This dark, bloody imaginative fairy tale about a camping trip that turns into deadly carnage draws on such influences as Lord of the Rings, Friday the 13th and The Devil’s Backbone. The story follows 12-year-old outcast Sam who, along with his troop of cub scouts and their teenage supervisors, camp in woods rumored to house a mysterious and deadly werewolf. Inquisitive Sam, certain the woods are inhibited by something evil, soon stumbles upon a feral young boy and eventually, his evil psychopathic mentor. But convincing the others of the danger falls on deaf ears, and soon for the non-believers, dead ears, as ingenious traps begin to take their violent toll on the group. A wildly entertaining “killer in the woods” actioner.
