(This review may contain spoilers).
This is one of those ‘supernatural slasher’ films. I don’t mean that it’s a film like Halloween, where the killer is somehow immortal despite being shot innumerable times.
This film is, I felt, a particularly confusing one. It followed the basic stereotypical plot – a group of young adults go away somewhere and start getting picked off one by one by a deranged killer.
Although this film did have the normal idiot/s who decide that standing in front of a mirror and saying something three times is a good idea, I felt that that didn’t really have much bearing on the film itself. I had the feeling that all of this was going to happen, no matter what the characters did. I’m just still not sure exactly what was going on.
The idea of not knowing whether your friends are still your friends came across fairly well, but the problem was that only one of the characters was anything like sympathetic. All of the others were cheating on their partners, or fighting and killing each other without feeling anything approaching remorse.
I think this film could have been a lot better than it was. I was a bit disappointed in it, to be honest. I like horrors, but too many of them are mediocre with gore for the sake of gore.
