When a gas station is held at gunpoint by a desperate man in need of cash, a lonely and unstable gas station attendant, tired of being overshadowed by her more outgoing co-worker, finds an opportunity to make a connection with the robber.
So I'm not rating this a 5 for the actual movie...but what it's actual purpose likely is. The movie itself is very low budget with basically no plot or character development whatsoever. Women get kidnapped and hunted by men in masks through a forest and some old cabins. That is literally the entire movie. Not really all that original of a plot and the acting was so-so.
I'm rating this a 5 instead of lower because I believe it's more of a venue for the FX company to show what it can accomplish with a small budget, and they did a fantastic job. They use real practical effects to deliver on some pretty gory deaths to great results. It's also shot very well. Also the lead actress did a more than passable job in her role.
So is it a good movie? Meh, it's just okay. But it'll serve as good promotion for a new young actress and an FX company on a nothing budget, so kudos for that.
