Storyline

Nursery teacher Jenny and her boyfriend Steve, escape for a romantic weekend away. Steve, planning to propose, has found an idyllic setting: a remote lake enclosed by woodlands and seemingly deserted. The couple's peace is shattered when a gang of obnoxious kids encircles their campsite. Reveling in provoking the adults, the gang steals the couple's belongings and vandalizes their car leaving them completely stranded. When Steve confronts them, tempers flare and he suffers a shocking and violent attack. Fleeing for help, Jenny is subject to a brutal and relentless game of cat-and-mouse as she desperately tries to evade her young pursuers and find her way out of the woods.

Unsane, frustrating.... and ridiculous
24 November 2009 | by nextgen31See all my reviews

Pointless movie. Budget is descent, actors are quite good, but the scenario is..... well, there is no real scenario actually: Characters are pure evil, with no motivation, no "reason to do so". The "bad guys" are animals, the "good guys" are in love, rich, and they'll get married soon... so cute. But the good guys get butchered with no reason, ... by kids... and their parents. So if you look at this movie, you'll get involved, you'll need revenge, and you'll get nothing but frustration. Oh very nice, thank you Mr James Watkins, and welcome to the black list.

Note that the directing job is not so bad (also by James Watkins). So the question is: is this movie co-written, or co-directed ? :) The answer with "The Descent, part 2", not seen yet (but fearing the worst...)

To sum up in french: "Grosse, grosse merde"
