I don't get the comments on "Timber falls"... sure, make-up and setting are nice, acting is decent but thats about it. The plot is a joke... a couple goes hiking in the woods, they meet strange hillbillies who surprise them while trying to have romantic mountain scape sex. Now after being degraded, which clichée comes first (OK, right after the couple lost in the woods clichée)?? Yep, the blonde nurse forces her friend to get rid of his bullets... great. Now lets be unarmed and have some more sex in the tent while watched by sickos and then get kidnapped next day. Yippiee... kidnapped by a god fearing freak family, one with a burnt face and a creepy sickle and the others want the two to make them a baby. Oh yeah... crazy family in the woods, kidnapped couple... Wrong Turn, TCM, Wolf Creek anyone?? Misery, Capitivity anyone?? I can't count on how many tries they had on this last year alone and "Timber falls" also tries to incorporate the now so popular torture sequences. Since the crazy folks want a kid and the couple doesn't want to go on with the mountain scape/tent-fun... well, its torture time! Its all been there exactly the same... the opening reminded me a hell lot of "Wolf creek". Most of all this is technically well done but scripting wise extremely cheesy and at no time chilling, shocking or loaded with any suspense. The kills suck big time... one guy gets an axe in his head in a trashy way I have't seen in a while and when crazy lady gets beheaded... damn that looks lame and computer- generated. And when you think you could have spend your time a lot better you get an ending thats first of all totally unbelievable and Hollywood happy romance and then even tops off with a more unbelievable return of dead and burned sickle man in the last shot (Oh no, please don't you dare to do a sequel!). Hell no... is that a serious movie? Come on, there are so many better movies with nearly the same plot... "Storm warning" comes to mind since its been released around the same time and delivers the violence far more realistic and serious way than this cheap try with a million holes in its paper thin and ripped off plot. Stay away!
