If you've grown up in the country you will remember that as a child the hedgerows, bridges and hollows could take on an eerie quality as twilight set in. And even though they are hardly as scary as an urban alleyway, country lanes on a summer evening can have something of a tunnel like claustrophobia. This film attempts to transfer this sense of the uncanny to the screen.

It is successful to some extent. Two young people, Tom and Lucy, are looking for an hotel in rural Ireland. The build up is reasonable, even if it is a little sub-Werewolf in London in terms of the 'local pub for local people' at the start. The driving around in a Vauxhall Omega looking for the hotel before it gets dark is well handled too.

Once darkness descends, apprehension and disorientation descend into outright fear as very strange things start to happen. Figures emerge from the darkness, only to disappear silently into the gloom. Again, this is well handled and despite having less than by-the-second shocks, the pacing is pretty good.

The film is undermined by a sense of the ridiculous, and also a sense that the 'terror' that is out there could be somewhat neutralised by either Tom or Lucy getting hold of 'it' and giving it a good hiding. Alas, neither is up to the job. The script, such as it is, is fair, although one or two lines - 'violence has a mother and a brother' - are rather lumpy.

Despite these misgivings, this is a generally intelligent film and though they might not win any Oscars, the actors ply their trade with conviction. On that theme, the 'making of' extra is quite interesting. A diverting and not un-original little film.

Genuinely effective British chiller which is a little like Straw Dogs via the Blair Witch Project. For much of the film we are in the company of a young couple who are in their car, lost in the middle of nowhere as night begins to fall. Having been in a similar position, this was enough to give me chills and the film becomes increasingly nerve-shredding as it goes on.

I'm quite surprised by the negative reviews on here. I thought it refreshing to see a taught horror that doesn't rely on found footage or loud noises for scares, rather building a real sense of tension and dread. Although it does resort to some horror cliches towards the end, the film retains a real sense of ambiguity, not least that the trigger for all that happens may have taken place prior to where the film actually begins.

Worth a watch.

Tom (Iain De Caestecker ) is taking his not yet girlfriend Lucy (Alice Englert) to an Irish festival. They stop at a pub where an undisclosed incident happens in the pub, that we may or may not know what really happened. Tom convinces Lucy they should stop at the remote Kilairney House Hotel. While looking for the hotel, they get lost and attacked by a local.

Nearly the entire movie is filmed in a car. The fact that they were lost going around in circles unable to try a different route seemed a bit far fetched. The whole premise had me scratching my head. I still haven't figured out what happened so terrible in the pub to warrant the harassment. And the ending was just messed up.

This was terrible by horror standards and was too inane to be a decent thriller. Redbox took me for another one.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity.

I'm surprised by the number of negative reviews of this film - I thought it was rather good. The idea of driving round in circles, quite lost, and only guided by misleading signposts (anyone who has driven through Stoke on Trent will know the feeling), as the evening draws in - and to keep coming back to the same place - was very nicely done, and the reaction of the couple went from light-hearted banter, through irritated mystification to panicked terror in a most convincing way. I like the fact that you never quite knew what was going to happen next; there was all kinds of possibilities - what happened at the pub ?, what was the significance of the cabin and the "keep out" sign, the string of dead rodents across the road ? In the end it all went a bit Wolf Creek, and the final scene was a complete cop-out, but this didn't spoil a good well-paced decent length thriller. And all done with a cast of precisely three; good, naturalistic performances from De Caestecker and Englert, who behaved like anyone would in a similar situation - no heroics, just paralysed terror.

This is much better than some other reviews suggest.
It's another well worn path but this is worth watching,the cast weren't told what was going to happen to their characters during or before filming,so all the reactions are natural.
Tom & Alice are going to a music festival somewhere in Ireland,after a stop at the pub they set off.Tom reveals he has booked them into a hotel for the night,before going to the festival.To help them find thier way,they're told to wait for someone who they can follow.After pointing in the general direction,the landrover they've been following turns off.

What follows is a never ending trail through dark country lanes,going round in circles following signs to a hotel that doesn't seem to exist.The couple are also tormented by something or someone out of sight but Lucy is convinced someone is out there.
The first rule in these sorts of films is cut off your victims,the car is thier sanctuary but it could also be thier graves.Lots of dark roads,woods & the question,was that a person out there?

Yes it is a bit old hat but it does have.a certain amount of tension & it's not too predictable.Overall it's ok.
