There's a reason the Hardell family lives so far out of town: They don't want company. That's a lesson a group of high school kids learns the hard way when they trespass on the run-down Hardell ranch to guzzle beer and skinny-dip. After the brew kicks in, the teens get brave, and one of them dares to do a ''ring and run'' on the Hardell front porch.
But when the old man of the house answers the door pointing a shotgun, things get kind of tense, and before you can say ''Deliverance,'' one person is dead and the kids are laughing no more. What follows is a human hunting party, and the torture-loving Hardells have Hostel-like intentions for their young prey.
SAVAGE COUNTY, directed by fearless first-timer David Harris, started life as a Web miniseries, but due to popular demand, it was turned into a feature and had its premiere on MTV2. The DVD features the uncensored cut that was too graphic for basic cable.
