An ultra low budget human drama that contains elements of comedy and horror. Its simple, nothing too amazing, but the improved performances make it seem natural, along with some actual tension in parts.
A group of four struggling filmmakers decide to spend their weekend up at a cabin to hopefully develop a script and make a movie. The group includes two guys and two girls. One guy is more successful with women. One girl doesn't show the feelings for the other guy who desires her. Basically, there's a handsome guy, a funny guy, a slutty girl, and the cute girl.
Some mystery ensues when a mysterious figure keeps appearing outside the cabin with a bag over their head. Whether its one of the four or someone else completely is the source of a mystery that begins to run throughout.
The movie is shot with a digital camera and makes no attempt at having clever visual tricks, its about what its about, and I thought it worked.

Nothing here will blow your mind, but it functions adeptly as a lo-fi genre meld, and at only 70 minutes it's not a huge waste of time even if you don't find something worth championing. An inspiring tidbit of indie cinema.
I am all for B Rates and Thrillers. I like to scream as well as the next person. There was just one problem, this movie was neither scary or entertaining. I could see how this would be good story, but it was just all over the place. Shot very shaky with people who need to go back to acting school. Besides, I saw that twist coming ten miles away, a red haring or something a little less predictable would have been better. At least The Blair Witch Project had people fooled for a little while.
I did like the DVD cover, kind of a throw back to Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice. Also, for the guys there was one boob shot. But, that hardly redeems this painful mess.
A note to Jay and Mark Duplass who wrote and directed this movie. Next time you get another brilliant idea and want to make it into a movie...Don't.
