Three kids, Sophie, James and Wes, on their way to a music festival gets stranded when their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. Luckily they get a ride from Reg Morgan who is driving the company truck of Morgan Brother’s “Blood and Bone” organic fertilizer. Luckily?
The Morgan brothers manufacture and sell organic fertilizer, and their product is getting so popular they are running out of stock. The reason their fertilizer is so popular is because of their secret ingredience – grinded roadkill. When they are low on roadkill victims of trafficaccidents will do to. In fact those are even better than dead animals. It seems like the fresher the bodies the more powerful the fertilizer.
Reg gets the hots for Sophie and takes her and the two boys to the Morgan farm. This pisses his bossy big brother Lindsey off and when the boys find a dead body in the back of the company truck Lindsey decides to mix them in the fertilizer. Reg on the other hand tries to find a way to save Sophie.
There are blood and gore and maiming and torture but also lots of really weird humor. It may not be for everyone but I found it very funny.
My verdict: 8 out of 10.
