The cast was a definite appeal for me: James Marsden, Piper Perabo, Billy Bob Thornton, Thomas Jane and Scott Glenn are all actors that I enjoy usually.

And although they aren't terrible I don't think any of them shine in their roles, but then they didn't have much to work with; the characters are all pretty flat with little to no character development.

The script is not well-written (to put it mildly) in fact it reminds me of the typical creature feature that SyFy channel mass-produces by the dozens every year, but with better acting and better music.

Extremely clichéd and no real suspense, I mean there were attempts at suspense but it all felt pretty flat just like the rest of the movie.

PS, Piper Perabo plays a deaf-mute woman so she has no dialogue, in case you were like me looking forward to see her act again she does so just by gestures and facial expressions.

I recommend Backcountry aka Blackfoot Trail instead.
