Written & Directed by Charlie Steeds
Wow, just wow. Death Ranch is such an uncomfortable film to watch but it should be. With its subject matter of course we don’t plan to sit down with a bucket of popcorn and watch three African Americans being hunted down by a gang of white supremacists, however by the time the film gets into full throttle , you will be reaching for the popcorn as the tables are quickly turned on the KKK and our three heroes give the supremacists a taste of their own medicine (and their own body parts in some cases)
Death Ranch is the following, tough to watch, visually brutal, gory, very gory, thought provoking, but is a classic throw to the era of Grindhouse movies of the 70s and even though its a tough subject for a film to tackle, its also a lot of fun seeing the supremacists get what they rightly deserve. Just remember that I did mention the film is gory and even after a few days of watching amazing films at Grimmfest, even Death Ranch still made me look away on a couple of occasions.
Great film from writer director Charlie Steeds and the performances by Deiondre Teagle (Brandon) , Faith Monique ( Angela) and Travis Cutner (Clarence) are top notch. Wonderfully energetic performances.
