Storyline

Kim and her boyfriend Matt have just broken up, but they travel together to a cottage nearby a lake to spend the weekend with their friends Eve, Dash and his wife Amber and Baker and his new girlfriend Lily. The atmosphere becomes heavy with the situation between Kim and Matt, and one of them suggests them to play "Dead Mary". Matt, Eve and Dash summon the evil witch repeating her name three times in front of a mirror with a candle. Along the night, Matt hears weird noises, is killed and returns to life, while part of the group is possessed by the fiend. Without knowing who is possessed, the rest of the group fights to survive. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The script originally featured an actual Bloody Mary who, when summoned by the mirror game, rose from the depths of the lake to murder the characters one by one. Director Robert Wilson decided that it would be more interesting if the evil force was never seen, but instead could manifest itself in any one of the old friends gathered at the cabin, thus making the film more a creepy paranoia piece and less a supernatural slasher film. However, many film websites still make reference to the film's original (and now incorrect) synopsis. See more »

Goofs

As the girl (Amber) is about to burn her possessed boyfriend in the shed, she turns back in to the shed from the rain - from a face dripping with water to dry skin within a few seconds and proceeds to light a match taken from a box that was equally doused with heavy rain water moments before.

Quotes

Lily: It's just going to be a bunch of funny stories about people I never met before, and will never meet, right?
Baker: Probably... maybe... definitely.

Dead Mary - where aaare youuu?!
15 March 2007 | by modesty51See all my reviews

A group of old mates from school spend the weekend at a cabin in the woods (original huh?!), and kills time by yapping on and on about relationships and who's screwing who. After a few drinks one of them remembers an old game - Dead Mary - and the suspense begins.

This could have been a rather entertaining horror flick, but leaves you disappointed. The characters were okay and the story line had potential, but: no blood to talk about, no really scary scenes, no sitting on the edge of your seat and especially no Dead Mary! Trying hard to stay awake for an ending that could possibly have saved the movie from sucking totally turned out to have been in vain, 'cause the ending was the biggest disappointment of them all. Not only are you clueless of what it means, but also frustrated to bits 'cause you've wasted almost one and a half hours on this crap! Considering myself to be quite a genre knower I believe this is one of the worst, or should I say BORING, horror flicks I've seen. It didn't even make me laugh...
