Kevin Durand - what is there more to say!?
24 July 2015 | by seulartsSee all my reviews

I have to say Kevin Durand worked with a low budget movie and made it into a nice piece of work at the end. Don't expect high quality horror from it, but I do appreciate the fact that the director did focus on tense moments and suspense rather than just on cheap scare tricks. The CGI is low budget as expected but they did do a good job at keeping it away from the screen until the last moment, making the audience grip on to find out what was hiding in those woods all this time. Acting is rather good and the double plot entices the story very well towards the end. If you don't know Kevin Durand, check some of his other roles, one of my favorite being "Vasiliy Fet" in the series called "The String". In the end I have to rate this as a 9/10 as there were some mistakes and clichés here and there, but nothing that would spoil the good action the movie brought forward.
