A family’s road trip through the Nevada desert quickly goes south when their camper breaks down in the middle of nowhere, turning them into sitting ducks for a band of mutant cannibals with a taste for baby. Caked in low-budget grime and dialing up the decade’s fascination with hicksploitation movies (Deliverance, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Smokey and the Bandit), Wes Craven’s ultra-perverse, grindhouse scuzz-shocker achieved cult immortality thanks to its memorable casting, bluntly un-stylized violence, and absolute annihilation of all-American family values: Craven pits suburban “normalcy” against heathen godlessness in a berserk, bloody civil war that doesn’t end until both sides have devolved into savagery.
