Critic Reviews for The Corridor
This "cabin-in-the-woods" horror pic gets off to a good start with subtle chills and a fresh concept, but ultimately suffers from a weak, overly vague ending.
Debutant director Evan Kelly perhaps shows a little too much confidence in Josh McDonald's wordy script and the young cast's ability to pull off a dialogue-heavy set-up, but his handling of cabin-in-the-woods paranoia and its icky outcome is top notch.
It seems like half of genre pics these days begin with a cabin in the woods. As such, "The Corridor" is alternately offbeat and derivative, reminiscent of a "Twilight Zone" episode without a satisfying payoff.
Audience Reviews for The Corridor
Would you accept an invitation to hang out for a weekend in the middle of nowhere with the childhood buddy who recently stabbed you during a psychotic break, but claims he's fine now as long as he takes his pills? If so, you may enjoy this cabin-in-the-woods horror with good character development and a hallucinatory "is this really happening or is it all in my head?" ending.
Watching The Corridor I felt like I was watching a cheap version of Stephen King's The Dreamcatcher.I probably should've turned it off after watching the 1st 10-20 minutes.It started off boring & with about 30 minutes left, I was thinking why haven't I turned it off already?! Still I watched it till the end & I was so happy when it was over.I wonder why didn't I turn it off when I 1st thought about it?
The Corridor feels like a Stephent King set-up--It and Dreamcatcher both spring to mind: a group of old male friends gather in snowy cabin to forestall the onset of middle age. Haunted by traumas from their past and looming responsibilities, the group discovers a bizarre singularity in the woods. Ultimately, the Corridor's set-up fails to pay off. The film admirably spends time on character development, but the drama ultimately overtakes the horror in a way that is fundamentally unsatisfying.
