      Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com Patton knows what he wants from the material, stripping away anything that could remotely resemble artifice... Rated: 3/4 Jan 25, 2018 Full Review Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter Too subtle for its own good. Dec 15, 2017 Full Review Noel Murray Los Angeles Times Honorable in intent, but dreary in execution. Dec 14, 2017 Full Review Adam Patterson Film Pulse A slow-burn horror flick that never quite goes anywhere, making the proceedings feel inconsequential and lackluster. Rated: 3.5/10 Apr 9, 2019 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Backwoods torture porn where only the characters on the screen fail to see what's coming. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 25, 2018 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed A lackluster and forgettable survival thriller with a terrible script. Jul 30, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Donna F I think it's should be less violence. I really liked it. Scary to me because something like that these days could happen. if I wanted to watch a scary movie this would do it for me. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/21/24 Full Review Audience Member What could have been a psychologically disturbing film was made bland and boring. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Highly unlikeable lead characters with low emotional maturity and intelligence who think drinking two bottles of wine and smoking up after a day's hike in the heat while travelling with a child is a good idea. Speaking of the child, typical kid in a Hollywood movie: spoiled, mouthy, and annoying! Meh, I just kept watching to see if the lot of them would die. Lots of vapid filler dialogue trying to seem profound/meaningful but wasn't. I skipped forward through much of it. I love wilderness adventure movies which is why I bothered in the first place but ugh, don't start this one if you have other options. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Nothing new, it could be worse, the acting was pretty good just needed a little better storyline. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member cheesy And eye rolling. Many plot holes Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member *Spoilers* This movie was not good. The script was poorly written, and the main characters are so unlikeable that there wasn't much of a loss when one of them dies. The two women were pretty stupid throughout, somewhat annoying, having immature conversations that wasted a lot of time. The villain didn't really have much to him, and wasn't scary. How can you both fall asleep in the middle of the night when you know someone is after you? How can you even sleep at all? Then when he's dead you wait an extra day and sleep next to his dead body? A lot of weird decisions made here, like if you're being tracked down by a murderer I don't think yelling at the top of your lungs repeatedly is a good idea.
