Desolation: Bland but passable
13 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Going into Desolation I had no idea what to expect, it was a nameless pick & mix movie for me.

It tells the story of a pair of friends and a teenage boy who go hiking in the woods only to be stalked by a mysterious figure in black.

It's very paint by number stuff but is done well enough to be entertaining.

Our delightful stalker has no gimmick, he has no motivation and I really didn't like that. This Rob Zombie looking git had no character at all which hurt the film.

Ultimately it delivers provided you aren't seeking originality or surprises. Its copy and paste the movie with every cliche in the book, but is just good enough to get past that.

The Good:

Well made

Fairly tense

Decent finale

The Bad:

Nothing original

Dull antagonist

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Maybe the killers motive was that kid being really annoying
