Great low budget film!

Budget was just about nothing. But it was very high quality. I wouldn't watch it again only because part of the entertainment was anticipating what would happen and why. There's no exciting action because it's about how the protagonist is dealing with what's happening. The only reason why I gave it a 5 was because it was too slow and was not a full story in my opinion. But I could see a fuller and longer revamp (if with the same writer, director etc) being rated much higher.

Mood is good, but a racoon is smarter than the main character.

Slow burn with correct atmosphere and mood for an apocalyptic event, but a Racoon is smarter than the main character. Very good attempt though for $175 budget.

$175.00? Seriously?

Say what you will about "Raccoon Valley", but the fact that this movie was anywhere near as good as it turned out to be is amazing, on a $175.00 budget. I just watched "Dogman 2: Revenge of the Litter", which had a one million dollar budget, and was far, FAR worse than "Raccoon Valley".

I really didn't have any issue with the main character, a deaf woman, being as low key and deadpan as she was. The only issue that I had with her is that she was played as being far less observant than virtually every deaf person that I know is. I work with several deaf people, and each and every one of them is pretty keenly aware as to what is going on around them at any given moment. The deaf woman in this movie is pretty much oblivious to everything going on around her. The protagonist's low key approach and demeanor could be attributable to her determination to live a normal life, despite her physical challenges. For the most part, she tends to act like any other person might, under the same circumstances.

Yes, it's a slow burn, but not every horror movie needs to be a special effects extravaganza, or a blitz of buckets and buckets of guts and gore. Mood, atmosphere, setting, and circumstance can all be very effective in place of torture porn and/or gallons of blood per minute. One of my favorite horror films of all time is the 1963 version of "The Haunting". There is virtually no blood, no guts, no prolonged scenes of torture, almost no special effects, and it is considered to be a horror classic.

I wouldn't proclaim "Raccoon Valley" to be a cult classic, but it is a solid effort. Moreover, it's a nice change of pace from the usual parade of stupid people making the checklist mistakes and idiotic decisions depicted in just about 99% of horror movies these days. I wasn't going to watch this movie because it was described as slow, and because of some of the negative reviews that I read. All things considered, I ended up being content that I gave it a chance. You might end up being pleasantly surprised, too.
