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

Oh dear...
21 August 2016 | by slatif74See all my reviews

Let me start by saying *please* do not watch this poor excuse for a movie. As clichéd as it sounds, you genuinely will want that hour and a half of your life back. I actually had to write a review for the first time just to warn others.

To say this film is bad, is an insult to bad; absolutely everything about this 'production' sucks to the nth degree. The story is a mish-mash of utter nonsense. The acting is actually worse than anything that's come from the Asylum guys, and that's some mean feat. And then there's the camera work - it looks like it was filmed by a blind one armed man on a poor quality JVC camera from the 80's. No concept of framing, and on more than one occasion, foreground scenery completely obscures the actor that's talking.

I think the continuity guy must have been hungover during the night scene in the cabin, as the curtains appeared to be letting in daylight. Foley work is just as bad, with outright strange noises used for everyday things. Like, WTF???

About half way in, I thought this might be so bad that it's good, but that feeling passed. Very quickly. The annoying this is, the premise is really good, but unfortunately the execution is dire.

Please, please for the sake of all that is good and holy, keep away from this. It literally is cinematic diarrhoea.
