    ★★★

    You'll notice that many of the bad reviews and ratings are by those who have seen the original film.

    ★★½

    Slow paced Belgium horror film about a group of Boy Scouts and their leaders who head into the woods on a camping trip; only to be targeted by a monster? half boy half werewolf? whatever it is, they're in danger.

    For myself the ending let the film down; was pissed so little thought had gone into making it more worthwhile.
