A good fun well thought out horror that will captivate audiences.
4 September 2005 | by trillions1See all my reviews

This story was well thought out.

The sound composer was excellent. There were many beautiful shots. It was well cast. This kept me watching to see what would happen. There was never a dull moment.

The location of the cabin was especially beautiful. I liked how we got to see it in spring and then in the snow in winter. The inside was a well designed cabin (worthy of the real estate agent promoting it), the outside was clearly wilderness which suited the script well. I felt like they really were far from civilization.

The script was very well put together. I liked to see a horror that doesn't just go off on a horror tangent but has a complete story. This one delivered!
