Good points among the bad ones

Right out of the gate this film loses points from the really negative characters, NOT actors, but the actual plot characters. They are ALL flawed and very unlikeable people. I have to admit that with 15 minutes I really did not care if they lived or died. The main character is a self-absorbed yuppy who has more of a concern for his "paid cash" car than the obviously dangerous situation they are in and his brother is an even more self-absorbed Millennial who is more interested in boffing his extremely annoying girlfriend than doing much more than whining the entire film.

The girlfriend's girlfriend was so detached from the predicament that I began to suspect that she was somehow involved in the danger. While the others are beginning to awaken to the evil going on around them, she is hitting on one of the other characters!

The acting was so-so, but I have seen MUCH worse and I blame the condition of the acting mostly on the stiff and emotional lacking dialogue...you can only be as good as the lines you are given.

Overall, the plot reminded of dozens of other movies based on the very same story, and there really are NO new ideas blended into it which might have freshened it up!

Not worth the time or effort to watch it!

Not a bad plot but...

In my humble opinion I think the rule playing is to naive or should I say to innocent. For example: when they switch to evil and they do not notice all the difference between them... Don't know it feels not right. But again it's just my opinion don't meant to offend nobody, as matter of fact the story plot it is very intriguing, sequence of scene are great and the content goes smooth with the time.

A genius story impaired by low-budget & amateur acting.

I wrote this after reading reviews rating the movie very low. I cannot agree, but I mean the story of the movie NOT the overall quality.

Why so? The Wendigo Myth (demonic man-eater of Native Americans) was among my research topics, when I prepared to publish an ebook about it.

In this movie here, two very decisive merits are obscured by the mediocre acting and the low budget: Not once is the story sacrificed for known movie tropes, on the contrary.

Two brothers and their friend had planned an outdoor guys-only weekend. The younger brother of the protagonist brings his girlfriend & her bestie along, as his latent anger issues and unreliability make him be a princess about the guys-only agreement of the three. Despite seeing suspicious, odd, or weird pictures on discovered 'trail cameras', they ignore their surroundings, eager to forget their routines and relax.

Weird things start happening, and step by step we realize that a group of ghosts, phantoms, or demons SEEMS to be the cause of it. Step by step the movie tells the story without messing with the audience and without red herrings totally stupid.

While clearly no masterpiece, we get a fresh take on the Wendigo Myth and the 'Cabin in the Woods´ type of horror film, which made me stay OK with the limited acting and low budget limits.

I could not do it better, and I once did try indie and fan-film production of my stories, so I at least know that silly dream of younger years.

In the final, the Wendigo itself explains some stuff, like the academic project in their ignorance having used the same hut as Wendigo hunters did before.

The screenwriting was solid, and not one actor spoiled it due to narcissism or activism that does not belong into entertainment movies. Albeit, one actor sure had butt-dildo problems, if I am asked about it.

So, if subtle but new story progress is OK with you, this may be one of the modern movies worth watching, as they no longer worship the mistakes of those before them.

Also: The Native American origins of the myth are mentioned, but the movie did so without a pathetic pseudo-need of anti-racist sermon and denial of our guilt that we so often had to endure before.

A simple, yet consistent outdoor horror movie with a classic streak and some subtle new efforts. I really think that is not trash at all. A better-funded remake could become a masterpiece.
