Horror Movie Review: Inbred (2011)

A group of people come under attack from a town full of inbred hicks with serious bloodlust. It’s a familiar plot, one that has been done a fair bit of the years. Inbred isn’t doing anything new but what it does have is a gleefully high amount of gore & blood!

Here, four young offenders and their two caretakers travel to a small Yorkshire village to do community service. This community though is a bit off, a little bit twisted, a little bit…Inbred!

A movie that gets so much wrong but thanks to the over the top blood-letting is at least entertaining. Directed by Alex Chandon and co-written with Paul Shrimpton; Tim, Sam, Dwight, Zeb and their caretakers, Kate and Jeff arrive in Mortlake.

It takes a while to get going, introducing characters that are both unlikable & under-developed. Thankfully after an accident that sees Jeff get hurt, they go for help at the local pub but end up in even more danger!

From this point onwards, the movie stops being such a soulless & patience-sapping affair. Upping the silliness & proving to be a fairly amusing watch. Some of the group are captured & put in a show for the entertainment of the townspeople. A show that involves a head-crushing by horse & faecal matter pumped inside a body. It’s nasty, visceral watch but is so over the top you can’t help but enjoy it.

It’s a pity that there isn’t really a decent payoff. This is the kind of movie where you want to see the ‘baddies’ get some sort of comeuppance but it doesn’t happen. The cast are very hit & miss. Seamus O’Neill as Jim the pub landlord is the standout, delivering a memorable performance. However, that is about it.

Unfortunately, Inbred treads over far too familiar ground & while the violence and gore does entertain it’s not enough to make this recommendation.
