Two handcrafted knives were used in this movie. One of said knives disappeared during the production of this film. See more »


The blue ray release in 2015 is done as a full frame transfer so much information at top and bottom of the image is seen which reveals several boom microphones in the film. The film should have been transferred 16 by 9 which would leave the booms off screen like they were intended to be. See more »

Watchable Low-budget Slasher Flick
10 January 2018 | by Sammy_Sam_SamSee all my reviews

Having read the reviews on here I wasn't really sure what to expect with this film, but I'm glad I watched it. It's certainly no masterpiece, but not every film needs to be and considering what must've been a very low budget, it's a solid effort. The acting is hit and miss with some people putting in a pretty good performance, while others are quite frankly terrible. But that's often part of the charm with films of this sort and anyone who has seen a low-budget slasher won't find it too distracting.

What surprised me most perhaps is the look of the film, which is very nicely shot in places. It's all straightforward and there's nothing particularly spectacular, but it didn't look bad and one shot in particular next to the lake really did catch my eye. The score most certainly deserves a special mention, as I thought it was brilliant and fit the movie perfectly. More generally the film has a somber feeling and isn't fast-paced, but personally that has never bothered me with slasher flicks - I tend to watch them for the fact they aren't going to work my brain too much at the end of a tough day. The gore levels aren't particularly high, but there are some good screams. There's also not enough struggling from the victims for my liking (the mark of a decent kill!), but much better than a lot of other slasher flicks I've seen. So all in all, for me it's a 5/10. If you enjoy slashers and like a film with charm then it's probably worth a watch. Fans of Notting Hill and superhero movies should probably steer clear though.
