The characters of Patricia and Lucy were originally written for writer/director Jason Torrey's friend Jeffrey Thomas and his son Colin Thomas and the characters were male. The Lucy character, even as the alternative male version, was written as autistic because Thomas's son Colin is autistic. The subject of autism interests Torrey quite a bit, one of his three daughters was diagnosed as autistic in 2008. Torrey explains, "I wanted to have a character that sees the killer in the act, but doesn't quite know how to articulate what was seen, but knows full well that danger is near and she and her mother must get somewhere safe. Having an autistic child myself I knew that I could write this in, make it plausible and have it work on both and intellectual and emotional level." The parts eventually went to a mother and daughter pair of local actors, this is why the characters were made female. But the two actresses ended up leaving the film before photography commenced. The part of Lucy went to Popi Kapiris, who met the director at a cast and crew meet and greet they held on July 4th, 2010 (the day before principal photography began) and the part of Patricia was given to Torrey's wife Sherry, who took the role reluctantly, but ended up turning in one of the best performances in the film.

From the opening sequence, this film takes hold of your mind. The violence of this film is in stark contrast to its beautiful New England setting. The story is about a group of small town young adults, connected by various levels of friendship/ relationships. In the course of a day or so, the antagonist makes his way through the town and the group. The characters are well developed, the timing and pace are what you would expect of greater films. The movie leaves more than a few questions unanswered, but this actually works in the film's favor. The acting was very good all the way around. Just don't expect too many happy endings, because this is a serious bit of horror... SB
