Poorly written, horrendous dialog, and an overall lack of suspense makes for the worst film of 2013 so far

Rating: 1/10


First off, I have to say that I was genuinely excited to see this film.
The synopsis for the film, and the overall idea sounded like it could
be a promising addition to the thriller genre. Instead, I walked out of
the film feeling underwhelmed and, ultimately, cheated. The film holds
a runtime of a little below an hour and thirty minutes and, dear Lord
do you feel every pain staking minute. The characters are wildly under
developed and lucid, especially Kate Bosworth's character. While the
film should focus on the girl's relationships with one another, it
doesn't…it doesn't even come close to touching it. Instead, it goes
right into introducing the evil male characters without ever developing
any sentimental feelings for any of the three main girls played by Lake
Bell, Kate Bosworth and Katie Aselton (the director). Forgive me for
the lack of information of these characters, it is only due to the fact
that each of them are so uninteresting and depraved that I can't even
remember who was who. The direction and writing on this film is vastly
inept, taking what should be breath taking scenes and molding them into
scenes of ultra violence and shock that never materializes to be
nothing less than terrible. The cast is trying their best to make this
female rip off of Deliverence work, but ultimately it comes down to the
direction of Katie Aselton that makes this film nothing more than a
made for TV movie on Lifetime. Lake Bell tries to put the scream queen
crown on but, yet again, it is bogged down by terrible direction and
even worse, a horrible script from Mark Duplass. Overall, the film is
stupid, undercooked, over acted, and under directed. This is a student
film with Hollywood talent, which makes it an especially grueling
experience and the worst film of 2013 thus far.
