urban classic
23 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not quite sure what kind of budget this film was shot on, but I'd definitely recommend it to die hard horror fans. Contains the usually overkill of gore yet done in a fresh style that is hard to deny, plus being based on true events keeps the excitement rolling for days. Director is Tarrantino-ish, I'm definitely hyped to see future work. Acting seems just decent enough, but true director talent and storytelling amazingly shine through the length of this slasher. I can absolutely see this one becoming an urban classic. So many of these slashers take place out in the boonies, it's a breath of fresh air when I see the plots that are actual events. The version I saw was an early screener that appeared to be filmed in HD with a fuzzy ending, which can only mean they could as well be alternates yet to be seen.
