    Went to see this last night and was genuinely terrified. The fact that something like this can actually happen (I think it might have...was it based on a true story, does anyone know?) makes it seriously scary...I was even scared of coming across a bunch of scumbags on my way back up Henry Street afterwards!
    Thought the b/f was stupid to ever confront them in first place though, I reckon they should have just up and left

    Some gruesome scenes, where I had to look away...
    eg. when they were all taking turns to stab the b/f, and when that sharp yoke went right up thorough her foot *shudders*

    Brilliant twist at the end,
    I genuinely thought she was safe when she went into that place, but it turned out all the scumbags families were gathered together!

    Excellent horror movie, makes a change from all those "ghost"-y/serial killer ones!

    Not a bad movie at all, a bit far fetched in spots though. Grim ending.

    I thought it was excellent- was a struggle to sit through it- and more of a thriller than a horror but great stuff

    I watched this movie the other night and thought it was excellent. So I thought I would dig up the thread.

    A few silly plot issues, like why the f**k did they keep going back to the beach with the scumbags there and leaving their jeep outside! If this had been done a little bit better it could have been a classic, but as it is it is still an excellent movie.

    One of my favourite horror movies, the ending is so terrifying.

    This was deserving of a thread resurrection. Very enjoyable movie.
