review by
Mike Haberfelner

Lori (Erin McGarry) and Christopher (Michael Draper) just want to get away from it all, and thus go camping deep into the woods the remotest area of nowhere, USA, to enjoy the ultimate freedom of Mother Nature - or what they take for it that is, they're by no means totally averse to creature comforts that civilisation does provide. And when they hear a single gunshot at night, they jump and are almost ready to run ... and they should have, as the next day, Christopher is brutally woken up and dragged out of his tent by a couple of deranged brothers (Dennis Fitzpatrick, Nikki Flinn) who drag him over to their cabin, strip him and keep him in the food storage - for just that, food. Somehow though, Lori has managed to get away, and she tries to make it to the next village - but when she hitches a ride, she notices only waaay too late that it's with one of the brothers, who's more than a little interested to not let her get away ...


Removed is a quite captivating survival shocker that manages to drag one in via expert use of unusual camerawork, including staying (physically) closer than usual to the characters, to a poin where it's (intentionally) uncomfortable, using weird camera angles, working with suggestions rather than actually showing everything, and staying (seemingly) too long with certain shots to create creepiness. Now add to that a script that focuses on the essential rather than losing itself in explaining everything away, and a very capable skeleton cast, and you've got yourself a pleasantly unnerving movie!
