After Mikey has gone to bed, the others stay up drinking and playing games. One of the games has each player with a piece of paper with a person's name on it stuck to their forehead and they have to figure out whose name is on it. Guy's (Ethan Peck) paper says "Gregory Peck," his real-life grandfather. See more »

This movie started off painfully dull. Seven friends are on their way to the woods where there will be
A.) no telephones
B.) no cell phone service and
C.) no other human beings for miles.
Sound familiar? Oh yeah, and on the way to the cabin in the woods (so cliché) their van breaks down. So already I'm half checked out of this movie. The oddities began with the main character, Michael (Joseph Cross), and they only ramped up from there after the gang explored an abandoned mine.
The exposition and build up phase of this movie was dreadfully slow. We were treated to little tidbits of strange activities without giving us the full entree. Though the plot can be readily deduced with all of the hints throughout you still have to be patient to see how it all unfolds. This movie is not unique and it's been done better by others. I will say that the end picked up the pace and delivered a solid finish. Not all questions will be answered, as is typical with this type of movie, but enough to at least make you feel like you were invited to the party.
