There are terrible people in the woods, not quite crazed redneck, not quite insane cannibalistic maniac, not quite a chainsaw wielding skin wearing gram pa's boy. This time it's a pair of psychotic siblings, who love to capture and torture their prey. Using physical and psychological torture methods, they bring their victims to the very edge of sanity, then release them back into the wooded area that surrounds their home with only two instincts intact: killing and survival.

A Great Way to Spend an Hour and a Half
2 July 2007 | by craigjunkie83See all my reviews

We all know the back-story of Survival. It was a $1200 film that used Ebay to get much of its funding. So... the verdict? Survival is damn fun! So it didn't cost a few million bucks and feature every actor from the WB, it did pack a fun punch and was one of the best backyard films I have ever seen.

That isn't to say that the movie was without its faults. A few of the actors are a little stiff, the special effects are a little cheesy, and there are a few small plot holes. But who the hell cares? Horror movies are supposed to be disturbing, entertaining, and above all - fun! This movie delivers on all these things.

The movie had good directing and editing. I can't wait to see what these guys have in store for us in the future. If they can make a movie this great for only $1200, imagine what they can do with a real budget?
