Although there is nothing new in the plot, the movie is exceedingly good! While, initially, there is an unexpected lack of violence – which, after all, helps the movie in the seriousness in which it is compromised – tension is everywhere, especially in the ongoing scenes in the dead of night, where you can see little, but there is enough evidence that clearly points out that something very wrong is going on.
The overall movie plot is very similar to the French-Romanian 2006 movie Them, as well as the 2011 film You’re Next, and the 2008 British thriller Eden Lake, but, interestingly, it seems like an excellent mixture of the best parts of their plots, and not just another pale movie in the same category, having, though, with all merits, a life of its own. Of course, there is no innovations here, so if you’re looking for something new – which is difficult to find in an overly saturated genre as horror, even if you look into all of its subgenres – you will not find it here, but if you’re looking for a good movie in an old-fashioned style, with no overall flaws, good acting, well dosed pace, a cohesive, well-defined and coherent plot, no boredom, and a lot of fear, you will get your 80 minutes fun, without a doubt!
Like the aforementioned Eden Lake – and most British horror movies – the overall structure of the film is simple, made entirely on a low budget, and the plot line, being close to real as it could be, its true to its kind, and the final result, although being somewhat predictable, ends up being very satisfactory, and such a good result cannot disappoint the fans of the genre.
In another words, don’t expect anything that will blow up your mind, but, being true to the subject, honest to the genre, and faithful to the situations which portrays, you will find the results interesting. If you’re a fan of the genre, you will certainly not regret! It deserves four stars, out of five, that is for sure!
