Storyline

For years, the Covington forest has been shrouded in mystery, with a dark past as a final destination for troubled youths. Undeterred by the news of a classmate who recently took his life in those woods, five teens journey into the forest for an evening of flashlight games and ghost stories. But their plans go awry when the friends awaken a demonic presence, an unseen evil that will seize upon their deepest fears-and plunge them into a nightmare of absolute terror. Written by Lionsgate

Just OK but tropes galore
19 October 2020 | by mattmuskoSee all my reviews

This movie had potential and parts of it were scary but it was mostly just a bunch of idiot kids running around. Unfortunately, movies like this require characters to talk to themselves because they are alone but it gets annoying fast. This film lacked explanations and was mostly just a bunch of jump scares stitched together. Watch if you want to roll your eyes a lot. Why do these movies always have some dumb girl finding a basement/tunnel/cave/attic/etc. that is scarier than the rest of her surroundings yet that's where she instinctively goes? In this movie one of them says "I'm not going in there" while she is actually going in there...WTF?!?

It's kinda fun being so close to Halloween for a fright binge but there are far more superior examples in this overplayed genre. 5 stars from me.
