I have never been a fan of this film. I find it to be extremely derivative and boring, which confuses even me considering every other Slasher and Survival flick recycles elements of each of the films preceding them. The film is technically proficient, with beautiful cinematography, an excellent sense of timing for the scares, and thoughtful make-up designs. What turns me off immediately is when the characters and scenarios are completely unbelievable in a film that otherwise takes itself very seriously. This is most apparent when the protagonists leap from a towering forest ranger station into the trees, miraculously catching the branches and swinging to safety, only to battle the mutants in the trees. There are plenty of obvious nods to classics like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and several good gore sequences, but the film never contributes anything new or different to the genre. I cant tell you exactly why I dont like it, since the acting, filming, and FX are all above average, I just dont. A group of friends must battle to survive off a backwoods road after being stranded and stalked by an deformed group of inbreds.
