Disposable thriller without too much worthwhile
20 September 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

While staying at a remote countryside lodge, a man and his girlfriend's planned weekend of carefree sex is halted when they learn the mysterious handyman has more on his mind than fixing up the place and must escape from his murderous clutches.

Predictable, barely worthwhile effort that has pretty much everything we've seen in these types of films before and nothing at all new or original to this. It plays out pretty much as we expect it to, the ignoring of the obvious signs to continue on partying, the failure to recognize when they're in danger, and most of all it takes about an hour before he snaps and turns psycho, so there's nothing at all that's going on for the majority of the movie before the ending, which instead of dealing out torture, revolves around chasing, beating and running away, leaving little blood and gore involved as well. Still, this could've been quite fine, with a fine setting and some sleaze that had the finale chasing around the compound been a bit more enjoyable. A major letdown in most regards.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and Nudity.
