Editorial Reviews

Alice (Dianna Agron) and her friends are approaching the end of the school year, when their dead-end lives will end and the chance of a new life will begin. Before heading off to college, they spend one last day together in the woods, the one part of town that has always been off-limits to them growing up. As they stumble upon what they thought was an abandoned fort, only to find the walls dripping in blood and decomposing body parts lying around, they are startled to learn they are now a part of an undercover investigation. After being told to get out of the woods, they realize they're trapped, for The Hunters, who call the fort home, never let anyone out alive!

When I don't know much about a movie, I usually read the Amazon brief synopsis to see what the movie is about and sometimes I watch the trailer. I don't know who wrote this synopsis for Amazon but s/he is either misleading the crowd in purpose because s/he was told to do so just to attract more buyers/viewers, or there was a mistake. Alice (Dianna Agron) HAS A TINY ROLE in the movie. I guess they wanted to put her on the cover rather than all the psychopaths hunting humans in the forest (...what is your name? That is her best line at the end). Even the trailer doesn't represent the movie. I guess they realized they messed up a movie with potential, they cut it, they saw the final product and then they said: oups, how can we sell this piece of junk for $12 and try to make some money? Let's misinform the audience, let's put Alice on the cover, let's have a trailer focusing on Alice (the good looking one, that is only in the movie for maybe 5 minutes total), and let's have Amazon write a fake pathetic summary of the movie that has nothing to do with the story. Two stars because it has potential, but two stars also because of the misinformation. The principal protagonist with the fake French accent (Chris Briant) needs to take some acting lessons from De Niro.

The film is not as described. Dianna Argon, whose Snow White doll face adorns the cover is a minor chracter. Most of the film is preoccupied with building character, even the minor ones like a Dickens' novel. The main character is Chris Briant. He plays a new policeman and ex-army vet. There has been a rash of disappearances in the county. Briant suspects a fenced private hunting area known as Fort Gobin.

He opts to go find out on his own and by this time you're asleep. The gory stuff is done off screen. This is not a teens going to the wrong place and being tortured type of movie. Fairly lame in slasher terms.

F-bombs, no sex, no nudity, a homo-erotic dance.

This movie was kind of a let down, I watched it because Dianna Agron was in it and I am a big fan of "I am Number Four". I am a little unsure if this was made before that one or not but I suspect that she did the movie for a paycheck. Weak story and some pretty lame characters and I would take a pass, at least I rented it and didn't buy it!!

Interesting, tense thriller. Above-average acting. Unhappy characters try to overcome their desperate positions in life by taking out their frustration on hapless strangers. One Afagan war veteran takes on a gang of violent lunatics.

Picture the scene a disused castle that is run by an elite club of men who like shooting off in the woods (I did that once). Throw into the mix some rubbish cops who have spent too long learning `The Cop Book Of Unamusing Clichés' and some `kids' who just wanna have fun. This then is the heady mix of (not so) groundbreaking scenarios that our hero is thrown into.

He is a cop, but wants to break the mould by taking on his ball breaking, no messin boss. This is a boss who knows he is winning because he can shout really loud. Our hero is also an ex marine - with a past - that will add to the nightmarish (not) situations he will be thrust into when a meeting with a stool pigeon leads him to be locked into the scary castle Goben's grounds.

Meantime there is another story of the three men who are the sort of gun totin guardians, they are all nice in real life doing jobs where they are underappreciated and oft times abused, like in a modern take of a Dickens character. One is a bar tender, one an IT guy and the other a school teacher, so at weekends they let their hair down by doin' stuff in the woods.

The hero cop is called Le saint and is played by Chris Briant who also directed this woeful waste of celluloid. We have phrases like `don't stray from the path' (bad guys to Le saint) and `you can't know suffering if you haven't experienced happiness' well the makers taught me a few things about suffering.

We have magic guns that never run out of bullets, motives left unexplained or even hinted at. Bad casting but Jay Brown as Steve and Steven Waddington as his mate Ronny both do above average jobs of raising this from the mire (hence the rating).

Hunter-prey movies e.g. "Surviving the Game", "Hard Target", "Deadly Prey" are plentiful and this one had potential given that the surprising source of who were the hunters and a really nice horrific setting. But it lagged in too many areas to be really good.
First, too many missing bodies, in too small of an area, over too long of a period of time to be taken seriously.
Second, that the police chief and several upstanding community members should be participating in the crimes was unbelievable.
Third, that nobody discovered the rooms of displayed heads and torture devices at a frequently visited tourist destination historical fort - nahhh, not likely.
Fourth, that our hero combat, ex-soldier, now police officer, made too many dumb decisions and when he finds himself holding and firing a weapon he acts like he was afraid of it. Then, with his seemingly unlimited supply of ammo (where it came from - who knows), he completely missed his very close targets despite being just yards away.
Fifth, all the improbable scenes where assailants die from their own stupid mistakes.
Sixth, really bad editing making the movie seem like a patchwork of scenes tossed together to quickly finish the movie. One example is the pointless ending with the hero sitting in a cafe sipping coffee while the only other survivor just happens to be sitting at a booth in the same cafe staring out the window (probably wondering why her boyfriend was blasted with a shotgun right in front of her) before she orders her tea.
