Quality film in many ways, but ultimately lacking a depth of character and story...

Well, this is just one of those films that after you finish watching ityou feel (at least I did) like 'Why the hell did I watch this in thefirst place...?

The elements within the film were done well; the acting was quite goodall around. But there just was no real substance behind the story atall. If they could have just given the story and and script a littlemore thought so that it actually lead somewhere, then it COULD possiblyhave packed a LOT bigger punch at the end. The frustrating thing isthat the elements making up the film were good enough to keep youinterested and thinking that something just MIGHT happen to make itsatisfying and worthwhile. But then after all this buildup you are notreally left with much...

Good acting and some suspenseful situations are just not really enoughto carry a film. Perhaps a more substantial or meaningful backgroundstory might have helped. BUT, if you are looking for ANY kind ofserious Horror or substance, then likely you will not find this filmvery satisfying at all.

People compare it to 'DELIVERANCE' To me, that is a TOTAL insult to'DELIVERANCE' YES, you have a vague 'backwoods' type people vs. citypeople vibe going on, and there definitely is some unpleasantness thatmakes it tense. But it all just goes bloody NOWHERE. And please DON'Tget me started on the ending. And, I don't see how they could POSSIBLYhave achieved a more pointless and unsatisfying ending.

I THINK the direction that the film makers were trying to achieve wasalong the lines of a lot of European films that are more dramaticallyoriented. You know, like the ones where it's all 'talk' but not muchreally happens. With that kind of film, the enjoyment is in thesubtlety and depth of the 'Drama' and character interactions. To me, itseems like that is what they are trying to do here, but with a tense,'backwoods' setting. The point is, that if you are FOCUSING primarilyon that element, then you'd better do it VERY well! That means that youneed to provide a LOT more depth to the characters and perhaps MUCHdeeper insights into who and what they are. But, this is lacking here.So, unfortunately you don't have that kind of satisfying feeling ofboth having deeply related to the people or their emotional situations.So, all that is left is the 'story' or 'action', such as it is. But,I'm sorry people, it just simply isn't there...

So, despite some good acting and a few well executed tense situations,the film seems to be lacking in any serious depth, substance, orcharacter development that would genuinely involve the audience...
