Synopsis
Obviously we don’t agree with the review quoted above. If you like your hip and edgy thrillers “straight-up, no chaser”, we’ve found what you’ve been looking for. Already notorious in industry circles COOKERS is a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience. Dorena, a long-time crystal metham-phetamine ‘Cooker’, holes up with Hector, her manic and tweaked-out partner with a large amount of pharmaceutical quality base stolen from a biker gang. They head out to an abandoned (and little do they know – haunted) old farmhouse in the middle of nowhere, and hook up with Hector’s childhood friend Merle. They set up the lab, test the drugs and embark on a full-tilt run towards destruction. Their paranoia and distrust come to a head, but the motivating factor remains – slowly cooking away in the upstairs bedroom. Is the evil that awaits them outside worse than what lurks within? Or is it all in their heads, just a paranoid side effect of the drugs and a week without sleep? You will want to take a long shower after you see this one.
