Wow, a 1:1 Favorite-Dislike ratio. That's crazy. This truly is a love-it-or-hate-it movie. I think it is fantastic. It's great how the mythology is explored at the beginning of the film to plant the seeds in your head as to what could be happening in these woods later on. But it's really inspiring to watch one of the greatest success stories in the history of cinema. Cost nothing to make, made a ton.
I also have to say that this movie should be the benchmark for convincing acting in a horror movie. I was so utterly convinced that these people were going through an incredibly terrifying experience by the actors' portrayals of mental degradation and anxiety. I think acting is at its best when you can be convinced that these are real people, and this was done very well.
But seriously, people…just because this film was made cheap doesn't mean it was lazily made. Quite the contrary. I think the people that dislike it either don't have the imagination to fill in the blanks of what's going on or just can't tolerate ambiguity.
I liked this one a lot. The backlash has been undeserved.
A horror film for those not lacking in imagination.
Don't watch this if you expect eye-candy, gore, knives, blood, flying chairs, zombies, sound bangs and all the other stereotypical clichés that make most cheap horrors suck.
