It's a not a fairy tale. It's harsh and depressing. But it draws you in to the point you cannot stop watching. If slow, dark and damp isn't your thing then don't watch it. Better yet, watch it and then leave a 1 star review.
It has great acting- as in characters don't make stupid mistakes and do exactly like they should given the situation. I find this movie to be much more watchable than Green Room, but both are worth a watch. Green room is traumatic. Epic, but traumatic.
Several times I was amazed at the natural flow of the dialog and how much certain scenes made sense. Not really giving anything away, but in one scene Dwight finds a grave and decides to desecrate it. Before he does you see him over the kitchen sink seeing how much water he can drink. In another scene he is concerned about a friend's continued involvement in his revenge scheme so he removes the battery from his truck so he can't follow him. Some of the negative reviews complained about lack of character development, but these two scenes alone show the mind of the lead character. Just a little too deep for the Reality TV crowd who are used to See Spot Run dialog.
Another notable performance was given by Devin Ratray as the helpful high school friend. Never felt like he was acting.
I hope more people see this movie, because unlike some of the big budget films, this movie delivers.
