This is a solid little indi film about a family who are terrorised by a nutter out in the countryside. That is pretty much it.
The acting, camera work and set is very good considering the tight budget. There isn't much substance to the movie and the plot gets a bit frayed (it seems bodies pile up unnoticed in the countryside quite easily) but it is tense in places and although annoying you do engage with the central characters.
The film is not terrifying there is no gratuitous gore or nudity -must admit we were a little disappointed on that point as Kierston Wareing oozes sex appeal.
Don't expect too much from this and you won't get let down. I enjoyed it but I wouldn't recommend selling the farm to watch it.
