Cookers is everything the "Blair Witch Project "was supposed to be!
"Blair Witch" was hailed as the pinnacle of ultra-low budget, ultra-small cast indie horror, but "Cookers" simply blows it out of the water. The suspense builds perfectly from start to finish in this film (both suspense between the characters and their surroundings and between the characters themselves) to an exhilarating crescendo. This movie cost next to nothing to make, yet the budget is reflected in neither the direction nor the acting. The direction may put some people off, but it so accurately captures the frenetic, drugged-out mood, that one cannot help but be drawn into the movie's very uncomfortable world. Brad Hunt is bound to start turning heads with several roles in upcoming major releases.
More than being a horror ("suspense" or "terror" might be a more accurate description) it's a compelling story with good dialogue that is flawlessly delivered. There really isn't a dull moment. All in all, my only complaint about this film is its flimsy resolution--that being said, I can't recommend this movie highly enough, even to those who typically shy away from the horror genre.
