This film was a 'burn'. A 'burn' is an example of when I take JoBlo word of mouth too seriously and make a conscientious effort to see the film in question (cf: Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon).
It's not a bad film, per se, but it is rated higher than it deserves to be, perhaps as horror has too few gems at the moment.
The villian/not a villain/sorta villain from Tigerland was just fine, if not exactly badass, but the boyfriend was a major loser and very distracting.
Effects were okay, clearly limited by the budget, but The Ruins - as imperfect as that was - told a similar story in a much better way.
Nature is a boring protagonist.
