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"
