| Using the movies own words: F@!# NO!
There's good low budget and there's bad low budget, this movie is horrible low budget.  How many times did they put an awkward and horribly misplaced "f@!# no!" in there? I dare you to count.

1. The actors are bad, all bad. Most of them sound like they aren't talking, but reading their words from a piece of paper. Not believable at all, where did they get these people, craigslist?! 

2. Lighting is really bad, at times you can't even see what you're suppose to see. When the characters are driving to this cabin of theirs, you mostly see darkness with two or four headlights moving, which gets boring quickly. This goes on for way too long which brings me to my next point: 

3. The movie drags on. Typical low budget movies, they contain a ton of unneeded scenes and meaningless conversation. They could have cut down a lot, there's too many moments of meaningless nothing in this. 

4. I can't stand obvious errors in movies. Two cars drive down a dark road in the middle of nowhere, the first car stops and there's no sign of the other car behind them? Very likely.  The characters are talking about how lovely the cabin area is, when it's PITCH black outside, unless they have excellent (and inhuman) eyesight, there's no way they could tell. 

As for being scary, not at all. The special effects are horrible, the movie tries to be funny when it's so not and in short, this movie was nothing but boring. Oh and the twist at the end makes no sense. They really tried to create a smart and unexpected ending, but they failed miserably.

Avoid!
