Live Animals (2008)

I bought this thing from Best Buy called "Horror Collector's Set" for $4.99.  It has four movies on it and this is one of them.  Live Animals is seriously low-budget but I liked this flick.  It was an original concept and exciting enough to keep me watching it for 1.5 hours.

Live Animals is about a group of college kids hanging out at a cabin for the weekend (or longer?  It's not clear)  They throw a party, drink, have fun and sex, and are generally having an awesome time.

However, there's trouble lurking nearby.  A beefy masked kidnapper is all worked up to swipe some co-eds and that he does.  Hours later, they regain their senses to see that they are all locked in horse stalls in a barn.  One of the friends is being tortured in order to set an example for the others to behave.  Torture continues, but we're not sure yet why these people are being kept.

However, we soon learn that this is all part of some white slavery ring being propagated by the creepy Santa Claus looking dude that runs this shit.  Suffering continues, and some attempt escape.  Will they be successful?  That is the question.

The sound and picture kind of sucked in this movie, but I thought it was a pretty solid flick.  Especially for $1.25.  I'll keep posting reviews to the rest of the movies on the disc, and for those of you that are interested, looks like it's still available at Best Buy.
