This movie had a strong finish which was sorely needed. Even with the strong finish it couldn't dig itself out of the tons of clichés it buried itself in.
The movie was a very typical terrorizing movie (an innocent person is terrorized by some wack job killer). In this case it was a young woman and the wack jobs were four. They were a part of some demented cult in which they hunt and kill well off, pretty, thin (and apparently White) young women they call "Kristy".
I've seen plenty of good movies in which a woman fights off or seeks revenge on her attackers (I Spit on Your Grave immediately comes to mind), this was not a good one. It followed the cliché terrorizing killer manuscript (i.e. superfluous deaths of non-essential characters because they are obviously weaker, several illogical decisions and the universe not operating like it normally does).
Without going terribly deep into this movie I just want to rid the movie world of one cliché. This is not my top cliché but we have to start somewhere. Stop, cease, desist with the protective dog running off into the darkness barking only to become yelping and finally doggie corpse. How many brave and heroic dogs must lose their lives in this senseless manner? I demand an end to this blatant dislike and discrimination against protective dogs everywhere.
