In 1979, a group of young filmmakers set out to make an adult film in rural Texas, but when their reclusive, elderly hosts catch them in the act, the cast find themselves fighting for their lives.
The POPGORGE Skinny:
As a society we tend to regard old people as generally helpless and in need of protection, never considered a threat, and there is usually discomfort in the idea of the elderly being sexual and wanting to be desired sexually. Ti West brilliantly takes all of that into a blender and out comes this genuinely riveting, stylish, edgy work of art that will keep you on the edge of your seat. A reinvigorating jolt in the vein and a breath of fresh air in the horror genre.
