Storyline

Christine takes her best friend with another couple for a final vacation when she goes to close up and sell her family's hunting lodge in the remote woods of Northern Georgia...but it's also the scene of her worst childhood trauma. Things get worse when it turns out the lodge is in use by an ex-military sniper, Farragut and his three accomplice, the Loomis brothers, as a hideout who just escaped from a military prison. A hostage situation turns to hunting human prey as Christine and her friends Molly and Jack escape into the woods - the sadistic killers picking them off one-by-one, with Christine confronting worse and worse fears at every turn, realizing, and finally learning after meeting a medicine healer, Obeah ...it's her own fears that have drawn this nightmare upon her. And only if she overcomes them can she save her life and sanity. The spiritual message of the movie is based on "The Law of Attraction". Written by Chris Soth

Ace Cruz and the American Dream
6 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

(Note: This review is based off of a screener from November 2009. The released film may be different.) Christine (Katie Fountain), an aptly named Christian woman who has inherited a considerable amount of wealth, is on vacation for the weekend with her friends. What could have been a fun and romantic weekend turns to chaos when a deranged military man (Michael Madsen) and his redneck goons decide to take the group hostage, with no qualms about executing a few or all of them in the process.

Writer-director-actor Ace Cruz says that he is living the American Dream. I find that a reasonable expression of his success. While his films may not have wide acclaim yet, Cruz is still a rising star and with a little fine tuning here or there he might break into the major leagues. Keep your eye on him.

I have to call to potential viewers' attention the defects of this film. The special effects are particularly poor: a bad lightning effect, cheesy hillbilly teeth, and a horrible gunshot animation are notable examples. Also, the audio is not well-recorded, at times echoing and at others seemingly dubbed too strongly. These shortcomings can be blamed on the budget most likely, but finicky viewers will be bothered by them and it's important to be aware of this.

Those criticisms aside, this film has its strong points. The general plot is interesting and the action is high. The girls, particularly the one who plays Molly ("American Pie" veteran Natasha Lyonne), are hot (sorry to be sexist, but this helps a film). What I found to be the most brilliant idea of the film was a scene where the goons were attempting to find the cell phones in the house by calling from other cell phones. I have remarked in the past about how cell phones have become (understandably) ubiquitous in horror films, but this was the most creative way I've seen of removing them from the equation.

And, of course, the film's biggest draw: Michael Madsen. He may not have the star power he once had, but like Tom Sizemore he will still bring in a certain cult audience. With good reason: Madsen's sadistically evil, yet carefully measured performances rarely if ever fail. This is no exception -- every scene he has, he steals. And that is not a complaint; I could watch this man for hours on end. (Do I even have to mention how awesome Michael Berryman is?) I think this film is worth watching if you're into thrillers and hostage films, and especially if you're an aspiring filmmaker. Certainly, you could pick a more polished film to watch, but I think Cruz is an interesting director because he is growing, and watching his growth really reveals something about the craft of directing. And, frankly, as a critic I must confess that if I directed I wish if I could make something of this caliber.
