poor direction
8 January 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Having read the book,and hearing that an adaptation was being made of this entertaining book I looked forward to seeing this movie.The screenplay sticks to main points,but the disappointing aspect of the movie was the direction.Usually in lower budget movies you can have a range of good acting and bad.The acting was bad and wooden to the point of ridiculous ,throughout.Atmosphere that was such a major strength in the book was nonexistent in this movie.This goes to show why horror movies are hard to make,without a proper director with skill you get this,not the classic this story deserved.I have faith Brian Keene's next adaption Dark Hollow being directed by Paul Campion will be a better effort.Paul Campion has proved in The Devil's Rock he knows how to create the proper atmosphere in this genre.

People use budget for an excuse,that's nonsense as atmosphere isn't something you have to budget for it's part of the construction process.It's just too bad we got this out of this nostalgic classic tisk tisk.
