First of all, this film is the first horror for a long time to give me chills. Some scenes are genuinely spooky. Unfortunately it peters out in the last third! The setting is perfect, a young woman isolated in a forest, completely alone. It is built up slowly, but felt just right, the early 'shock' moments work well. In fact, it built up perfectly, so much that I was thinking this could be a great film! But then, there is always 'the twist'. Most twists are at least intriguing, some are brilliant, this one kills the film. And the ending is well....kinda not in the film.

If I was to draw a graph on the films enjoyment level, it would be a slow consistent incline, then a sharp decline in the last 3rd, kinda like a ramp.

could of been so much better.

5/10
