Hoboken Hollow, a 2010 film directed by Glen Stephens, follows in the footsteps of popular American horror films, such as "Texas Chainsaw Massacre," and employs the acting talents of Dennis Hopper and Michael Madsen. Although loosely based upon a true story, the film takes liberties to elevate the extent of violence and rape for artistic purposes. The film begins by following drifters drawn to a rural Texas ranch in search of work. Instead of working, however, they find themselves enslaved by a thoroughly deranged family that eventually smokes and cures the drifters as a source of food. At times, certain members of the family seem to recognize the evil in their actions, but the habitual killing and cannibalism leaves them too scarred to make more morally upright choices. Fortunately, the local sheriff (Hopper) suspects that the ranch might not be entirely legitimate, and the enslaved drifters maintain hope that their unfortunate fate might be reversed by his heroic actions.
