With Kennedy Jamieson (Julia Benson That Burning Feeling, SGU Stargate Universe) and Ryan Harris (Peter Benson Arrow, The Killing) wedding quickly approaching, they are swept away by Chet, their best man, to a remote cabin for an unforgettable combined bachelor/bachelorette weekend with their friends that they will never forget. But the get together takes a horrifying turn when dark secrets and forbidden desires are revealed and a mysterious killer starts brutally picking them off one-by-one. What started out as a celebration quickly descends into a bloody nightmare with friendships ripped apart and accusations flying in this blood-filled psychological horror.
The first thing I thought when I was watching this was, “Wow, I really hate these characters”. The odd thing is, as things go along you start to finally get use to everyone and their flaws and you start to try to figure out just what is going down or if everything is one giant curve ball. You probably won’t guess what is going down until it happens and while I’m sure the logic is there, it is still highly entertaining either way. We never know what is coming next and you actually find yourself legit interested in the cat and mouse game of this one. It also never hurts when you have extremely hot leads running around in the woods. Keep that in mind all of you directors who plan to make a slasher in the woods.
The key to the film and your enjoyment might be based on the ending. You will probably really hate it or really like it. I found myself shocked, so I’m leaning on the side of things that point to liking it. There is spots of nice gore and there are a few different ways the story goes before it wraps that make it nearly impossible not to hand the movie a few props. I’m always a sucker for a good slasher and this is a nice one that hits the marks it needs to in just enough fashion to earn a passing grade from me.
