A fresh take on teens freaking out in the dark woods
Really enjoyed this one. Its hard to find a new angle on teens in trouble, but they've done it for sure. Here we have three teens going out for the weekend to a remote cabin for a little girl time before they split for college or where ever. As can happen, they work themselves into knots (dark woods freak-out) and you take the ride with them. I kept thinking as I was watching this film...This is okay. The situation is still slightly controllable...oops. Okay. I can deal with this. I'll just...oops. Okay. Not so bad yet....The perfect example of 'creating your own problems' - what teens do so well. And the acting. These three were perfectly casted. Isaw this as the late show at San Jose's Cinequest Film Festival this year. I hope that it gets wider distribution. It's completely edited and packaged. I can't think of anything they can improve upon with this.
