review by
Mike Haberfelner

One morning, Brian (Vernon Taylor) receives a call from his brother Keith (Spencer Weitzel) that he urgently needs help with "something", and even though they had a bid fall-out years ago and Keith has since turned into an alcoholic recluse, Brian agrees to drive up to his cabin in the woods and help him with whatever-it-is - and Brian's girlfriend Molly (Faith Kearns) insists on tagging along. Once at the cabin, both Brian and Molly get the feeling that Keith is just someone who's lost and who just needs some help getting back on track, and they offer to take him back to the city with them and stay with them at least for a time - after all they do have a spare room at their place. But then, once it's dark, Keith takes Brian for a walk through the woods and shows him what he actually needs help with: The body of Lenny (Aaron Pyle) that needs to be buried after Keith had shot him earlier. Brian downright refuses, but then Lenny comes back to life, attacks Keith, and to save his brother, Brian hits Lenny over the head with a rock and kills him. Now he's in it to his neck, and of course helps Keith to bury the body - but now refuses to help his brother any more. However when Brian and Molly want to leave the next day, they find the ignition wires of their car tampered with, so Keith and Brian walk to town to get new wires - and when they return, they find Molly isn't alone but has a visitor, who knocked on her door badly injured, and she of course patched up his wounds. And this visitor is, of course, Lenny - and Lenny has an account to settle with Keith and Brian ...


A pretty cool piece of genre cinema that for the longest time intentionally underplays its horror undercurrents by keeping the viewer in the dark about what's going on, only giving out hints every now and again to pretty much create suspense throughout, to eventually unload everything in a nail-biting finale that goes on quite a bit longer than expected, as in best genre tradition, death isn't always the end. And thanks also to a directorial effort that's high on atmosphere and subtle enough to give its suspense room to breathe, and a solid small ensemble bringing their well fleshed out characters to life rather nicely, this has turned out to be a very entertaining horror flick.
