I cannot believe how many positive ratings this film has received.
I knew I was in trouble when I found the female lead pretty problematic when she said she didn't need rescuing and then asked the male lead to protect her within a couple sentences. All the characters are dull and unoriginal. The dialogue is atrocious and cheesy, the effects are all typical, glitchy CGI and the film is littered with jump scares.
This is EVERYTHING you've seen before.
So, this movie kind of touched me to the point that I read up a bit on the story behind it and how it was made.
The chemistry between the two leads was incredibly organic, and it turns out that they are married in real life. The other actors were mostly just people they talked into being in the film unpaid and there was little concrete dialogue written. This, along with some handheld cameras, cause this film to feel more…
I've seen this film about four times, and according to most people, that's 3 1/2 times too many.
I know why I really enjoy this film and why most others don't as well. The premise is original and the characters were great. Though Shiloh is not the best actor, Noah stole the show and plays an engaging anti-villan.
I assume most of the audience can't get past that these guys are using a dangerous, insane naked chick for sex. BUT if you can stomach that, the way they display carnal urges is interesting, in my opinion.
A nice, new rape-revenge movie of the new age.
