Storyline

Rachel hasn't slept for a while. A few years back, her brother was mysteriously killed while she and a group of friends partied by the lake side. Three years later, she and her friends must return to the same lake to finally put the nightmares to rest. To come to grips with what happened. To admit that it was just an accident. But someone is waiting for them. Someone who knows the truth. Someone who wants revenge. As night descends on their Memorial Day getaway, each individual must face an unstoppable killing machine with a serious hatchet to bury. As the body count rises, Rachel must discover whose face lies behind the murderous mask. Is it just a stranger in the woods? Or is it someone she already knows? This Memorial Day, the screaming doesn't stop until the last body drops. Written by Marcos Gabriel

Uninspired, weak slasher effort
11 March 2013 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Returning to the campsite where her brother disappeared years ago, a troubled woman and her friends find themselves the victims of a masked killer's blood-soaked rampage and try to solve the mystery of the killer's identity in order to get away from the area alive.

This was an exceptionally uninspired slasher that doesn't have a lot going for it and isn't all that great. About the only thing here that really works is the body count and the kills, which tie in together pretty well after you realize what's going on, but it's only after an explanation from the killer that it's known so that's going against it as we. In addition to all that, you've got the fact that the mystery angle, which is supposedly the high-point of the whole film, being really strung out and feels like too many twists were put together to sell itself, which doesn't make much sense and really sticks out. The last problem here is the beginning where we get to know the group, but instead of being character-knowledge it's just drawn-out scenes that aren't that interesting and aren't all that much designed to do that, leaving a little bit of a sour taste when getting to know the group at first. Some of the stalking scenes in the middle are admittedly pretty tense, or at least they could've been had the film not been so dark as to render everything hardly visible, at one point turning into a total blackout on screen despite sounds on the soundtrack, which is another problem to overcome. Overall, a rather disappointing slasher.

Rated Graphic Language, Graphic Violence, Nudity and drug use.
