2013 Guide Analysis: "A $5 million indie feature built on cameos galore, this ensemble piece revolves around items sold or found in a small Southern town’s local pawn shop. Characters include the likes of a man searching for his abducted wife, a couple of white-supremacist meth heads and a sad sack Elvis impersonator. Described as a "hillbilly Pulp Fiction," the film is mostly notable for the re-teaming of "Running Scared" director Wayne Kramer and actor Paul Walker who will star in and produce the film.

Amongst the talent participating are the likes of Elijah Wood, Brendan Fraser, Vincent D'Onofrio, Thomas Jane, Matt Dillon, Lukas Haas, DJ Qualls, Rachelle Lefevre, Chi McBride , Michael Cudlitz and Ashlee Simpson. Fred Durst was originally slated to direct, but dropped out which led to Kramer stepping in to take the helm. The film has also scored an R-rating for "violence, sexual material, graphic nudity, pervasive language and some drug use" so it ticks all the right boxes."
