Decent but unspectacular
20 August 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

A troubled policeman and his teenage daughter find that the rash of mysterious deaths in the small town they live to move on from a personal tragedy is caused by a marauding Indian spirit and race to stop it before it consumes more in the town.

A lot better than what it sounds like, though there's still some big flaws in here, mainly in the quick-cut editing that keeps the action really hard to make out and a lot of problems with the story, like keeping the father/daughter interactions more rooted in a Lifetime drama and basically shoe-horning the monster into the finale for a brief, barely-worthwhile encounter as well as keeping them off-screen and really mysterious as far as their behavior and motivations are concerned, but it's all made up for with a fantastic creature when we see it, tons of gore and lots of nudity, as well as a really worthwhile tactic of keeping their appearances limited to emerging from fog-shrouded tree-lines, so it's attacks have some atmosphere to work with. Far, far better than it should be, but still with some flaws.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Nudity, sex scenes and drug use
