Storyline

Six teenagers go up to an old cabin in the woods for a vacation get-away. When they get there, strange things start happening. The cabin was used as a torture/execution site in medieval times. A young man named Jared, who was convicted of killing his wife, was tortured to death. Only thing was, he was innocent, and his soul is now trapped in that very cabin. His soul can't be released until the cabin is destroyed. Jared placed a spell on Earth, in the year 1998 AD, to make Earth devoid of light and life. One by one, the kids are turned into bloodthirsty, merciless zombie-deadites, as Jared possesses their very bodies, in an attempt to make them destroy the cabin. The helpless kids fight for their very lives against what used to be friends and lovers. Written by Paul Klein (writer/producer/director) <KleinmaxFilms@hotmail.com>

(One wanna be horror)+(A tired Story)=(A Waste of Time)
29 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Okay. Where do I begin? Well, let's start with the cast. Joe nobodys. Okay, now on to the direction. Well,there are some pretty good camera angles and some mediocre chase scenes. And the story: Some kids go to a cabin in the woods to party and have fun, but run into (Gasp!) a killer! Why is he after them? I still don't know. But, was it a good movie? No. But, I would recommend it if it was to come on T.V. I guess that this movie is kind of comparable to, say, Cabin Fever (2002)--but, I warn you: It's not nearly as good as Cabin Fever. It has the typical B-Movie production, so don't expect Friday the 13th--or even Sleepaway Camp. Don't waste your money. 2/10
