2006.  

Plot/ As Trevor drifts through Texas on collision course with a nightmare he is still haunted by the evils of the war he recently returned from and a promise he failed to keep. When a stranger offers a ride, Trevor finds himself battling the brutal homegrown evil of the Broderick family at Hoboken Hollow, a remote West Texas ranch that many visit but few ever leave.

While this started off as bit of a mess, there is actually something inside this rather cliché flick that is not that bad. Sure, it is not very scary, but what it lacks in chills it makes up in violence and gore. The characterization and storyline (supposedly based on a true story) are solid (especially for a low budget entry) and for once there are actually some rather disturbing imagery (the eyeball on the windshield is classic). Yes, it is not perfect, but for something out of a 5 dollar bargain collection, it is well worth watching.
