Critic Reviews for Timber Falls
Giglio doesn't quite seem able to decide what his tone is, incongruously mixing goofy redneck humor with harrowing scenes of intense pain, but horror fans should dig it nonetheless
If you think the adults on Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader are dumb, wait until you meet this couple.
This lost-in-the-woods thriller actually holds our interest thanks to good performances from the central duo. Everything else in this film is completely bonkers.
Although clearly derivative, the film works hard to assemble its familiar pieces into something that works in its own right.
Not only will you have a pretty good idea from the start what is going to happen to all these 'characters', but, even worse, you will not care when it does. A film so soulless deserves to be confined to DVD hell.
Audience Reviews for Timber Falls
The story is not new: young couple goes hiking on the wrong trail and ends up in trouble. The shape of the trouble is so over the top and unrealistic here that it's hard to take it seriously. Christian fanatics may be a problem in certain parts of the world, but their motifs in catching the couple here lack any logic. It doesn't help that the freak's make up is incredibly silly. There are still moments of excitement and at least our protagonists make a few smart decisions unlike the usual horror thriller victims. So the result is not boring but overall just way too much over the top. It also drags on 15 minutes too long. And even though it doesn't mess up the rather decent ending, the last second scare is so obvious and stupid, you see it coming from a mile away.
When I saw it I said it would get 3 stars. But I just don't see the point....cause it wasn't good...you could watch it without getting pissed off....but it wasn't good. And that's what matters....not wrestling...And come on...we could hear the waterfall was fake...
Actually nothing special in this Movie, but entertaining.
