    • Excerpt: Devereux Milburn brings enough interesting stylistic touches and off-kilter vibes to keep an otherwise familiar setup engaging and creepy.

    • Excerpt: No movie about backwoods cannibals should be this dull.

    • Excerpt: Milburn writes so much foreplay that the script’s eventual release is but a whimper.
  • C.H. Newell @ Father Son Holy Gore

    • Excerpt: When ‘Honeydew’ is on, it’s creepy as hell. But when it’s off, it’s a case of ‘yeah, I totally saw that coming.’
