When a group of American journalists (Aaron Ashmore, Cindy Sampson, Meghan Heffern and Trevor Matthews) heads to Poland to investigate the death of a Yankee backpacker who disappeared without a trace, they find a creepy village — and a mysterious shrine that suggests strange activities have taken place there. Director Jon Knautz also penned the story to this psychological thriller that throws the travelers into hellishly inhospitable conditions.
Another recent horror which packs twenty minutes of fine climax onto an hour of fluff. I was hoping the main dude would stay and become a member of this strange demon defense force, but instead they apparently forgot to finish the script? The subtext is cool and gives a fresh tweak to the age-old "hostile yokels" trope. Also, the grieving mom gave a great performance. Too bad the obnoxious lead was in that scene.
