Ever since Rosie (Ciara Bailey) has cheated on Dan (Tad Morari) with Eric (James Devlin), their relationship has been somewhat on the brink. But ultimately, Dan has come around to forgive Rosie, and thus takes her out on what he perceives to be a romantic walk through the woods, with the culmination being him proposing to her at a spot with a beautiful view of the village and coastline. She turns him down though, basically feeling hoodwinked by the whole thing and still having so much to work through before she can even think of marriage. So rather obviously, their walk back to their car is less than friction-free - only they never reach their car but just seem to be going in circles. Also up on the viewpoint, the view of the village and coastline is gone. And their mobiles don't have reception and the phones' compasses just go haywire. With no other option, they walk for hours to get out of the woods, but never manage to find what should be a nearby road - and they also notice that despite all the time passing, the sun doesn't move one bit, and likewise their watches seem to be frozen in time. What's worse is, in time thirst sets in, and they can't find any other liquid than plenty of bottles of wine just dispersed in the area - what with Rosie being a recovering alcoholic. Also Rosie starts to hear voices, while Dan starts to see a figure in the distance that later turns out to be Eric - or actually not really Eric but something sinister in his likeness. And then Dan disappears from one moment to the next, and Rosie understandably freaks out even more, going through a living nightmare all on her own ...

 

Basically, this movie is just two people walking in the woods, no big effects, no spectacle, no CGI monsters or massive gore - but it's what writer/director Richard Waters makes of it that's quite amazing: A well-structured story that creates its own maze, a maze that doesn't make sense by purely logical standards but perfect sense in the film's grander scheme. And thankfully the film stays clear of any complex explanations or the complusion to bring things to a meaningful ending - after all, the film has created its own nightmare world, so it's only logical it should follow nightmare rules up to the very end. And atmosphere-heavy camerawork and a pair of solid leads further help to make this a pretty awesome genre trip!
