‘Something cold, something blue, something borrowed, something slew.’
American Backwoods: Slew Hampshire – aka Slew Hampshire – is a 2013 American horror feature film produced, written and directed by Flood Reed.

“It’s a unique movie that you won’t feel unfamiliar with, and that’s just one of its many tricks. Slew Hampshire actually requires you to think about it after its done, and how often does that happen with movies that essentially show themselves to be shlock horror? This is shlock, exploitation, creature feature, teen comedy and Darwinism, all trapped in the middle of the woods. So basically – fun, a little confusing and reeks of filth.” Film Bizarro
