Synopsis

Storyline:
Siblings, Brad and Lisa Carpenter, along with two lifelong family friends, Will and Vanessa, set out to cross Eastern Canada enroute to an annual family reunion. Their road trip takes them through the scenic, isolated countryside of New Brunswick, on a blistering hot summer day. They eventually make the decision to find an appealing place to stop halfway, and camp for the night. The group thinks they have found the perfect haven, when they are awakened by strange noises in the forest. What ensues is a violent disturbance by six masked assailants, without motive, without reason. The group find themselves living in a night of psychological games and physical terror, and as morning dawns; the reality of what will come is more terrifying than anything the group could have ever imagined.

User Reviews: This is another of those super low budget horrors churned out ten to the dozen. The start is a little unsettling but unfortunately that’s as good as it really gets. As per most low budget horrors the acting leaves a bit to be desired and you don’t really get the chance to empathise with any of the intended victims.

The film doesn’t offer anything new, young adults are terrorised on a camping trip. You pretty much know what to expect and it’s an all round unpleasant viewing experience certainly not one you’d want to watch again.

The film is quite disturbing in places but I didn’t really see much point in it, it almost seemed violence for violence’s sake, unless the message is there are a lot of sick people out there. Yes I think we all know that. You don’t get to know anything about the perpetrators which pretty much leaves you in the dark.

This isn’t the worst film I’ve seen as it is quite unsettling and does at least hold your interest however it really is just film to be watched by fans of low budget horror. For anyone else this is just a waste of their time.
