Storyline

After a young American backpacker goes missing in Europe, a group of journalists link his disappearance to a remote village in Poland. They travel there hoping to get the story, but as they unravel the secrets behind this mysterious village, they are suddenly pursued by hostile locals. Unable to escape, they soon become the next victims of ritualistic human sacrifice. Forced into the gruesome reality of true survival horror, the journalists soon discover that this village hides a much darker secret than they could ever imagine. Written by Skid Gasket

original horror for 2010
25 July 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

More intelligent than many horror films. Yes it is a horror film, but it is not all gore and guts. Note that it does not fall into the other end of the spectrum as just a thriller either (there is some blood). It is an original, well done production that strikes me as unlike most of the horror of 2010.

The strong points would be better acting than many films of the genre, characters that are smarter than most horror movie characters (they still do some stupid things, but they don't know they are in a horror movie), and some nice creepy effects.

If you watch it then be aware that when people are not speaking English and there are no subtitles this is intentional. There is nothing wrong with the version you are watching. Hang in there. Context will tell you what you need to know.
