After a young American backpacker goes missing in Europe, a group of journalists link his disappearance to a remote village in Poland. They travel there hoping to get the story, but as they unravel the secrets behind this mysterious village, they are suddenly pursued by hostile locals. Unable to escape, they soon become the next victims of ritualistic human sacrifice.

Here’s another new addition to the Netflix available movies. Never heard about it before but since I’m doing a review everyday, I thought hey why not. The beginning scene looks like it’s a flashback or a dream of the Middle Ages. Hopefully it was a dream because they didn't look from that time at all. I also have to add forgetting how loud your surround sound is when creepy things happen isn't a good thing when horror isn't your favourite genre of movie. I'm starting to think that the main cast went to the village in the beginning and that it's just a run down old school place of living. The priests at the village church have the most badass satanic robes I have ever seen, well, second to the band Ghost's lead member, Papa Emeritus. I'd say the fun of the movie doesn't start until twenty-five minutes in, the fog at this point really gives a good feel and makes anything that isn't white more noticeable which gives off a cool effect. The evil goblin Orc statue was awesome looking. I definitely wouldn't want be near it especially since it keeps looking at you wherever you move. I take it back thirty-six minutes in feels more like where the fun starts, not much happened in the fog. Even then, this movie just seems like a cult of satanic hillbillies. They dress satanic but their crosses are right side up so I'm not sure what they are. I wish there was subtitles for what they were saying but I guess the mystery of it made it that more interesting to see what happens next. The creepy faces that occur once in a while are really creepy looking. I'm not going to give anything away but the mask scene is brutal. After understanding why they wanted to kill the woman and not Marcus, as much, this movie made more sense. The ending of the movie is pretty brutal and I like that let the guy go, seeming how he didn't want to be there in the first place. If you like horror movies then this should be a movie to watch, also its Canadian made. It takes a while for the movie to pick up but even I thought it was alright.
