Remakes are a dangerous thing, and should be handled with care. From the perspective of this review, I think it best to take this film on its own. Jessica Beil shines as the film’s leading lady; taken to every extreme of human fear, she predictably sees her friends taken down one by one. Like 2003’s Wrong Turn, the movie shocks and disgusts the viewer, but at the same time, entertains. It may be clichéd and unoriginal, but it is enjoyable all the same.
