Deep into the rural and undisturbed English countryside, three teenage friends, Grace, Nick and Pete, wander across the forest until they finally reach their destination: a picturesque woodland private lake. But there, a string of bizarrely terrible coincidences will soon turn a seemingly peaceful weekend by the lake, into an endless bloodbath.Written by
This is a short film that, at first, looks like every other teens-in-the-woods slasher flick. I won't go into the plot as there is a circular element to it, but it doesn't end as one would presume...and that's a good thing.
On the plus side, the acting is better than average for this sort of thing, and the gore effects are well-done. The story has an actual, logical plot to it, which is a nice contrast to most of these predictable short flicks.
On the minus side, one of the characters is so obnoxious that nobody would hang out with him, much less go camping with him. There's also a burn scene where 2 seconds of contact with a hot surface completely melts half of a person's face, and that's just not possible. I've had 3rd-degree burns, and this is just unrealistic.
Certainly worth a look, and hopefully a sign of better things to come.
