Did You Know?


Russell: I clean up, grab a beer, go sit in the ol' rockin' chair and watch TV. You know, I haven't paid that bill in over a year. All I get is white noise. It's like ants fighting... I sit there every night watching ants fighting until I fall asleep... and in the morning I get up and do it all over again... and that's all there is. I got nothing left... but white noise.

A Unique Psychological Horror Experience
18 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a breath of fresh air and among genre films I've seen this year, you won't find any better.

October and Russell are an estranged son and father (respectively), coming together (what seems like) for the first time in quite some time. A weekend out in the woods to repair bonds gets off on the wrong foot when Russell hastily puts down the family dog despite the efforts of October to save him. Clearly this a family at odds and something darker is lurking within their souls.

The weekend to reconnect carries on and October and Russell head out to the neighboring woods which surround Russell's home. But things quickly derail when Russell sees a strange figure in the woods and steps off a cliff and breaks his leg. October finds him and drags him to safety.

The remainder of our film involves father and son stranded in the woods, trying to reconnect, but with the ever present threat of something lurking, out there to get them should they try and escape the confines. Flashbacks clue us in as to what exactly happened to this family. And as the final denouement hits, our film ends in terrifying fashion as two worlds collide and our monsters make the men face their greatest fears.

With fantastic performances all around (both Sean Elliott and genre vet Lance Henriksen shine), you won't find a better genre feature this year. The film will wear on your psyche and stay with you for days. Highly recommended.
