In a post-apocalyptic world, five strangers travel in search of safety. They find a supposedly abandoned farmhouse and set up shop there, but there's a cannibalistic gang roaming the area, and has their eyes set right on the farmhouse. Now the friends must survive the night by fighting their way through the cannibal army, or be eaten at their hands.
I'm a sucker for post-apocalyptic movies, I find them incredibly fascinating and entertaining, no matter what they are ("The Road," "Carriers," etc). People downplayed this film a lot, so I didn't have a lot of expectations going into it, but what I found was an incredibly tense, atmospheric film filled with drama and lots of violence and gore.
The five actors are five of today's hottest young stars - Shawn Ashmore ("The X-Men"), Ashley Bell ("The Last Exorcism"), Cory Hardrict ("Gran Torino"), Dominic Monaghan ("The Lord of the Rings") and Shannyn Sossamon ("40 Days and 40 Nights"). They all played off each other very well, especially the mysterious character Ashley Bell portrays.
What also struck me was that the film was shot entirely in a dark sepia-like film quality that gives the illusion of hopelessness and sadness (this was done in "The Book of Eli" as well). It was incredible because it felt there was danger at every turn - and in this type of post-apocalyptic world, there was.
To me, it was an all-around great film.
