The Carters are an idyllic American family travelling through the great American southwest. But their trip takes a detour into an area closed off from the public -- an area originally used by the U.S. Government for nuclear testing that was intended to remain empty. When the Carter's car breaks down at the old site, they find themselves stranded and discover that the site isn't uninhabited after all.

One of the best gory horror film and more importantly based on plausible premise. Consider to be warned and prepared for what to expect during the early scenes but still shocking to experience the rest. Per wiki, it is a remake of Wes Craven's 1977 film of the same name. It was written by filmmaking partners Alexandre Aja and Grégory Levasseur of the French horror film High Tension, and directed by Aja. The film follows a family that is targeted by a group of cannibalistic mutants after their car breaks down in the desert.

Was this 2006 remake, in reality, supposed to be some sort of a "God-Works-In-Mysterious-Ways" movie for New-Age, religious zealots?

The reason why I ask this question was because whoever wrote the script made a firm point (before all hell broke lose in the story) of letting the viewer know full-well that the entire Carter family (the victims) were, in fact, Christians who actually prayed together as a religious unit.

And, if this really was such a movie as I stated above, then it was yet another truly pathetic statement about Christianity as a whole, where (even after their prayers) "god" actually allowed his faithful followers (the Carters) to endure all of this horrific violence, bloodshed and murder.

I mean, was this hideous ordeal (in a screwed-up sort of way) supposed to somehow renew the faith of the Carters (at least the ones who remained alive) just because the baby was spared?

Anyway - This "Wrong Turn/Texas Chainsaw" copycat, horror flick was, as I expected, even worse than the 1977 original (which is hard to believe that anything could be worse than the likes of what Wes Craven directed).
