If your looking for a genuinely shocking horror/thriller this is for you
This movie contains an incredible set of performances from a young cast, who create an eerie atmosphere throughout. Clever ideas behind the movie originating from its adaption from a CB short story. Not gory throughout but makes up for it towards end, shocking scenes that show up modern Hollywood slashers as childish. Lingers with the viewer for days afterwards. - Don't watch if very affected by ideas of horror and organ mutilation. Slow build up to climax, but not slow movie with every scene having importance to overall feel of movie and chemistry between characters.
Highly recommend to horror lovers- watch out for these natural horror actors in the future, except possibly Jackson Rathbone who put in a good performance but seems more mainstream than rest of actors.
