Trivia

The "Bog Man" is heard speaking occasionally throughout the movie. A lot of what he says is nothing other than grunting, but several phrases are actually modern Irish Gaelic, specifically, "Uisce" (water) and "Saoirse" (freedom, usage is unrelated to the name of the female lead). See more »

Goofs

When the group are foraging for food around the cabin, one of them "digs up" a potato. However, it had clearly been placed there, as there were no roots attached and no potato plant leaves above ground. See more »

Quotes

Saiorse Reilly: [after crashing the car into a cow] Poor thing.
Professor David Wallace: Nah, I think I'm alright.
Saiorse Reilly: Not you! The cow!

One of the worst...
5 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So, so bad. I'll be honest, I didn't watch the whole movie; I simply couldn't put myself through the whole thing. It was that bad.

The acting is horrendous. The dialogue is simple minded. The effects are definitely not of a 2009 film, even a low budget one.

The attempt at humor was insultingly bad. There was one scene where a brute bog monster made fur slippers out of 2 dogs. Why the dogs were tied up in the middle of the road is beyond my comprehension. Why a mindless monster cares about footwear is another puzzle to the logical mind.

Take my advice and do not watch this movie; you will only hate yourself if you do.
