An engaging isolationist villain, with quirky characters delivering a worthy emotional feature
A noticeable air of dread and isolation that builds right up to the end…an impressive debut by McDermott.
If you are a fan of reading or watching murder mysteries, you would love to watch this film and watch it unfold.
A lot of heart, good acting, atmosphere to spare, and a finale that will punch you in the gut.
A creepy, atmospheric indie horror flick that takes a relatively familiar set-up and puts its own unique twists into it.
Is inspired by true crimes committed on the Appalachian Trail…
Interesting atmosphere and a mysterious villain…some good quality stuff.
