This movie sounded promising especially as we thought Miacheal Fassbender could hardly be found in a bad movie. Oh, we were wroooong! The big emphasis on the innocence of the character of Jenny and the kindergarten with all the sweet kids should have tipped us off, but oh no! we were keen to go on.
The movie goes on for several scenes through the exact same routine of the movies of similar themes. Nothing happening on the first night, the couple underestimating the threats and taking every sign and red flag for granted etc. Still at this point that could be overlooked as this is the kind of movie you've picked to watch after all.
However, very quickly the story takes a huge unreasonable turn and just keeps going downward in a path were nothing can be explained by any rules of reason whatsoever, to the point were you are enraged with being taken advantage of in this way and having your nerves wrecked for no reason.
As luck would have it, things don't even pick up near the end and just when you think this movies has hurt your mind enough, you will be tossed into an unbelievavle blackhole of mental torture, and then some. I find it very hard to imagine what demographic exactly would enjoy this movie. The cast and crew maybe?!
