nothing to do with the real events
31 October 2017 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

Based on the real Bodom murders in 1960, friends are going back to the lake to go camping but of course things go wrong. I thought it was going to be a slasher because so many are talking about this flick as being a slasher.

i can agree on some parts but to be called a slasher therefor it doesn't fit in the terms to be called a slasher. You known, nudity, pov shots, the heroin...but still it does deliver on some nasty parts but you have to watch it closely to understand it all because the story goes everywhere and back.

It wasn't as nasty as some said it was going to be because some 'slashing' is done off -camera, a no go in the slasher genre.

On the other hand, the camera did a nice job, well shot and edited but for me the worst thing was the story itself. The red stuff is there but no gore.
