It's the not-too-distant future, and the French presidential elections are a face-off between a conservative and an extreme right-wing candidate. The banlieues are ablaze. After a failed robbery, a gang of small-time crooks splits up and goes on the run from the police, some of them seeking refuge in a seedy hostel, deep in the middle of nowhere. Unbeknownst to the robbers, their hosts are a bunch of Neo-Nazi cannibals, who will go to any lengths to turn their fascist fantasies into a reality. Our young protagonists' ordeal begins and, subjected to all kinds of mutilation and torture, they learn the true meaning of universal suffrage.
A brutal French horror.

A slick French horror in the same vein as ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ and ‘The Hills Have Eyes’, in which a gang of thieves flee the Paris riots and meet up at a hotel near the Luxemburg border which is owned by a family of Nazi cannibals led by a former SS officer named Le Von Geisler, where the men are butchered for meat and suitable women are used to produce offspring. After a slow opening 30 minutes the film soon turns into a storm of violence and gore which leads up to a thrilling final 20 minutes. If you enjoyed French horror like ‘Haute Tension’ and ‘Martyrs’, and don’t mind subtitles then this is well worth renting.
