I've given this 9 out of 10 because I was quite transfixed by the story and the characters. It is essentially a road movie with a hint of The Wicker Man, though this is not a midsummer tale; bleak winter highland shots are well used. At times it is almost whimsical and it's not the most consistent of movies. However the atmosphere never lets up and the denouement may surprise you. If I was asked to award marks for technical proficiency it would get about six but, hey, that didn't stop The Blair Witch Project from being successful! The cast were great,especially the chap playing Vicente who was intense and explosive. I constantly had the wrong idea about the characters in this movie and that was refreshing.
