Storyline

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

low budget unconvincing effort
26 March 2012 | by (sheffield England) – See all my reviews

Jakob and Veith are two friends returning from the Napoleonic war. Vieth along with his Prussian friend (Jacob)heads for his native village, somewhere up in the Austrian mountains, to claim the cottage that belonged to his grandfather of which he is the sole inheritor. In the village and the woods surrounding it they encounter a terrible unknown force unheard of before.

Well the idea was not so lame as the movie making made it. Cheesy effects and low budget scenario is one thing but immature acting and waste of splendid scenery that could have been so vividly utilized had the director put a bit of more skill gets really painful when watching this movie. The acting isn't solid as is expected of most of the low budgets but there is a constant feeling throughout that a better everything could have been achieved.

The only thing engaging aside from the story thats terribly wasted to the point that it loses its efficacy is the scenic locations, the starting few minutes the area around the cottage the vibrant green over the hills is the only relief that one gets out of it.

My guess is if you have a heart for low budgets flimsy acting and have nothing else to watch then go for it, it might be successful in keeping you engaged for a while but don't expect any artistic brilliance or convincing effects coz the moment you shift to that mood you are gonna lose it.
