AFF 2012 Review: BONEBOYS

By Mark Saldana

Rating: 1 (Out of 4 Stars)

Probably the worst movie I watched at AFF this year, this film which was written by Kim Henkel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), is an absolute mess, and I’m not referring to the gore either.  Director’s Duane Graves and Justin Meeks create an insane, over-the-top movie which feels strikingly similar to Chainsaw Massacre, but placed in an urban setting.  In fact, Graves and Meeks not only go way overboard with the insanity, they also overload their film with winks and references to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre including appearances by Marilyn Burns, Edwin Neal, and Terri McMinn who all appeared in Tobe Hooper’s 1974 film.

Much like that movie, Boneboys involves a night gone horribly wrong for a group of teenagers who have a run-in with a group of cannibals.  These cannibals, however, are involved in a hellish underground moneymaking scheme.  In additional to the ridiculous craziness of it all, Kim Henkel’s story simply rehashes the same material and content of his first film, but changes the setting and the characters slightly.  Meeks andGraves’ lack of restraint in their presentation only makes this movie even worse with loads of over-acting and absolute nonsense permeating through and through.
