Special thanks to Luke Brady for allowing us to review such an awesome UK bloodbath!
When five friends head to the woods for a weekend of drug fueled madness their night soon descends into chaos when they pitch up next to the grave of a local missing child. The film has amazing dialogue and the subtle humor is a great additional to this wonderful UK treasure.
Why You Should Watch It:
This film has fantastic young British actors that we on the stateside may not be aware of. The two actresses, Hannah Tointon and Louisa Lytton are fantastic and beautiful young scream queens. The gentlemen in the film do a fantastic job countering the narrative. Tony Montana would be jealous of the amount of drugs these kids consume in this movie! There are some fantastic brutal scenes in this movie for the truest horror fan, yet the dialogue separates this film from many others.
Why You Shouldn’t Watch It:
There is no reason at all for any horror fan not to watch this film. The only problem I had with the film was translating British English, to American English. This is probably easier for most, but I tend to have to concentrate sometimes to catch everything going on with the dialogue.
Rating: 5.25 out of 6 Skulls
“This is a UK treasure that combines storytelling, humor, and brutality in 89 minutes. These kids are higher than Charlie Sheen on a binger!”- D. Mack
