Years ago, a few murders happened in Shady Groves, murders so gruesome they have since built the basis for urban legends.

Now, five youngsters (Lorena King, Vivi Pineda, Fernando Vieira, Eddy Acosta, Alex Livinalli) pass through the town when their car breaks down. Fortunately, they make it to the local garage, but unfortunately, their car cannot be fixed before tomorrow ... but fortunately, there's Maria (Cecilia Huete), a pretty local girl who lives in a house too big for her on her own who invites them to spend the night, just so she has some company, somebody to have a barbecue with. And actually, she feels very attracted to one of the youngsters, Marco (Fernando Vieira). During the barbecue, she tells the others the local legend of Shane (Edward Madera), the boy who had to witness his father kill his mother, and who has then been chained to a tree to grow up into a homicidal monster. Not that anyone really believes the story of course ...

The youngsters however would be well-adviced to to exactly that, believe the story, because there is a killer out there - and while Marco is in Maria's room with Maria trying to get to first base, his friends are slaughtered out there. And he thinks he's got problems because she refuses to make out with him ...

Basically, Beware may not exactly have reinvented cinema - but it's a top rate old school slasher movie: Its story does afford itself a few twists and turns (not often found in slasher cinema) but makes perfect sense within genre boundaries, there are no postmodern injokes to detract from the plot at hand, instead tension and suspense are high throughout, and atmosphere and gore are kept in just the right balance to neither become bloodless nore all-slaughterhouse-no-content. And the fact that the film features a better than usual ensemble cast doesn't hurt one bit either, of course.

This all of course does not make Beware a masterpiece of contemporary cinema - just a darn good slasher, and some days, that's all one needs!
