When a family of deranged locals capture Mike and Cheryl, their romantic weekend camping trip turns into a nightmare. With no one to turn to for help and the chance for rescue remote, they try anything to survive the insane plot the locals have them in.
Josh Randall (Mike), Brianna Brown (Cheryl), Nick Searcy (Clyde), Beth Broderick (Ida), Sascha Rosemann (Deacon).
The plot in this one is your basic horror flick with a couple of twists thrown in so it can be called original. It starts off with a good back-flash then bores us with character development for a bit before jumping back into the action. At that point the movie takes off and becomes quite interesting with some decent drama, good BOO moments, and some gore that is top-notch. All of us watching more than once emitted EWWW! Or Ooooh! Which is always a benchmark quality indicator. The film did a good job of evoking emotion as more than once I wanted to smack someone or was cheering for a head to be blown off.
Acting was fairly well done by everyone in this one. I hated Mike after the first twenty minutes so Randall did a good job, and I loved Broderick. She creeped me out nicely.
Camera work and sets were well done. I would venture a guess this was a lower budget film but Director Giglio did well focusing where his money was best spent. Dialogue was okay and sound was nicely done. Special effects were very nice, particularly the gore and violence shots.
Overall this was a nicely done horror slasher flick well worth watching. Put this one in the top-half of your Must See list.
Blood, gore, violence, torture, some descriptive sexuality, and Mike dropping the F-bomb every few seconds so save this one for the oldest teens and above.
