PROS: One thing I can say about this film that I liked 100% of the time was the intensity. The director really knew what a horror movie needed when it came to build up of tension. From opening scene to closing there was this aura that the film had about it that made me feel paranoid. With a slasher, like this movie, it is vital to keep that sort of vibe to the movie the whole time in order for the movie to not fall into the "basic" trap.
CONS: Something that bothered me to no ends\ was how stupid some of the characters were. Like I don't understand how hard it is to hide into the woods, or to whisper your line instead of shout it if the killers right next to you. To add on, there were some things the film didn't answer or even acknowledge. It's OK if a film ignores small pieces or insignificant ones, but if the entire movie hinges on one idea being plausible they better be damn well sure they discuss that idea. This film not only ignored it, but they also depicted the characters who made that idea happen as being people who couldn't pull off the stunt. That disconnect from plot to character development was too large to overlook, and it even took me out of the movie. The final thing is the ending. Wow! how terrible is this ending? Let me tell you, it is worthless and stupid. I'll give you a hint. A brutalized person goes into town, and no one even looks at them twice, even though they are covered in mud, bleeding, and disgruntled looking.
