Storyline

Richard Hunter, a promising young lawyer at a prestigious firm, has the perfect future mapped out. However, a costly mistake with a powerful client has put it all at risk. In a desperate attempt to save his job, Richard and his wife Tara spend the weekend at the cottage of senior partner Preston Westwood. The young couple is quickly seduced by their charismatic hosts' lavish lifestyle but it is clear that something ominous lies just below the surface. After a devastating act of violence reveals that they have become pawns in a blood feud between the Westwoods and a local family, Richard and Tara must decide what they are willing to sacrifice for success...their morals, their marriage, or their lives.

We make good beer
5 December 2014 | by rps-2See all my reviews

Canada makes good beer. Our whiskey is famous. We discovered insulin and invented the paint roller. Canada has produced great authors, actors and singers. But making movies is not something we do well at all and this puzzling, pointless, predictable turkey is but one more example of our embarrassing sophomoric efforts. The acting is barely adequate. The camera work is unoriginal. The script, with its absurdities and cinematic clichés might have been concocted by a grade school class. Why are we so bad at movies? My guess is that its because all our good talent has been syphoned off to Hollywood, leaving only hacks and losers at home, people who would rather pocket government film subsidies than create meaningful movies. These subsidies and tax breaks may create jobs. But they also result in appallingly embarrassing movies.
