Storyline

Sam, 12, is in trouble: his entire "Pathfinder" scout troop picks on him - and worse. The leader, Peter, is the worst of all. He seems to find a sadistic pleasure in humiliating Sam. This year's trip is to a woods near the French border where a curious legend named Kai is said, around the campfire, to make mischief. But when Sam finds that Kai is no legend and that he makes more than mischief, no one believes him. Written by Anonymous

Superb Belgium horror
12 December 2016 | by MattyGibbsSee all my reviews

A scout group venture into the forest and come face to face with much more than they bargained for.

I can't recall ever watching a Belgium horror and so did not really know what to expect. Thankfully this is a very good little movie that is well acted, well produced and very entertaining.

I was expecting a generic in the woods scary film but this one never quite goes where you think it will. The first half is relatively slow but nonetheless interesting as you get to know the characters involved. It's worth sticking with as the second half really takes off. Whilst not out and out scary there is a fair bit of gore and a few ingenious deaths.

This is one of the best new horror films I've seen in a while and I can't say I was anything but impressed by this little gem.
