Eve thought she saw a snake out there.
Wait. She saw a snake? Did you get a good look at it?
It looked like a black snake.
A black mamba.
A black mamba?
Yeah. A big one.
Those things are like seriously dangerous.
Should we move camp?
It wasn't a black mamba. The mamba is an African snake. Only place you're going to see them are zoos and habitats. So we don't need to move. We're fine. Could have been a cottonmouth. They're pretty dangerous as well. Not as bad as a mamba but be careful guys.

Well, the story in "Dismal" was pretty alright, although it was amazingly straight forward and out of the typical Hollywood book of "How to make a Slasher Movie". There was nothing new or innovating here. Most stuff was something you have seen before, just served here in a new packaging.
As for the cast, nothing bad there. Lots of nice acting going on here. Especially the guy who played Dale (Bill Oberst, Jr.), he did a really nice job. And his character was so out there. It just worked so well.
The scenery and settings were alright as well, although the swamp and the cabin weren't really scary. Actually, the entire movie wasn't scary. Some nice death scenes, but nothing to make you jump.
The low point of the movie was the oh-so-fake effects on the fire and the explosion. It looked like a pathetic imitation of what it was supposed to be. But despite this, the movie proved to be entertaining enough - despite it being quite predictable.
If you are looking for a scary movie for the evening, this is not the movie to go for. But if you are looking for just another slasher-hybrid movie, then you should give this movie a chance.
