That movie was ninety-six minutes of talking and people turning their heads dramatically while wearing strange contacts.

According to the description on Netflix, this is a movie about six friends who go into the mountains and are harassed and stalked by the Donner Party. Ok. That doesn’t sound so bad, right? In fact, I could really get behind a movie like that. That’s why I added it to my instant queue, after all!

The beginning of the movie told me it would be of B-quality. That’s fine. I like B-movies. They float my boat, so-to-speak. A scene from once upon a time when the Donner Party happened, wasn’t so bad. It gave me hope for the rest of the movie. Five minutes passed of relatively normal dialog, which was fine. Everyone likes a good realistic set-up. Then ten minutes had passed and it had been all talk. Fifteen minutes. Twenty minutes. Thirty. By the time something happened? I forgot what I was watching.

I kind of enjoyed the ending, though I’d really describe it more as a psychological thriller than a horror, it did have some moments that made me jump. To be fair, there was also a fair amount of gore involved. When all is said and done, it’s not quite as bad as Netflix rated it, but it’s pretty close.

Overall Opinion – 2/5
