Unbelievably gory & horrific!!!!!!

"This movie has the craziest scariest gore scene i've ever seen!!!! You can see it in full un-neutered glory on the Unrated edition Carver or semi-neutered Rated edition Carver! Either way it will make everyone, especially the male audience members, cringe. I'll say one thing pliers and genitals do not mix well together."

"While the plot for Carver might not be terribly original, I must say that this little gem surprised the hell out of me. It's incredibly well shot and generates a true sense of suspense and dread from beginning to end. The acting? Again, it surprised the hell out of me in a very good way. All performances were spot-on which is usally not this case in a low budget slasher film. In addition, the backwoods locations were just awesome and really added to the appeal. Crumbling outhouses, barns and even the woods themselves are used very smartly and effectively. The effects were definitely gruesome and well done. Don't believe the other review here that says this movie is only about the gore because it isn't. Any self-respecting horror fan should check this sucker out. And for the record, no, I am not the writer/director of this film nor do I know anyone associated with this film."
Decent enough torture flick

"The torture sub-genre of horror is all the rage, thanks to all the Saw's and Hostel's and the like that seem to pop up every month or two. What makes these films good as opposed to jsut exercises in brutality is whether or not they provide the scares that they should. Carver is one of these, and the fact that it pays some good homage to Texas Chainsaw Massacre in the process makes it worth checking out. The familiar storyline involves a group of young people on a road trip that make a wrong turn, and soon enough are hunted, tortured, and murdered by a sadistic, backwoods family. Yeah, Carver isn't original in the least, but it provides enough scares, shocks, and some blood curdling gore (including a scene involving a pair of pliers that will make you squirm) to satisfy fans of low budget horror. Carver isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but if torture horror is your thing, you could do a lot worse than what you get here."
This was gory!!!

"If you are a fan of horror movies, esp movies like Hostel, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Saw...you would enjoy this. There are several scenes that made me drop my jaw and turn away. And for the men, the outhouse scene is one of the worst things I ever saw! I cringed and I am not even a man. Very interesting flick. Not for the squeamish."
