If someone wants to call 911, but has no signal, it is federal law that another provider with a good signal puts the call through. So, the audience knows there is no signal/provider in the area (at 23 minutes) when Chris tries to phone 911 and tells his dad that there is no service. At 25 minutes, Ray (dad) tries to call while walking to the parking lot, but again, there is no service. Later on in the movie, deep in the forest, one of the bad guys uses his laptop multiple times to push the plot foreword. For example, he watches a streaming video. The plot does not explain how this is possible, since the audience assumes there is no service at all for calling or internet. See more »

Very poorly written dialogue makes it unbearable...
This is proof that an otherwise good movie can be hampered by not enough script re-writes (or maybe too many?). The dialogue is laughable and laudable.
The writer's style is such that the lines are delivered in a very staccato style: A quips to B, B responds with quip to A. There are no real "conversations" in the movie, and it makes it had to develop any of the back-story of the characters. "Quips" about someone's past are usually quickly dismissed into the script, never to be seen again.
Some of the movie made me laugh, it was so poorly written. In a scene where a death occurs, there was no emotional outburst from their family member. It was crazy, and felt very rushed, like the director or writer was trying to push us forward quickly to the next scene, without slowing the camera down and exploring the actor's emotions.
Badly written. C-
