Movie Info

A decade after the sheriff of Dead River, Maine killed a murderous clan of cannibalistic savages, the nightmare returns to the sleepy small town in this brutal screen adaptation of Jack Ketchum's terrifying novel (originally penned as a follow-up to his 1980 fiction debut Off-Season). Ketchum adapts his novel for the screen in a film directed by Andrew Van Den Houten (who previously produced the feature adaptation of Ketchum's The Girl Next Door). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Has some interesting things to say, and some fresh ideas to try out, but ultimately is an underwhelming gore-fest that's poorly acted and poorly filmed.

    Bad movie with good looking actors, the plot is confusing, dialogues are dumb, actors revising lines on screen, Ketchum has good novels but failed to be adapted

    This is a horrible movie on almost any scale, with any measure.. so I don't see how some can give it 3-5 stars. This doesn't compare favorably to anything, in any form. There is no quality here.. from acting, to directing, to effects, to camera work, to production value, to script .. it's all crap.. This isn't an issue of me not being able to handle "gore" or "gross movies".. I thought The Hills Have Eyes was awesome.. Descent is gory in it's own right and far better.. I've seen 100s of horror movies with equal or more gore and never held it against them.. the gore and "shock" moments of this movie aren't even gross.. they're mind numbingly cartoonish.. there is no redeeming value of watching this movie -- it's not even laughable.. it's just sad. There are literally 1000s of movies out there that are better in every way.. and other than maybe one or two sparks, this is a complete and utter waste of time. ** I'd actually warn against those coming back to see this movie in anticipation of seeing "The Woman".. which is apparently the 'sequel' and has garnered a lot of press and controversy after a film festival showing led to walk outs. I expect - given it's directed by Lucky McKee (The Woods, Masters of Horror-Sick Girl, May) who is a competent director - that will be a more capable movie with proper direction and a completely different, non-amateurish, vibe..

    I watched this movie because I was planning to check the sequel which has been renamed as "The Woman" and it has received positive reviews from horror sites and I think they changed the name because this first installment sucks. I hope sequel surpasses this bad movie which has riidiculous primitive costumes, bad directing and pacing, bad story, ect... ect... ect... There are a couple of good death but they worth not the checking running time.
