Teenagers Zach and Josh have been best friends their whole lives, but when a gruesome accident leads to a cover-up, the secret drives a wedge between them and propels them down a rabbit hole of escalating paranoia and violence.
In a small, remote village in upstate Quebec, things have changed. Locals are not the same anymore - their bodies are breaking down and they have turned against their loved ones. A handful of survivors goes hiding into the woods, looking for others like them.
A black comedy thriller that works on multiple levels. Chris Baugh's feature debut very violent and dark yet never loses the comical touch which keeps the viewer close to the protagonist Donel, the middle-aged farmer whose revenge for the murder of his mom serves as an unravelling of the whole film. With such a premise the direction of the story could have gone to many places yet it stayed through the simple Donel all the while keeping it interesting. Without relying on too much character exposition scenes or monologues the film lets the events describe the characters yet retaining enough background for them to be effective.
