Freakin Awesome!
30 May 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One of the best horror films I've ever seen. It didn't shy away from the elements of horror like so many mainstream horror films do these days. It was unafraid to pack as much blood, guts, scares, suspense and action as was possible within a couple hours. I don't think any of the actors are going to be receiving and Oscar but they did a damn good job considering what type of film this is! Their performances really help maintain the atmosphere, especially Jane Levy as Mia. Not to mention she is fine as french wine! If you're a horror fan and haven't seen this movie get on it. I saw it 3 times in theatres and it got better every time.
