In this exploitation classic, inspired by The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a mid-American family goes on vacation to search for an old mine in the desert which belongs to them.

When the car breaks down and they're attacked by a band of barbaric caveman-mutants, lead by a bald maniac. Wes Craven inserts subtle social commentary into this pulpy video-nasty.

'A heady mix of ironic allegory and seat-edge tension' - Derek Adams, Time Out
