The bolt action rifle used by some of the hunters is a Mossin Naggant. These were first produced in Imperial Russia from 1891 until the 1940s by the USSR and were also used in limited numbers by other Eastern European nations (including Finland). This places the time period of this film sometime after 1891. See more »

Nothing special, but more than a decent effort. Plus a few good actors are thrown into the mix. Stephen Rea being one of them. Acting is good overall. Nice make-up FX and nice story support that. There is not too much blood mind you and no nudity (just in case you were looking especially for those things, either because they interest you or appall you).
You can't or shouldn't compare this with a big budget movie though. It's what it's supposed to be: A nice little snack, an appetizer let's say, no pun intended. It is predictable and does not really make a secret of one of the (supposedly) big mysteries of the movie, but it still works nice enough
