Rebecca Palmer is Anne, a bike messenger who an unfortunate and quite weird one night stand with Chris (Ben Price), a cycling policeman.Read more ›
The daytrip turns out to be neither nice nor quiet. Chris has followed them into the mountainside forests and demands complete possession of Anne, which starts with him dispatching of Michael in a ludicrous and altogether laughable fashion. The "horror" that follows Anne for the rest of this tepid film is, we are meant to realize, the repercusions of her single, adulterous mistake.
The problem is that Anne, like most Slasher Pic Sirens, continues to make mistakes in her attempts to find safety and freedom. In fact, of the many, many, many horror/killer films I've seen, Anne has got to be, hands-down, the absolute stupidest heroine I have ever had the misfortune to watch. I wondered, as the film progressed, how any clear-thinking director could expect an audience to find Anne sympathetic, her actions understandable, or her position terrifying.
Not that our villain is any more relatable. In addition to possessing a humbling silence common for most malicious men, Chris is also, apparantly, an expert tracker with something like superhuman strength and agility. Neither he nor Anne seem very real until the final scene. This last burst of full-flowered action is a welcome change of pace, but it is also short and truncated.Read more ›
It is a gorgeous looking movie that introduces you to a good looking killer in the opening scene and then spends the rest of the movie nudging our heroine Anne into his arms. It is a romance told through the slasher formula. And this particular courtship is breathtaking and shocking to watch.
Against wide shots of the mountain location(Austria I believe), the personal story of a girl cheating on her boyfriend and regretting how dark the experience got--not the act itself, unfolds in intimate, frantic spurts. She runs, she hides, she asks for help. The killer eliminates all help. This dance eventually forces Anne to confront why she's running, and it is here when the movie goes far beyond the typical horror film. Fans of THE AUDITION will enjoy this intense climax.
Even before the tree fell, I was thinking, "This is a lot like In Fear," which is like saying, "This is a lot like some of the best mint chocolate chip ice cream I've ever tasted in my life." That good.
The heroine is the BEST scream queen I've seen since discovering Tamin Sursok. That good.
And anyway, isn't it time we cyclists had our own horror movie. Camping pretty much owns the slasher industry, and there have been horrors based on spelunking (Descent), competitive eating (Taxidermia) and taxidermy (again, Taxidermia). The biking shots are just awesome, as is all the nature photography. And unlike a lot of the movies I like, this one seems VERY accessible to the walkaday horror fan. It's foreign, yeah, but other than that nothing especially weird or experimental, just an exercise in taking it to the very edge.

The plausibility factor is very low, but the violence, and the action featuring mountain bikes, may provide enough excitement to make the thriller Blood Trails (2006) worth a watch... Read morePublished on August 11, 2012 by trebe
