These are some thirsty kids
This movie is an odd combination of comedy, horror and up-close nature photography. Aside from the hackneyed concept of 'kids go camping / partying / whatever, and get murdered', which is trite at best, there was a somewhat compelling revenge story at play here too. I liked how these archetypical characters lived up to their cliched horror tropes, but went beyond, with some interesting depth to them. The story was uneven in a few places, as was the acting, but then there were some genuinely creepy moments too. It had a gritty, almost real feel to it, and was shot pretty decently (and the actresses in it were hot, which definitely helped). Overall it was a fairly fun ride, with hiccups here and there, but the ending tied it all together, albeit in a typical fashion.
