Bad CG not scary
27 September 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Jimmy Fuller (Nicolas Wright) asks Melanie Blaine (Cindy Sampson) to come home to check on her sick father Howard (Bruce Dern). But there's something worst than sickness going on, Jimmy tells her that her father is actually suspected of murdering a 17 year old girl.

There is something in the woods. Only it's a horrible CG creation. It's horrible in the sense that it's unrealistic looking, and not scary. Part of it is the cheap CG. Part of it is the fact that it's all daylight shots. Everybody knows creepy creatures are scarier at night. The backstory and the mystery adds a little interest in the movie. If they had more money and better actors, they could have made a passable horror.
