2012's Hidden in the Woods, also by Valladares, is a neo-Grindhouse film that's true to its shocker roots in its unapologetic, out-there nature and its energetic pacing. Downhill, however, lacks on the fun-times idea front, being too straightforward and by-the-numbers in tone and much too slack in energy-- save an H.P. Lovecraft ending that feels out of place-- as well as feels awkward in acting and tone. Bad combo.
