Premise: Three guys driving back from a snowboarding vacation in Colorado. They find their lives changed in Pa. when they wreck their car in a snowstorm. A helpful backwoodsman gives them assistance.
What makes this film enjoyable to me is, it is written well, I like all the characters. The three snowboarding freinds are all likeable. The backwoodsman isn't the most appealing looking character, but darn it, he has his charm AND I understand his motivation for what he does. He is not just some mindless, demented nutcase.
The other characters whom I will not mention due to not wanting to add spoiler alerts, let's just say They are written well for this story. ( I could see a sequel) In essence IT ALL FITS. I like the fact that normally in a Horror, you have women running, bouncing and falling to get away from the "whatever". In this movie, it revolves around men. I like that. Nice subtle twist.
This isn't a movie to watch with Grandma either, it is disturbing on a primal level. I liked it start to finish. Gore and effects where perfect. Story well written, even though the guys were from Jersey and in Pa. I can forgive the cute Canadian accents, I think it would have been spookier to set it in Canada. But that is just a tiny tiny glitch. This movie is one EVERYONE should watch. Elements, torture, snow, blood, survival, pain....lots of pain
