Movie Info

A feral child stalks a group of Cub Scouts on a weekend excursion into the woods in this menacing tale of terror from Belgium. As the rambunctious scouts make their way into the woods, troubled 12-year-old Sam (Maurice Luijten) seems to be the only one who takes the stories of a vicious child named Kai who is rumored to attack unsuspecting campers at night. When darkness falls and bullied Sam catches a glimpse of Kai, his repeated attempts to warn his troupe fall on deaf ears. But it isn't long until the body count starts to rise, and no one can deny the truth - something deadly is lurking in the shadows, and it has come to prey on them. Surprisingly, Sam soon begins to develop a tenuous bond with the strange child. But Kai isn't the only threat out there, and it won't be long now before Sam discovers the true meaning of fear. Zombi's Steve Moore provides the synth-heavy score for this grim horror thriller. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

It gets lost a bit. A creepy excursion, though.

Referencing everything from 'Suspiria' to 'The Cabin in the Woods', this is a horror movie made by and for genre fans - but that's not necessarily a good thing.

This backwoods camping adventure and folk-legend fusion flies off the rails, unleashing a grotesque and vile nature in every character. "Cub" will leave you wanting to pack up your things and head home early.

Young Maurice Luijten brings a convincing disconnection to his character that fits the theory, which, unfortunately, further highlights untapped potential.

Cub ends up being a predictable dull mess which simply recreates past films that the director has seen, without any sense of originality or fun.

Cub is characterised by terrific performances (especially from the pre-teen cast), playfully ghoulish bloodwork, and the most inventive instruments of death we've seen since the Saw franchise ran out of ideas.
