review by
Mike Haberfelner

Avery (Katelyn Marie Marshall) and Sam (Jeff McQuitty) are just friends ... only he wants more, so he persuades her to join him on a vacation at a lake - with another couple (Emily Hiott, Jon Michael Simpson), who conveniently will arrive only one day later, which gives Sam enough time and opportunity to make a move on Avery ... but even quite a bit of alcohol can keep her from turning him down. So it's not a perfect vacation from the get-go, but it gets more disappointing when their landlord Tad (Brady Burleson Johnson) shows up, who at first seems nice enough, but soon gets a little awkward, and seems a little alone - though he can't stop talking about his wife Janet (Kasey Givens), but when he's asked about her, he snaps - and that's quite despite the fact that he rather enjoys getting under everyone else's skin. Over the course of the day, his actions go from weird to disturbing, until he turns out to be a full-fledged psycho - and suddenly, Avery and Sam find themselves in a fight or flight situation, but it seems Tad has anticipated both ...


Not the reinvention of the wheel maybe, this is still a very likeable and very tense piece of genre fare, a slowburn psycho thriller that's old-fashioned in the best possible way: It puts an emphasis on characters and storytelling rather than spectacle, and puts atmosphere high on its agenda, with all the suspense as well as jump scares in the right spots, while also making the most out of its limited sets. And a solid cast of course doesn't hurt one bit, either. So if old school thrillers are your thing (and they should), then this is well worth checking out.
