Up to date remake of the Shining involving a group of friends isolated during a winter storm.
7 June 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Psychological/suspenseful movie despite its shortcomings, namely dialogue. There were a couple scenes when I wondered how the actors delivered their lines with a straight face. My favourite line went something like, "Bears hibernate for the winter. The only animal you have to worry about this weekend is me." The music could be hit or miss but I felt it added to the creepy atmosphere. Unfortunately the movie finishes right after the climax and is very open ended. I would have liked a little more resolution because I enjoyed the characters. If you enjoyed this movie but wanted to see more blood and gore I would recommend "Dead Snow".
