Religious Hammer vs. Religious Machete
Using the same hand-held camera filming technique as The Blair Witch Project (1999), June 9 (2008) finds a van full of spank-worthy teens filming themselves smoking pot, smashing mailboxes with baseball bats and trespassing on land loaded with marijuana plants, owned by religious zealots.
Of course they get captured, with each pulled out of the van by townsfolk wearing colorful shirts, which may or may not be Hawaiian in nature (but certainly style). The men are sporting sport hats.
The teens are smacked on the head with a hammer, which calms them down real quick. Then we see an edited scene of an arm being cut off by a machete. A little boy finds the still-running camera and keeps it rolling. He’s not a very good cameraman, as we can hear the bodies being chopped up and put in a wheelbarrow, but we don’t get to see it.
June 9 is mind-numbingly boring and incredibly slow to get to the point. By the time it does get there, you want the religious people to hurry up and dismember everyone so you can go back to watching quality TV.
