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

Soooo F*****NG Tired of FAKE REVIEWS
19 October 2016 | by Selena-KyleSee all my reviews

So when did fake reviews become a 'thing'?

In the last two weeks we have seen films that had NO business being in theaters because we simply looked at the score. Trust me when I tell you that you can't do this anymore. READ the reviews, and you will easily see which are FAKE.

First of all, any film that you haven't heard of previously with a 9 or 10 star rating from anyone should put you on-guard. (That's not to say that a 9 or 10-star rating alone is a clear indication of funny business). Secondly, if, as many of the 9 and 10 star reviewers here have done, the reviewer starts extolling the virtues of those involved in the film, by name (i.e., director Miles Doleac is fantastic and has brought his great vision to the screen!) it might be a sign the the reviewer is a shill. One person here talks about how the people involved in making this movie used all their money to do so. Well, I don't mean to be a witch, but what does that have to do with it being a good movie? While I feel badly for the creator for having sunk their life's savings into it, why would that make me or anyone else LIE and say it is good, when it is not? Third, the old closing of: "Watch it!", "Enjoy it!", "Get it on Amazon" ... should immediately raise a red flag, "Don't wait, you need to see it now", "Don't listen to others, listen to ME (or variations) are always dead giveaways. (Several 9 and 10-star reviews here have all of these).

Unfortunately, it seems that we live in an age where people seem to have a very low moral code and don't hesitate to lie at the drop of a hat and where anything (including integrity) can be purchased for pennies for the sake of the mighty dollar.

This movie is CRAP. I can't tell you if the ending redeemed it, because I could not get that far, but what I saw of it is enough to base my opinion on. To those that say, well how do you know if you didn't watch the end, you don't need to scoop out the contents of a diaper to know it is full of poop, and yes, I did, unfortunately, sit through enough of it to know. It is just BAD.

Anyway, if you want to take my word for it, you're welcome. If not, and you choose to watch it, don't say you weren't forewarned.
