★★★★ review by Chris Genro on Letterboxd
WOW!!!! What an awesome violent indie thriller this is!! I was not expecting this level of style and storytelling when I sat down to watch this. The performances are really good all around but what makes this stand out is the direction by Sean Brosnan (the son of Pierce Brosnan who produced the film). To think this is his directorial debut is amazing.
The film moves at such a fast pace but also has time for some quiet moments. There is also a rocking score and it has a nice 70s vibe I really appreciated. It's to bad this didn't receive a theatrical release as its so far above the usual indie films you come across. Easily 4/5 and could go up on a rewatch.

An early Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds song as a movie. One of the more brutal ones. 'Papa Won't Leave You, Henry' + 'Stagger Lee'.
I see I'm not the first to get there.
★★★★ review by Kristian on Letterboxd
A stylish redneck revenge story about a deaf man dealing with his evil-with-a-capital-E father. Beautifully shot and edited. Overly ambitious with its black and white and voice-overs, but admirably so. Funny and sweet amidst the pitch black.

As of right now, this film has become my favorite of the year. It's gritty and rough with a lot of subtexts that will have you thinking about for days. Beautiful cinematography and great performances from everyone.
★★★★½ review by Brooker on Letterboxd
A bloody and brutal look at patricide and oedipal complexes, through the eyes of Rob Zombie!
