scary film, great ending (no spoilers)
19 November 2005 | by ShimmySnailSee all my reviews

Now HERE is a great horror film. I haven't been scared since 28 Days Later or, to a lesser extent, the Ring/Uzumaki series. I gave this film an 8 only because some of the dialogue is trite, and they use some of the "gotcha" gimmicks where the sound increases sharply for an instant to make you jump out of your seat. Other than that very common horror movie tactic, it is a solidly enjoyable film.

The story is great. It proceeds along a very formulaic horror movie story at first. Four or five annoying young adults on their way to a sybaritic party in the middle of nowhere. One is blind, one is a foreign student, one is the blonde, etc. One of them is being secretly pursued by an ex-pharmacy student/drug dealer he recently ripped off who is rumored to have killed others who crossed him. The car breaks down, nobody comes to help, cel phones are dead, and then BAD THINGS start to happen, usually preceded by the choking odor of decomposing bodies (hence, the title). At first these things are only observed, and then they start happening to our protagonists. The ending, however, will probably greatly surprise you, I know it did me, and I'm used to surprise endings.

The acting is good, the special effects are top notch, it's scary, and the story moves at a good pace. Definitely check it out.
