It's better than the original. When I heard about this movie, I was hoping it'd be cheesy. As a direct to DVD Horror movie, the script could have taken the plot way too seriously. This film on the other hand doesn't.
The concept of survivalist reality show contestants facing off against hillbillies is great. The gore is brutal and made me react a couple times. Henry Rollins is awesome as the role of a drill sergeant. That's one thing I wanted to see in this movie, Henry Rollins beating up on redneck hillbillies and I got it.
The funny thing about this movie is that the script always assumes that we want to know more about the hillbillies and how they were created. Not true at all. I had a blast with this movie but I don't have high hopes about the other sequels.
