I am surprised to admit that I, for the most part, highly enjoyed this film. In short, a group of college kids decide to investigate rumors of a strange community within a disconnected (from the real world) farm community, only to find the rumors are very true. While the essential premise has been repeated at nauseam in many other movies, this one was executed pretty well, well enough to certainly justify a rental. The scenes leading up to the actual on-screen action (necessitated by the horror elements) do a great job of building tension and setting an ominous mood. The actual action-horror scenes are very good too; they slowly introduce and reveal the monster characters with a strong visual impact and do not overdo it. Far too many mutant/monster movies grossly overdo the monster to the point of annoying absurdity, not so here. My primary complaint is the awful Indian guy. The cast is primarily 4 college kids, 3 of which mesh well together and have generally good on-screen chemistry. Not so for the Indian kid. His acting skills are on par with that of a rock, and he certainly breathes the same level of life into his character, a completely boring, empty, flat guy whose jokes and pitiful attempts at acting like a cool american kid are shamelessly artificial. That notwithstanding, the movie overcomes this awful casting decision and provides a highly enjoyable movie that does not overdo the gore.
