Five teenagers head off to a lakeside cabin for a wild weekend only to have the festivities cut short by the attentions of a homeless wanderer with a highly contagious flesh-eating disease. With gaping plot holes and characters that take the illogical behaviour of horror flick victims to a whole new level this quirky little film still manages to carry you along and give you a few decent laughs in the process. This is due to the loyal adherence to the staples of the horror genre and a deliberate re-tracing of earlier classics’ footsteps. Added to that, there is some modest young talent who share a more than effective chemistry and at least one cast member in the form of James DeBello who shows no problem in carrying the bulk of the film’s humour remit on his shoulders. That said, there are some nice cameos littered here and there (including one by the director himself) that offer ample support in that regard.
