"There's nothing out there but God's little creatures, more scared of you than you are of them."
Just Before Dawn is a textbook horror film. That being said, it's not clichéd either. There's the campiness, the stupid kids venturing out into the unknown, the messengers who deliver eerie warnings, and the villain(s) who are products of incest. From a slasher-horror perspective, I really don't see anything wrong with this film.
None of characters seem too unlikable, as is the case most horrors. The scenery is beautiful, and the landscape is used to help drive the story. The audience is teased with tons of suspense, and it is difficult to decipher whether or not it is a practical joke or the "Mountain Twins." The suspense is the main horror of this movie, with almost no bloodshed in the entire film. This is a great movie, and I really have no complaints. Very underrated, could use a sequel. 7/10
