Plot: Five teenagers head off for a weekend at a secluded cabin in the woods. They arrive to find they are quite isolated with no means of communicating with the outside world. When the cellar door flings itself open, they of course go down to investigate. They find an odd assortment of relics and curios but when one of the women, Dana, reads from a book she awakens a family of deadly zombie killers. There’s far more going on however than meets the eye as the five campers are all under observation.
Review: This was a really strange film, not what I thought it was at all. I was the trailers and thought it was some kind of horror film, especially with the Zombies. However not what I was expecting. First clue CIA looking guy on the roof when the “kids” drove off, second the matrix looking wall when the bird flew into it! I must admit at this time I did nearly choke on my popcorn.
This was one mixed up film, a film that was a bit of everything and nothing all at the same time I kept being lulled into the fact that it was going to be a horror film then we get scenes with the men in black? Wasn’t sure what that was all about at all.
However there are about two points where things start to fall into place about what’s happening one when the stoner and the girl are in the glass lift and you see all the entities with items that were in the cellar and right near the end when Sigourney Weaver explains about the gods and the sacrifices, all very bizarre yet partly entertaining film, not good by any stretch of the imagination but entertaining kind of, not a blockbuster movie but not a B movie either somewhere in-between and that’s what it is really a nowhere film destined for the 50p bin sooner than you think
5/10 being generous really, watch the trailer you get the whole film.
