review by
Mike Haberfelner

Rural Canada, the middle of winter: Siblings Laura (Jacqueline Godbout) and Tim (Aaron Heels) have invited their friends Amy (Paige Foskett) and Manny (Kenneth Bemister) on a trip to their parents' house for a bit of partying, while at the same time, coworkers Mitch (Liam Seamus Murphy), Sam (Thomas John Scott) and Sean (Steve Kasan) are on their way to a team building exercise - and both trips seem to be doomed before arrival, because in their respective cars, Tim and Sam prove to be dicks. But then only a couple of miles apart, both cars break down at pretty much the same time, and it's detected at both cars that the fuel lines have been cut. Then both parties are attacked by a monster that seems to be not from this earth or plane of existence or whatever. But fortunately, there's Kurdt Waidmann (Elvis Stojko) and his team (Damien Doepping, Robert Notman) who know exactly what they're dealing with here - some ancient demon - and how to fight it. The problem is, Waidmann, a priest fallen from grace, has an agenda of his own, and that agenda isn't exactly benign ...


Everything starts out like the typical monster slasher, with some almost stereotypical characters and an easily identifiable final girl. But this is a movie that, while delivering on the shock and violence front, really plays with genre expectations and surprises time and again with unusual twists and turns, throwing genre afficionados off the scent ever so often. And in combination with a genre savvy direction and a solid cast, this has then turned out to be a very entertaining watch.
