Finally, graduated and off to Croatia. It's supposed to be the "party of their lives." But for Julia and her friends their graduation trip turns into a horror trip, from which not everyone will return.

I had the opportunity to see this movie at the Portland horror film festival and I have to say that it's definitely in my top three horror films of all time. I appreciate home-invasion movies the most, and this one isn't afraid to be absolutely brutal. I can't wait for it to come out on DVD or be released to other theaters near me so that I can see it multiple times, as the main antagonist is to die for. In terms of creativity, you don't get too much of it in the horror genre, which is becoming a bit stale for my tastes as of late, but this one is refreshing. It manages to take something that we've known as an audience and bring twists to it so that it's able to stand on its own and compete with some of the more commercialized and funded films that are out now.
