Things could not get any worse for Mitchell, who just lost his girlfriend, his apartment, and his job. With nowhere to go, he answers an ad for a roommate and finds himself in a West Virginia countryside motel with JD, an affable hillbilly of mysterious origins. Soon JD’s neighbours - curmudgeonly Flip, meth-head Marlene, and her hot-headed boyfriend Tommy – have all but taken over the tiny room. When the group find themselves in a hostage situation, Mitchell must decide to save himself or join this dysfunctional family and let his freak flag fly.
Directed by Harry Burton, Out There On Fried Meat Ridge Rd. is a hillbilly comedy with a heart of gold.
Cast: Keith Stevenson, Robert Moloney, Alex Ferns, Michael Wade, Melanie Gray.
