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

  • Not much adventure. Not much horror.

  • Cub is from that niche genre, Belgian cub scout horror-slasher movie, and would not win Baden-Powell's approval.

  • 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.

  • The poor writing and characterization ruin everything, leaving Cub as nothing more than a middling genre effort.
