Good creature film aided by a bleak landscape but marred by a weak background story.
I first saw this in 2011 on a dvd which I own.
Revisited it recently.
The film started off very well and i thot it might b a good thriller like Kurt Russell's Breakdown but never mind it took another approach n succeeded as a horror film albeit with a few flaws.
A young female Charlotte, probably after her break goes for a road trip all alone and gets harassed by a group of bikers at a snack store to which she just ignores n rides off on the empty road only to see the bikers behind and a hitchhiker Max asking for a lift.
She gives the lift to Max and later they both stop at La Spack, a rundown roadside eatery run by a fat n sturdy woman.
The biker gang reappears and when one of the gang members is about to rape Max, the entire gang is chased off by the owner of the restaurant. Moments later, Max vanishes after heading to the bathroom. Charlotte inquires the owner n a retired cop but to no avail.
How can a person wear a coat of mail most of the time?
Now who stands next to a person presumed dead/down by facing away?
How the creatures were able to get inside n outside the mud without effort?
How the creatures were able to hang the gìrl upside down?
Why the bikers rested at the same spot. Also where were the bikers when the lady took the meals for the creatures for the first time.
And why wud any biker jus rest at somebody else's property by trespassing? Weren't they suppose to move on the roads.
The background story of the miners doesnt add to the scariness. They shud have jus left em as creatures from the marsh.
We have Matthias Schoenaerts in a tiny role as a gang member.
Claustrophobic n bleak landscape wise, the film has a similar tone of that of Calvaire and the wet, muddy n uneven roads wise, this will remind Straightheads aka Closure.
