Storyline

For nineteen-year-old Jay, Autumn should be about school, boys and week-ends out at the lake.

Faced with this burden, Jay and her friends must find a way to escape the horrors, that seem to be only a few steps behind. Written by Jose Tamayo

Trivia

Yara reads out a section from Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel, "The Idiot", which sums up the "But here I should imagine the most terrible part of the whole punishment is, not the bodily pain at all-but the certain knowledge that in an hour,-then in ten minutes, then in half a minute, then now-this very instant-your soul must quit your body and that you will no longer be a man-and that this is certain, certain!"

Goofs

At 57 minutes, when Jay is practicing firing the revolver, the revolving cylinder holding the rounds never revolves to put a fresh round in front of the firing pin. See more »

Quotes

Hugh: Okay, even thought it is following you I can still see it. It is not done with me either. Okay, like I told you, all you can do is pass it on to someone else.
Kelly Height: What the fuck are you talking about?
Hugh: She can do the same thing I did. It should be easier for her, she is a girl. Any guy would be with you. Just sleep with someone else and tell him to do the same thing. Maybe it will never come back.

Just no.
13 August 2015 | by tl_eduSee all my reviews

I wish I could have found just one thing positive to say about this film, but there's nothing. Not a thing.

The beginning made it look so promising, what an absolute let down.

The score was as annoying as a mosquito buzzing in your ear, only much, much louder.

Now if someone can please tell me where all these high ratings and reviews came from, that would be great. I was fooled into watching this, purely on that, and I feel cheated. I will never take IMDb ratings seriously again, because it is obviously rigged.

I also voted for all the one star reviews (there are so many!) in hopes they are bumped up to warn the unsuspecting potential viewer.
