steve d Filmmakers need to learn that just because you made a disgusting movie, it does not mean you made a scary one, or a good one. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member 'Dead End' in Germany??? Seriously just because you throw in some blood, body ripping and naked chicks, doesn't make it a horror movie. This was so crap and boring, just don't bother. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Barricade (not sure how the title relates to the film) is about a couple of old friends (regular horror duo Raine Brown and Joe Zaso) reuniting in Germany to rekindle their own friendship and possibly more while camping out in the woods, which happen to be inhabited by demented, mutant, cannibal freaks that kill just about everyone they come in contact with (which is a lot in the surprisingly crowded woods) in some really gory ways. I'm not doing the word "gore" justice here. This HAS to be one of the goriest films I've seen in awhile, especially from goremeister director Timo Rose (who also makes an appearance in the film) who usually goes for the gore, but never this gory! The big problem with this film is Rose's attempt to make an American film through a German perspective, which dilutes the acting and storytelling, thus causing several bad and awkward moments that either go nowhere or irritate the viewer. It's a shame because everyone's heart is in the right place. If you can get past those moments and just stick to the "horror" and "gore" aspect of the film, you may find it somewhat enjoyable. Beware, there is one particularly squeamish and upsetting scene involving boob torture and dissection; definitely a highlight of this film. Wow. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member WOW! What a nasty little film this is. The realism of the gore in this film makes Hostel and Saw look like Disney films. We are in Wrong Turn/The Hills Have Eyes territory. A cannibalistic family that kill pretty much all who come to the Black Forest Mountains of Germany. I love the way this film has been shot, the speed of the editing really adds to the realism of the kills. Also I like the way it switches from German to English throughout various parts of the film. It's the most sadistic and brutal film that I've ever seen. I absolutely love Raine Brown and may have found my new indie horror chick favourite? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member When three friends two of which havent seen each other in years decide to reunite in germany for a nice weekend trip of relaxing hikeing and camping in the woods they never thought it would end up the way it did as it turns out there is a long forgotten cannibal family hideing out in those same woods and have been feeding off of tourist campers for years now the friends must fight back if they wanna survive, Pretty thin story is just a cover for all the blood and gore they threw at this movie which wasnt all that bad but wasnt all that good either gore fans will love watching this.
