At 1:00:48 into the movie, Hans is pointing a Mauser rifle at Tom, Jody and Samantha with the safety straight up. That would put a Mauser rifle on safe and lock the bolt in place as well as blocking the sights. At 1:17:39 Hans is threatening Hans with the safety straight up, again putting the rifle on safe, blocking the sights and locking the bolt. See more »
I got this movie from Netflix not knowing what to expect, and, boy, did it surprise me! It was one of those movies that works well-make that brilliantly-with a limited cast and setting and an eerie plot. It starts off with Sara Paxton robbing a convenience store. She winds up at a cabin in the middle of the woods with two strangers. They all have no explanation as to why they are there with rational explanations as to HOW. Why they are there is unraveled throughout the course of the movie. They cannot escape as each person seems strange to each other. Everything is revealed in clues, premonitions, and dialogue (sometimes humorously!) along the way as the creepy and scary atmosphere persists. The acting and writing were all great in this gem-I was very glad I got this. It was far from a classic but not bad either.
** 1/2 out of ****
