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:
Revealing mistakes: 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 »

Puzzling, 8 August 2009
Author: filmgods from United States

After watching this film, I had to ask someone else what genre it was supposed to be. It's really unclear. My gut reaction was horror, but the music, locations, and "creature" aren't scary. In fact, the music works to diffuse any tension that might have been accidentally created. This movie feels like the filmmakers meant for this to be a drama and at the last minute decided to play up some horror aspects since that genre is popular right now. Either way, Vinnie Jones doesn't deserve to be in this film, and with the exception of a few moments when the cinematography is pretty well done, this film doesn't lend itself to a single viewing. I believe the people at the helm of this one need more practice.
