The Carters are an idyllic American family travelling through the great American southwest. But their trip takes a detour into an area closed off from the public, but more importantly from society. An area originally used by the U.S. Government for nuclear testing that was intended to remain empty. When the Carter's car breaks down at the old site, they find themselves stranded. As the Carters may soon realize that what seemed like a car casually breaking down, might actually be a trap. This trap might be perpetrated by the inhabitants of the site who aren't pulling a prank, but are out to set up a gruesome massacre.

Was this 2006 remake, in reality, supposed to be some sort of a "God-Works-In-Mysterious-Ways" movie for New-Age, religious zealots?

The reason why I ask this question was because whoever wrote the script made a firm point (before all hell broke lose in the story) of letting the viewer know full-well that the entire Carter family (the victims) were, in fact, Christians who actually prayed together as a religious unit.

And, if this really was such a movie as I stated above, then it was yet another truly pathetic statement about Christianity as a whole, where (even after their prayers) "god" actually allowed his faithful followers (the Carters) to endure all of this horrific violence, bloodshed and murder.

I mean, was this hideous ordeal (in a screwed-up sort of way) supposed to somehow renew the faith of the Carters (at least the ones who remained alive) just because the baby was spared?

Anyway - This "Wrong Turn/Texas Chainsaw" copycat, horror flick was, as I expected, even worse than the 1977 original (which is hard to believe that anything could be worse than the likes of what Wes Craven directed).
