Plot Summary:
"Anticipating a weekend of R & R in the mountainous region of Northern Arizona, nine college buddies lodge at a remote cabin -- where local lore warns them of the horrifying evil that slinks in the dark forest. Dismissing the cautions of the nearby townspeople, the friends are now trapped in a night of blood-soaked terror that will transform this simple getaway into a permanent vacation. David Michael Quiroz Jr. helms this indie slasher flick."

This low budget film starts out incredible cliché and takes a long time to get going. Once you find out what’s going on however, things get surprisingly fresh.

The film features nine friends on vacation in the mountains. There is a famous legend concerning the place about some sorority sisters who disappeared years previously, but despite warnings from the locals, the group inevitably decides to stay…with horrific consequences.

I don’t really want to say any more about the plot, as caught unawares, this movie will surprise you.

There is some talent to be found amongst the unknown cast and there is also some nice camerawork going on here too. On the downside, the film is far too long and really starts to drag later (I was severely tempted to skip forward in parts, but resisted), it also becomes boring to look at (as the film essentially takes place in one cabin) and whilst the effects are ambitious, they don’t really work all that effectively.

OVERALL SUMMARY
This could have been a really good indie gem, however, it has terrible pacing issues and a lack of budget means that the filmmakers could only provide a lacklustre score and shonky effects work. I knew absolutely nothing about this film before watching and it caught me by surprise, I just wish the team behind it had capitalised on the shock revelation, but they didn’t go as far with the concept as I wished they had. One shock and an excellent stunt sequence aside, this dragged far too much to be fully enjoyable. That aside, I would be curious to see what else the director does in the future.
