Storyline

Kayla and Jesse loved spending their childhood summers at their grandfather's secluded cottage in the pristine mountains of rural New England. Now, fifteen years since their last visit, the sisters return along with Kayla's boyfriend Dean and his best-friend Tobe for a much-needed break from their busy lives in New York. But when a simple fishing accident leads the foursome to follow an unexplored shortcut through the woods, the lives of this small group of friends are shattered forever as they suddenly find themselves facing the shocking and terrible curse of one of America's most haunted places.

A professional but not polished horror/thriller
26 February 2009 | by interleave1See all my reviews

A slightly better than passable B grade movie

The storyline isn't bad but never seems to be completely fulfilled. Nevertheless, the movie kept me interested till the end. So, let's start with the acting:

The acting, overall, wasn't bad with the exception of a couple of minor characters. While professional, the acting lacked polish but was overall believable (for the most part).

Plot development: Plot development was definitely lacking in this film with the main characters doing some truly unexplainable things in this movie. It seems like the screenwriter went out of his way to make the plot less than believable. From the scene where one of the characters inexplicably removes the car keys from his friends backpack (preventing escape of course) to the placement of a butchers knife in the bedroom, leaving a convenient, if inexplicable, murder weapon, the plot elements were not placed well. All of these things could have been accomplished without resorting to cliché' or unbelievable behavior.

Photography: I thought this was the most professional part of the film. The camera work was very well done and allowed for some excitement in what could have otherwise been some rather boring scenes.

Directing: I think the director did the best with what he had to work with.

I think a slightly better script with better placement of plot elements to move the story along would have given this movie a much better rating but I still enjoyed it overall.
