Plot: Five friends play a game in a ”mysterious” forest with a long history as a beacon for troubled young people contemplating suicide.
Review: For years, the Covington forest has been shrouded in mystery, with a dark past as a final destination for troubled youths. Undeterred by the news of a classmate who recently took his life in those woods, five teens journey into the forest for an evening of flashlight games and ghost stories. But their plans go awry when the friends awaken a demonic presence, an unseen evil that will seize upon their deepest fears-and plunge them into a nightmare of absolute terror.
We all know the drill here. Anytime a group of mates head to a forest, cabin, whatever, you already know that none of them are going home alive. In this latest take, 5 teens (typical) head off to the forest to play a game of hide and seek, only to be stalked by a mysterious presence that will kill them off, one by one.
While this is certainly nothing new by any means, I will give this one a thumbs up for their effort, and the added effects of the demonic wolf and not to forget the shadow creature (which looked abit like a bad version of GROOT).
Suspense – Yep there is that
Horror – Hmmmm… Seen scarier
Acting – Passable
This movie was okay, but I have seen better, and there were a few things that stood out that some of the characters should not have done. I wont say what those are, as you can see for yourself, but, anyone with common sense just wouldn’t do …..
Verdict: Scare factor supplied by Groot!
