Craig Thompson's idyllic hunting trip with his two buddies and unstable cousin is wrecked after hearing that his fiancée and best man-to-be have been cavorting behind his back. To make matters worse, Craig's cousin appears to be on the verge of a murderous rampage, while a rapidly spreading Chupacabra virus is transforming locals into the undead. After taking drastic measures to protect themselves, the boys must put aside their differences to survive an insidious hillbilly gang and impending zombie melee.
Maybe the best movie to equate Buck Wild to would be City Slickers. City folk go to the country to unwind at a ranch and Curlie's Ghost attacks... um, that would make it City Slickers 2 I suppose. Forget that I mentioned it.
I soaked up the gore, and found Buck Wild to have enough substance to keep my eyes busy while preparing my "suspension of disbelief" sensory from the get go allowing for smooth sailing into the movies unbelievable and predicable finish. The wheel was only reinvented so far if at all. You can do worse for movies that involve the Chupacabra concept and definitely worse in the hillbilly horror side of the silo. The whole thing plays up like a zombie movie, but I prefer to the think that the focus is really on the demonic side perhaps leaning it closer to a REC than a Night of the Living Dead.
Buck Wild hits shelves March 18th.
