Storyline

Five college students, returning from spring break, crash their car in an isolated New England countryside. Stranded in middle of nowhere, they seek help in Emeryville - an old, dilapidated western village, off the map. A seemingly well-mannered village caretaker extends an offer of a place to stay the night until a mechanic can arrive the following morning. With nightfall quickly approaching, the group isn't left with a choice. As time passes, the new comers discover that Emeryville was once a ground for secret clinical experiments gone awry. It slowly becomes clear that the residents are far from normal and that their society abides by a set of rules. And one such rule is, 'We keep the ones we need'. Trapped in remote village miles from civilization & fearing for their lives, the group plots an escape. When the villagers realize that their escape could threaten Emeryville's very existence, the group finds themselves hunted by a strange breed of crazies

Huh???
21 August 2016 | by browseveeSee all my reviews

I love movies of all genre and sorts. This is the one of the most if not the most awful one I have seen. We've been here before. It's like a combo of Wrong Turn and Hills Have Eyes. Bad script, bad directing and just bad everything.

Yes, it is a village trapped in time, an experiment.... it's not probable. And then you have the token ethnic actor, this time it's not a African American but an Indian American. It is so stereotypical at first, I thought it was a spoof film, making fun of the Wrong Turn series or Hills Have Eyes, and the title mimics that of the Amityville Horror. I don't understand it at all. It's just a mishmash especially with flashback scenes which aim to introduce the back story. However, it only makes the movie confusing. A lot of the scenes do not flow. If you have someone going crazy at the dinner table, and he's a stranger to you, wouldn't you all just leave or at least react?! Not just sit there quietly as if everything is OK. That was why I thought, it must be a spoof. But I think it's not.

Kudos to Mr Chheda who made the film. However, I would strongly suggest perhaps he should return to civil engineering. If he has too much money to waste, give it to charity. This movie is such a waste that it's bordering on being sinful!
