Before being sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends take one last road trip, but when they get into an accident, a terrifying experience will take them to a secluded house of horrors, with a chainsaw-wielding killer.
In August, 1939, a worker goes into labor while working in a slaughterhouse and dies after a complicated labor, though the deformed child survives. The possibly orphaned baby is dumped in a garbage container and found by a beggar later, who brings him home. Along the years, the mentally retarded and disturbed boy called Thomas is raised by the Hewitt family in spite of having psychological problems as well as suffering from an unnamed skin disorder, later working in a meat packing plant.

I went and saw this movie,
My step-brother won tickets off a radio station for the preview, and I am glad that I got to see it, (For Free), it definitely was not worth the price of the ticket. Having Jordana Brewester was good, the acting was mediocre and as many have said it is the same tired old story.
One Guy said that it was more disturbing, then scary, and there some intense parts, and they were not predictable, and this is true. But for the most part it was OK, I would definitely wait for the DVD that is always better anyways with all the extras and crap that they put in there.
