Goofs

In the opening scene, shot across the bridge into the village, across the bottom of the screen are the words "Shade Gap, PA, 1966." Right above those words is a grey pickup truck parked in a driveway - a 1968 Ford F100. To the right, almost totally obscured by bushes, you can see the tail lights of a Chevy Blazer. See more »

Good Film
24 June 2011 | by pombearkingSee all my reviews

This film was quite surprising, it seemed like it was going to just be another thriller but because it was created with a true story witch gave it a chilling effect and true story's are always good to watch. The basic story line is that a girl gets kidnapped by a redneck and is taken into the woods the film follows the story of trying to find her and the strain it has on her family meanwhile you learn more about the demented mind of the kidnapper overall this movie is pretty good,acting is good and i aren't saying its a top hit but its definitely worth a watch

overall:7/10

it would have got higher but being a true story its best not to over exaggerate.
