Low budget I assume . . . does not "look" low budget
This movie was an unexpected treat and those tend to be the best movie experiences for me, I guess because I watch SO many crappy movies.
I don't know any of the folks involved with this movie, but I love good indie film work, so I decided to spend some of my Thursday evening writing this review. Big budget movies should be good and look good, so there is no surprise factor there, but finding a low budget movie that does not "look" or "entertain" on a low budget level is nice.
The basics: A guy takes his son on a camping trip an unluckily encounters some of the most creepy people in the woods you will ever meet this side of the movie Deliverance. I know what your thinking (So what? Seen this one before) but not really, this movie is pretty quirky in a good way, kept me interested and I watch a lot of films in this genre.
I hate long reviews so let me give you the bottom line: The directing and acting are excellent (Phillip Roebuck really looks like Michael Keaton to me and was solid) and the photography is beautiful. You could do worse on slow night at home. Compared to some of the junk I watch, this was like cold watermelon on a hot day. 6/10 Cheers
