Storyline

The college friends Paul, Karen, Bert, Marcy and Jeff rent an isolated cabin in the woods to spend a week together. When they arrive, a man contaminated with a weird disease asks for help to them, but they get in panic and burn the man, who falls in the water reservoir and dies. The whole group, except Karen, makes a pact of drinking only beer along the week without knowing where the dead body is. When Karen drinks tap water and gets the disease, the group begins their journey to hell. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

Through the course of the movie it is established that the door to the immediate left of the bathroom is Marcy and Jeff's bedroom. During the sex scene between Marcy and Paul this bedroom is well lit, but in a wide shot of Paul entering the bathroom immediately afterwards, we see that the room is in darkness. See more »

Ugly Douche-a-thon
10 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is Eli Roth's coming out party. Five college friends rent a cabin in the woods after finishing the finals. They suffer horrific flesh-eating disease, crazy locals, and each other. Other than Rider Strong, there aren't any compelling actors here. The style is lacking. The story is grindingly boring, unfunny and unscary. Bert is such an annoying jerk that his antics infect the rest of the group. Quite frankly, I couldn't care whether any of them survive. There are too many douchie guys in this movie.

The best and only good thing here is the gore. That part is good considering it's a low budget first time effort. Eli is able to copy that part for this 'The Evil Dead' tribute. However I can't really take the douche-a-thon. As a movie, I have to sell the characters. Eli does show flashes of capable filmmaking.
