Comments– This one was a shocker. It bears a pretty generic cover over at the Netflix Instant Queue section, and I probably wouldn’t have ever watched it if it wasn’t for a poster at Goodreads suggesting it.
Here is what I wrote about it at the Goodreads site:
“I figured this would be a typical teen slasher film with lots of gratuitous violence and sex, but that wasn’t the case at all. Well, ok, there was a lot of violence, but nothing compared to movies like Hostel or The Descent. I don’t want to say too much about this in fear of giving away anything, but you can expect a thought-provoking movie (just because the complexity of the film, not because it makes a bold statement about the human condition), and a well-written story with interesting characters.”
I will say a little bit more about the film here though. The story follows a women’s struggle to survive after heading out on a boat with a friend (and his group of friends) crashes in a sudden storm in the Bermuda Triangle. After the boat crashes, they climb aboard a giant (what looks like) cruise ship. What follows in one of the more original stories I have seen in horror films recently. Though some complain that there is no “pay off” to the build at the end, I completely disagree and thoroughly enjoyed this one. I highly recommend you give it a viewing because it is on Netflix’s Instant Queue service right now. Good.
