Flesh, TX (2009)
Director: Guy Crawford
Where to get it: Well Go USA
In the middle of nowhere lives a crazed and disturbed inbred family, the Barleys. When Donna Parker (Eleni Krimitsos) and her daughter Tabitha Parker (Jada Kline) stop for gas, little do they know what really goes on in Flesh, TX. Once Tabitha disappears from the gas station, Donna summons the help of the local sheriff (Dale Denton) who is not all he is cracked up to be. Donna becomes convinced that somehow this crazy town is connected. After she encounters Sugar Barley (Kathleen Benner) the local town slut, the hunt to find her daughter is on. She must hope she does not come across the Barley house on the edge of town. No human should ever have to see what happens in the Barley house in Flesh, TX.pop.666.
What we have here is a film that is a little bit of House of a 1,000 Corpses and a little bit of 2001 Maniacs all rolled into a single package. It’s a little goofy, a little disturbing, but if you look passed its indie short comings it’s really kind of enjoyable. One of the few bright spots of this film is the very hot, Kathleen Benner. She is just one of this family’s crazy members and she does stick out for not only her looks but her character as well in this one. The film’s real plot doesn’t really start until half way into the film, but you do have Kathleen there to look at until things get going.
The thing to keep in mind with this film is that you are dealing with some much gimmick-ed characters. They all have their own evil and odd perks. Our heroes (if you want to call it that) are a woman and her daughter. The daughter is kidnapped by this crazy family because they want to eat her. They don’t do this right away because they want to fatten her up first. It’s a little silly. And you shouldn’t take it all that seriously. If you can remember those things, you should be able to have some fun with Flesh, TX.
