Most horror films have unbelievable moments. This one has a few too many.
The characters are unlikable, and the film doesn't have anything style-wise that sets it apart.
The ending falls flat too. Not to spoil the film, but it breaks most of the horror film rules while still being unoriginal.
The killer completely lacks any development whatsoever. We don't know where he came from, why he's doing what he's doing, or anything else for that matter.
I'd defo skip this one. Had some of the same issues as "Mothers Day". It's called "odds"! If you get 3 or 4 on 1, or 8 people on 2... then it's bumrush/quit being a whussy time. This movie is super-high on the "whuss-factor". These male leads should star prime-time on QVC selling cubic zarconium.
The ending of this film also feels quite rushed. Some of the little intricacies/subplots of the first 90 minutes are absolutely squandered.
Glad this was a 4rth redbox rental at only $1.13, or I would be upset.
You'd be better off trying these first(low-budget horror of the last 5 years that are better than ATM): Frozen, The Collector, Some Guy Who Kills People, Eden Lake, Pontypool, Troll Hunter, Hatchet, Hatchet 2, Timber Falls, Behind the Mask, Marytrs, Tucker n Dale Vs. Evil, Trick Or Treat('07), or The House of The Devil
Not that all those are great, but they're definitely better than this.
