Kit (Lindsey Morgan) and Simon (Andrew Jacobs) take a busload of pensioners to Pomroy Hacket's (Thomas Cokenias) rodeo right in the middle of nowhere, and everyone seems to have a good time - until upon leaving, their bus gets attacked by a rider with a hook on a leash who kills their busdriver, and it's only thanks to Kit's quick thinking that they get away at all - all but Simon, who had to fetch something from the rodeo grounds, and who's quickly captured and caged by the rodeo people ... where he meets a few others who share his fate, including one-armed rodeo rider Ennis (Sean Patrick Flanery), rodeo queen Rosheen (Heather Mignon) and strongwoman Trish (Skyler Cooper), and together they manage to escape the cage - but not the rodeo crowds, which are huge, and Hacket's people are everywhere. And slowly, the ranks of our heroes thin out, while the rest play hide and seek, with varying success.

Meanwhile, Kit in the bus doesn't fare any better, the thing breaks down soon enough, and in an effort to get it going again, they are tracked down by Hacket's man one by one ultil only Kit and elderly Lillian (Karen Grassle) remain alive - but are soon captured.

Eventually, Simon and Ennis put into action to make an escape, but it would mean leaving the others behind - and Simon, his heart always in the right place, just cannot do that. Problem is, Simon might be a good guy, but he's seriously lacking in courage, physical strength and ruthlessness, and might be not enough man to save those in need despite his best intentions ...


One can't deny, Lasso is a slasher movie, and it follows the formula very closely - but even in doing so, it shows more creativity than most slashers of this day: Setting the thing at a rodeo by itself is quite original, and rodeo-themed action and murders are used throughout the film, plus the heroes are more of a diverse (also agewise) and heterogenous group than usual, relying on more than just good-looking teens, and the whole thing's very well-paced and brutal, but with traces of irony throughout. Plus, the courage-less but big-hearted hero is utterly relatable, too. Defiinitely worth a watch.
