A brief synopses(as not to spoil the movie) is you've got a group of people going out on a company retreat. These people happen to be employees of a weapons manufacturer. Anyway there transpotation winds up breaking down on the way & they find a place out in the woods that they at 1st assume is the designated retreat area. After that things start to get bloody and that's all you really need to know. The movie is well acted, & the characters are well fleshed out so you really care what happens to 'em (which doesn't happen very often in horror flicks). Anyway, this is gonna be a sleeper hit, so make sure all you gore hounds & horror freaks check this one out. It's at very least worth a rental if not worthy of your very own collection/library at home. There's just something about British horror, they get it & I wish Hollywood would pick up on that. Check this one out & you won't be disapointed!!!
it also has the gore of "Turistas".
Not a bad combo at all, if you ask me.
Here's the premise:
A group of office employees(all of which are great characters), on a retreat, happen upon the wrong cabin.
And by wrong, I mean, home of a psychopath.
So what naturally starts out as whole-hearted laughs, quickly distorts into blood-curdling screams.
Needless to say,
I am so glad I stumbled upon this gem of a horror/comedy.
So freakin' glad.
I found it infinitely more hilarious than Shaun of the Dead AND Black Sheep.
In fact I found it funnier than practically every horror/comedy I've ever seen.
Very highly recommended.
(Especially to those who like to laugh & cringe)
One of the most lovable characters in the picture is trippin' out on mushrooms the entire film. =D
And during this one particular scene,
he sees himself standing in the threshold across the room,
So of course, his duplicate and him start making facial gestures to each other.
Eventually he follows his doppleganger outside,
and sees yet another duplicate standing against a tree,
who it turns out, was him the entire time.
And yet despite all the comedy that takes place in the former half of the film,
there is definitely an impending sense of dread in the latter half,
especially once the blood starts soaking up the surroundings.
And truth be told, the gore is actually done suprisingly well.
No cop outs here, folks.
There's 1 inevitabely classic scene where one characters leg is stuck in a bear-trap.
His fellow employees keep trying to help him out, but to no avail.
It keeps slamming shut, biting down even further into his leg.Read more ›
It does that and then gives them their own somewhat bizarre and overdone personalities, such as the boss's attempt to be PC.
Rarely does a movie successfully combine horror and comedy, there were definitely some tongue in cheek moments here. Maybe no side-splitting laughter to be found, but I'd say it was darkly twisted and I laughed several times throughout.
I'd say it closely resembled 'Cabin in the Woods', if you enjoyed that movie, you might appreciate this one.
If you're looking for gory torture/porn, look elsewhere. This has some gore to it, but it isnt Saw or Hostel. I'd say this movie conentrates more on the humor than the horror and does it well.
It was funny, although it's hard to imagine that people could be so stupid. I mean really, really stupid.
It was like - could NO ONE put the clues together on this one and figure it out before people started dropping like flies?
As in several productions I'd recently seen, the movie starts towards the end (you find out later) and then jumps to the beginning. This leaves you with absolutely no idea of who anyone is or their relative importance to the plot. Kinda like "Firefly" as broadcast on TV.
The protagonists are out in the woods, at the wrong place because of a stupid manager (and let's face it, we've all worked for stupid managers, right?) and something is horribly wrong.
And it goes down hill from there.
The best bit of comedy is when the last two people are barely standing and then rescued by the two European "Escorts" who were at the RIGHT place all along. Kind of refreshing that you see the irony of those who should be the weakest turn out to be the most practical and bad-*ss.
