    Simple, short popcorn but wonderfully accomplished and put together. There are moments of logical frustration and points where you yearn for more story but this is the equivalent of a short story and is a perfect late summer/early autumn film for a good shriek.

    It is the height of frustration.

    There's definitely some interesting ideas here but too many loose threads to make up a film worth investing in.

    Fans of the subgenre may wanna give it a look but others can just steer clear.

    Despite some interesting ideas and a great setting the lack of basic logic or any real depth to the threat deflates this film. It's not poorly made, it just relies too much on aping BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and doesn't forge its own path. That this fellow attempted to survive these woods 'for 60 days' with as little as he took with him, and as unprepared as he was, it just seems silly. Maybe it was supposed to be EXTREME survival,…

    ★★★★

    A concept we have seen before that works because of the great acting and fantastic chemistry of the leads. Clever, fun, cute, and at times dark, this is the perfect summer cocktail.
