User Reviews

Split right down the middle, if only it were labeled Comedy/Thriller.
6 December 2020 | by jachinwallsSee all my reviews

This movie does have a comedic sense to it - even if it weren't meant to be there. Many people complain about the camera cuts but..hello, the entire movie is in one setting, the woods, not too much you can honestly do there over the span of an hour plus without me falling asleep. The story behind it all was fairly bland, I called the correct killer in just moments, it wasn't hard because they put FAR too much emphasis on a particular aspect of one person (not trying to give away spoilers for those interested).

For us horror movie fanatics I believe this would fall short of our expectations BUT it is 100% WORTH the watch. The gore alone kept me interested for the next kill, the actors did their job, sometimes the script just doesn't give them the best name. It is horror after all, even the classics have some pretty bad dialogue at best so..cut them some slack.

Perfect movie to watch with a few friends to crack some jokes at while still getting a decent viewing...split, right down the middle.
