After a botched prison break, the Tan brothers' gang take refuge in the home of Hemi Crane. He and his TV chef wife, along with their teen children, don't seem much of a threat to the Tans. Then again...there have been a few additions to the residence, like a basement abattoir. It seems that Hemi Crane has become a devotee of a Maori cult that is introducing cannibalism to the 21st century. So the question is, will the hapless criminals escape or become one with the evening's casserole? Needs better sound level balance between dialogue and music plus English subtitle option. Done in New Zealand splatter comedy tradition. Not recommended as a Christmas gift for your grandparents.
