This film is all about ‘A teenager’s weekend at a lake house with her father takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts wreaks havoc on their lives“.
Spunky and rebellious, Becky (Lulu Wilson) is brought to a weekend getaway at a lake house by her father Jeff (Joel McHale) in an effort to try to reconnect. The trip immediately takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts on the run, led by the merciless Dominick (Kevin James), suddenly invade the lake house.
Carnage, dished out in ample doses, tends to be the highlight of an otherwise passable B-grade exercise in tension, torture and human endurance.
Really, it’s mostly just a nasty genre movie with some gruesome scenes of violence. But it’s served well by a script that doesn’t merely embrace the gimmick of a pubescent girl fighting bad guys.
The far-fetched concept generates some mild tension for a while, but quickly turns repetitive as the primary focus turns to creatively choreographed death sequences and gratuitous gore.
