Death Ranch review

British director Charlie Steeds has proved to be one of the most prolific filmmakers from these shores, with a host of themes tackled in such a short career so far.

His latest feature Death Ranch sees him venturing into Tarantino territory with a 70s style blaxploitation action thriller.

Three African American siblings on the run from the police take refuge at an abandoned Tennessee Ranch, unaware their hideout is on the hunting grounds of a cannibalistic Ku Klux Klan cult.

Safe to say this movie does not hold back with tonnes of blood for the gorehounds but it also strikes a nice balance between OTT villains and the strong relationships between brother and sister Brandon and Angela.

It is also refreshing to see the use of practical effects, with blood and limbs flying everywhere this is another masterstroke for Steeds who must have had a ball creating this bonkers caper.

Death Ranch is available now on DVD.
