This is such a refreshing change from the crop of screaming teen in a cabin kind of movies that seem to be popping out by the dozen.

The story is strong, the acting is mostly great, and the production is well thought out and implemented. There are perhaps one or two silly moments, but on the whole the movie comes together well and is a good watch.
