i rented this dvd recently, and was quite suprised at how good it was. it wasn't a masterpeice, it had a low budget, and some child actors who weren't so great, but overall it was a pretty good movie, in the tradition of hitchcock or m. night shamalayan.
bill paxton directed the film, his first, about a family of serial kilers who may or may not be insane. from the advertisements i recall seeing, this was billed as a McConaughey film, but he has a small role in it, and mostly narrates the film. the majority of the film focuses on McConaughey's character as a child and his father's evil deeds.
if this film had a major star and director attached, along with a bigger production and ad budget it would of gotten more attention. but, with that said, it's worth renting. way, way better than that piece of crap "reighn of fire", in which McConaughey plays his texas chainsaw character, without the chainsaw. if i ever see McConaughey in texas, i'm gonna get a refund for that one!:happy:
