This is a tongue in cheek gore ride as a group of obnoxious teens take a diversion to Pleasant Valley which is a backwards town full of confederate rednecks. I'm guessing southerners must get pretty sick of this type of thing as they are portrayed as racist murderous morons who like sex with animals but strangely don't mind sex with guys. Despite the reference to that famous banjo scene Deliverance this ain't. It's a thin excuse for a bunch of set piece murders, a splash of nudity and lots of innuendo backed up by a typically over the top Robert Englund performance as the town patriarch. You might laugh, you might groan, you might be mildly entertained but it definitely outstays its welcome and even at 84 minutes it feels too long.
