A journalist and her young son are caught in the crossfire when an old friend turns vigilante after his mother's murder. She must not only fight for their survival but reassess her definitions of friendship, motherhood, and right and wrong.
Three family members head deep into the woods for a hunting trip that doubles as a distraction from their troubles at home. When all of their gear is stolen, they turn on each other, but soon realize there are much more treacherous forces at work.
The game that one of the characters plays on a cell phone is called "Dead Trigger", a popular first person shooter that features zombies as enemies. See more »
When they begin to walk to find their way back, Wit's X mark begins to fade a bit (only about the bottom half of the X was fading looking like a "V") and when her husband and brother-in-law stop fighting, her X mark "somehow" reappears. See more »
I read from another reviewer that this was compared to "You're next" by a critic and was even rated better/higher than that. Let me back his opinion up: You're next is way superior than this, but it's also a different cup of tea and you shouldn't compare it. Since we can't see who's doing what for a very long time in this movie, this can be compared to the Spanish "King of the Hill" ... you can also mix a bit of Eden Lake into it (as there was a female lead character in that too).
Unfortunately the movie is letting one down after a rather strong beginning, which is a shame. A friend of mine felt that it was stronger (the survival instinct, the title is suggesting). Some things you have to figure out for yourself, but this movie has too many holes to be really great in my book. Still decent though
