review by
Mike Haberfelner

Gillian (Will Jones) has taken Jackie (Cassandre Wallace) on a camping trip to the forest where they've first kissed for a few romantic hours that culminate in him proposing to her - and when she says no, it breaks his hears. But that hardly matters as in a manner of minutes they're both brutally slaughtered by a masked man ...

The next day, Gillian and Jackie's friends Caroline (Amanda Bourne), Molly (Ella Palmer), Jane (Annabella Rich), Simon (Omar Mahmood Lagares) and Will (Max Pill) arrive at the same campsite, and they're not at all surprised that they don't find Gillian and Jackie, figuring they just needed some "alone time". So they're having a little party round the campfire that culminates in the obligatory telling of a scary story - pretty much standard stuff about a psycho who has escaped from a nearby asylum roaming the woods looking for campers to kill ... when suddenly a masked man jumps out of the bushes, scaring the heebigeebies out of Jane - not so the others as they've long suspected that's exactly the prank Simon would play. And of course, it was just a prank. Jane runs off, and Simon goes after her to apologize ... and is killed by a masked killer. Eventually, Caroline can catch up with Jane and calm her down and take her back to the campfire, but when Simon fails to show up again, the others start to worry, and all but Jane go look for him ... and get lost in the woods. They happen upon a weird stranger (Martin W. Payne) who promises to lead them out of the forest, but he's brutally slaughtered right in front of them. Now our heroes know they have to run - but not knowing where they are or where they're headed, they're at a bad disadvantage against their predator ...


A remake of Dustin Feruson's Terror at Black Tree Forest from 2010 - a film I admit I haven't seen as of this writing - this movie at hand is a fun slasher movie that doesn't exactly re-invent the genre but does people its standard situation with colourful and fleshed out characters, treats things with a certain levity, and really makes the most out of the premises, especially when considering the modest budget. The result is no cinematic revelation maybe, but a really fun piece of genre cinema.
