    ★★★

    Amusing Evil Dead-style haunted cabin adventure with surprisingly creative effects and make-up. Who doesn't love a good old-fashioned roundhouse kick that sends a zombie head flying through the air? Or how about the two characters who enter the film dressed as stage show magicians who conjure doves and flags but also do martial arts and keep their car stocked with weapons and ammo?

    Wonderfully strange and creepy when it wants to be, but the problem for me was that it doesn't want to be that very often. There's too much humor, way too much setup and too little weirdness. Also found it oddly predictable, which is unusual for me since I never even try to predict movies. That there was personality transplantation going on was obvious to me as soon as I had heard a few of the black characters talk in stereotypical…
