About the Movie

Just behind the grammar school and past the ‘No Trespassing’ sign is the shortcut through the woods that nobody dares to take: People in town still whisper about the creepy old guy who lives back there and the kids that disappeared near his home a long time ago. Now a group of high school seniors has decided to find out just what the shovel-wielding weirdo may be hiding. But even if they can uncover his shocking secret, will they survive what happens when the truth is finally unleashed? Dave Franco (PRIVILEGED, GREEK), Katrina Bowden (30 ROCK), Shanon Woodward (THE RICHES) and Drew Seeley (ANOTHER CINDERELLA STORY) star in this first twisted shocker from Executive Producer Adam Sandler that takes a whole new route to horror.

Customer Reviews

Great movie

I thought this movie was very well scripted. I had a very fun time watching it. I thought the acting was great, and I wish more people knew about it. Overall it was a great flick for anyone in the mood for a good thriller.

Good, ending sucked.

It was pretty good, four stars for the whole movie, but the ending tottally killed it. If they had cut off the last two minutes it would have been better.

Good twist, but predictable ending

I was looking for a good horror movie with a different plot that didn't involve vampires , zombies, werewolves, etc. This movie was a really good choice. The acting wasn't quite as terrible as the majority of horror movies today, and the script was very well written. The deaths were not over the top gory, or anything. As most of the other reviews say, up until the last approximately two minutes of the film, it was going strong. I could tell what the very ending was going to be after only a few scenes, but there was a lot of missing in between steps so I continued watching. Excluding the final scene, the movie wasn't too predictable except for a few points in the film. If it weren't for the final scene, I would've rated this five stars.
