The Story Line

The crowd of four friends, Dom, Hutch, Luke, and Phil embarks on a hiking journey in the National Park of Sarek, in the Northern Sweden to give honor to their friend Rob since he was murdered six months ago in the a robbery in one convenience store. After Dom tumbles and injured his knee, Hutch consulted the map of the group and settles in the alternate way into the woods which will take half of their time. The group started to encounter mysterious phenomena, with a brokenhearted deer and runes stamped on trees. As evening approaches, they come upon the rundown cabin and then stayed there for that evening. The cabin is almost empty, save an odd timber effigy in an attic shaped just like the human torso, with the antlers for hands. In the evening, everyone is plagued by terrible, and Luke woke up with the odd set of stab wounds over his chest, and then Phil is obliged to pray to effigy in the cabin. They go on with their travels into the woods in attempting to locate their way out.

Hiking a ridge, Luke saw evidences of an odd creature that can be stalking them. Although attempting to argue this with the crowd, an argument in between Dom and he rises where the latter revealed he partly blame Luke for the death of Rob, because of his actions while on robbery. Later that evening, Hutch was taken by a monster, while the group gave chase. They get lost and were unable to locate the supplies and the tents, settling on trying to go on without them. While on the way, the group locates Hutch impaled elevated in the tree, gutted like a deer they saw earlier. Recovering Hutch’s body for a compass and a knife, they covered him and press with one more day. Luke walked ahead and spotted the village and an edge of a forest, but the moment he returned, Phil was taken by a creature and was killed. Luke keeps back with Dom, influencing him to run together with him. They discovered the dead body of Phil, impaled on the tree, and the path of torches heading to the little village. Seeking protection, they stumble to the cabin but were knocked down unconscious by unseen dwellers.

The Writers Viewpoint

The movie is just awesome. It is horrifying with a dark storyline and credible characters. These days, this movie is already considered a good horror and for some that watch it, considered it a masterpiece with amazing nature style. I urge to say, the movie is one of the top monster movies to watch for. It is included in the top ten horror movies and the direction is great too.

Although, the finale could have been better, but it was thrilling and spooky, and psychologically arousing and the movie content is impressive when you are watching it now in some streaming video sites.
