Austria-Hungary 1813: Jacob and Veith return home from the Napoleonic war. Their road leads to the remote mountain village Pahlbach. The two newcomers encounter a frosty reception - and as the night has barely passed, they already understand why: In the woods around the village a strange evil is brewing mischief. Unknown creatures of extraordinary violence and cunning, lure the men into the woods and make a silent demand: In order to further propagate, the beasts claim women's bodies. While Jacob refuses immediately and calls out the fight, Veith is still uncertain: The enemy appears to overpowering. Maybe they should try to come to terms. Progressing events put the courage and humanity of the two men to the test and threaten to shatter their friendship. But Jacob Veith and are not the only ones to whom the demand was made. The battle lines are hardening - and in a single bloody night, the future of the whole place is at stake ... Written by Ken Gooruh

They fooled's little more then a glorified student film
24 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

(This review was deleted by IMDb based on an abuse report filed by another user)


How odd. Well, the truth is indeed a bitter pill. And as such, this review was deleted because the bitterness really got to someone. Well, tough. What sort of a world do these dunces with no consequences to bad film making?

Here is the previous review again, in all its glory:

If you are reading this, you too read the storyline and thought there was a slight chance it might have potential.

Nope! Once again, a low-low-LOW-budget studenty film is decorated and packaged to look like a legitimate production. Cheesy acting (yet again, it's comical how they make no effort whatsoever to make the dialogue and body-language less like 2010. This is a PERIOD PIECE, you complete noob Stefan Müller).

To make it even worse, as if that wasn't enough, it's shot on pro-sumer camcorders, and BOY does it show. With so many affordable options in high-end digital and even film, why on earth would someone shoot something other then a family picnic on that type of camcorder? Well, mainly because they don't have the skills, you could argue.

But, as much as it sucks, I was mainly angered that I entered it expecting a "real" film, as opposed to this amateur project. And as an amateur project, you are forced to give it a much higher rating then you might have otherwise.

By comparison to ANY feature film from nearly any writer/director with a bit of experience, this gets ZERO stars (if I were able to give it that). But as a student film, I suppose it deserves a decent amount. I am not an instructor, so I have no idea. Umm.....4 stars? 5? Lets give it a letter grade. I recall from way back when, if you completed production and editing, and the sound is OK, you at least get a C, even if it's terrible, based on the difficulty for an amateur to actually complete a feature-length film. So there, I'll go with that. It gets a C.

But if this guy isn't actually a student, and this is the best he can do (hey, I didn't read up on just looked, sounded, and felt like a student film), then he really needs to find another job.

This film tries way too hard, and fails, at emulating a typical American horror genre film. He would have been much smarter to attempt infusing his film with a bit more individuality and/or flavor it with something unique to his ethnicity, instead of trying to play "grown-up" and failing at copying bad American films.

Students, learn from this.

As I've written before, the old-arsed saying: "I'd rather fail at my own ideas, then succeed with someone else's" applies here. Except, it takes that horrible scenario one step further into a river of poop... when you FAIL at someone ELSE'S idea. That is about as low as it gets.

Directing is about taste. YOU decide how brilliant or ham-fisted every aspect of production and editing will be viewed. And as such, this guy needs to either take some more classes, or enter the world of (local) low-budget commercials and PSA's.
