Produced in an experimental shooting style, this murder-mystery features a cast of actors who were not allowed to see the script. The actors' choices interactively changed the shape of the story.

Trivia

Though the entire film was shot in Croco, Italy, for some reason said events presented to have taken place in Turkey! In the beginning of the movie, a single greeting in Turkish took place between the hitchhiker and the driver. That was about it. See more »

Enjoyable outcome for the expert and a decent enough effort
19 April 2016 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Arriving at a strange Turkish town, a group of friends attempt to play a game taught to them by a hitchhiker which soon turns deadly when they begin disappearing one-by-one and must find the reason why they're being targeted and get out alive.

This one wasn't all that bad and had some good parts about it. Among the better parts here is the fact that there's some rather enjoyable times to come from it's atmosphere and surroundings that this one really plays with which makes for a wholly enjoyable time here. Playing this inside the kind of decrepit, crumbling open-air castle- grounds that this one does gives it the absolutely perfect old-world air of neglect and disuse which is absolutely amazing at generating the suspense of the situation simply with the kind of foreign atmosphere that's required here. In turn, when this one turns over into a stylish thriller about the group being targeted and then finding out there's a savage killer haunting the area it lets this one get even creepier with the early set-ups here with the video- camera and the pictures showing something happened there makes it seem like an even creepier place here which really gets worked over nicely with the different slasher film sequences that come up. From the discovery of the bodies strewn over the location and the different scenes of them being held captive in the different settings within makes for a great time here that gives this a really enjoyable touch that coincides nicely with their growing hysteria and general confusion over what's happening there which manages to give this a rather fun and enjoyable time. There's some flaws here, mainly in the fact that this one doesn't really get to the slashing until way too late into the film. This one manages to go until nearly an hour mark before it starts in on the different slashing that occurs within here, fixating mostly on the dull interactions of the group with their petty and bland fixations here from the father not trusting the hitchhiker around his daughter, the main couple arguing over their travel plans and how everyone's dealing with the cramped location that all hold the film's killer down from appearing earlier which is quite a struggle to get through. These are more problematic in the sense that they come off rather lethargic and slow-going rather than the film's centerpiece scene where they confront each other over who's the potential killer within them which is filled with utterly unappealing moments that don't mean anything and makes it so hard to care as they all turn on each other over flimsy means. Lastly, once the killer is revealed and the motivation given, it makes no sense as there's no build-up or real rationale throughout here which tends to make it seem all the more troubling than it really is and could've used some fleshing out than what's given here. Otherwise this one here wasn't all that bad.

Rated R: Violence, Graphic Language and sexual themes.
