First off, once I realized the opening music was by the Great Lake Swimmers, I realized I was watching a Canadian flick and very keen. Overall I was not disappointed. Acting was fair to good for the most part. The story itself was somewhat unique and each character had sufficient personal baggage to keep things interesting.
Here are my pros/cons
Pros: not your typical story, Setting was excellent (nothing like a real snowy landscape to add an air of realism), Dialogue for the most part was well written, nice little scare scene when watching the video tape, Some not anticipated brutality
Cons; confusing ending, possibly meant to be that way, The jock's balding scalp. Come on, this was ridiculous. When we first see him about to come out of his house I actually truly thought he was wearing a cheap Halloween fake bald head. I thought maybe it was a joke, but evidently not. It is hands down the worst make up blunder I've seen, quite obvious this guy had a full head of hair.
So, playing off the Great Lake Swimmers soundtrack against the worst fake bald head ever, I give this movie a 5.
