I'm a big fan of the horror genre, but the glut of found footage movies shot with someone's borrowed camera, one dimensional actors, and the use of gore and naked women, usually teens, have made finding a horror movie worth watching to the end a real task. I rented this only because Kevin Durand was the lead. He surprised me with the quality of his acting in "The Strain", and surpassed that with his performance as a troubled, grieving husband, haunted by the death of his child, and determined to protect his remaining son, and the people in his town. The supporting actors were also good, but I had the impression that they may have been working on a lean budget with the lack of extras - the town seems almost deserted throughout the movie. The pace was slow, but still had it''s moments that made me sit up suddenly - it wasn't a film that will have you leaving the light on when you go to bed, but still, a solid performance all around. I didn't give it a 5 star rating because while it built tension throughout the movie it was easy to see where it was going to peak. Also, the special effects ... well, like I said, I think they had a pretty small budget for the film. I was just glad to see solid characters who weren't completely one dimensional, and good acting. I won't make this a spoiler, but the last 4 seconds made me say, "Oh, come on!" - you'll understand when you see it - and if horror is your thing, you really should see it.
