When Ada and Eileen are washing clothes in the stream, they are both barefoot. Ada wades across the river and up the bank to hang the clothes and has her vision of the creature attacking Eileen. She screams, her mother runs to her, and they both race down to the river where they see blood, at which point Ada is still barefoot. The two women then follow the blood trail to the pit, running all the way. When they arrive at the pit, Ada is wearing black socks and boots over white stockings. See more »

A dark, beautiful slice of another life.
15 July 2013 | by Robvader12See all my reviews

Just finished watching this and I have to say, it's everything I want in a short, well packaged southern Gothic story. I don't want to give anything away but i will cover a few basics. The acting is well above the norm for this type of film with all of the leads playing their roles very believably. The story of a a small, backwoods community that worships a pit that demands a sacrifice to ensure the health of the others is a simple premise that surrounds itself with enough drama to give the actors plenty to work off. The soundtrack is nice and haunting with a southern twist on the guitar riffs that add to the sense of oddity. The director makes good use of the limited number of actors to create a sense of how isolated these people are from the rest of the world without it seeming forced. The story is extremely dark and with plenty of blood, though not much gore, and plenty of disturbing dialogue that makes you really understand the sense of desperation and insanity that hangs over the characters. The movie moves at a slow pace but without losing your attention. To the contrary, the pacing makes the inevitable conclusion all the more painful and accentuates the "deep woods" atmosphere that is injected along the full length of this tale of blood, family, tradition and the the consequences that result. Please do yourself a favor and give this beautifully shot film a viewing, you won't be disappointed.
