It should have been a simple bachelor party Ben (Gabe Arredondo),
Johnny (Adam Burns), Jeff (Matthew Gilliam), Boyd (Matt Mercer), Kyle
(Nathan Ross Murphy) and Mason (Nathan Ross Murphy) planned to their
friend Eddie (Allen C. Gardner), a weekend away at a lodge in the middle
of nowhere with heavy drinking, a few drugs, and who knows, even a
stripper, even if Eddie forbid his friends to hire one. At first,
everything goes alright even, and even a stripper, Courteney (Najarra
Townsend), shows up, and she even promises sexual favours to one of them.
But when Johnny's in the bedroom with her, he can't perform - so she
steals all of the friends' cellphones, hides them, then stabs herself
dead. And the next morning, when the friends find the body, they realize
they can't call the police, and can't leave the house either because there
are snipers outside, bent to take anyone who goes out or in. Now that's
bad, but what's even worse is that they are locked into the lodge with a
spirit who has the ability to possess each one of them, to essentially
foil all their plans to escape. Things of course go from bad to worse when
two police officers (Kenneth Farmer, Lindsey Roberts) show up, and the
ghost uses the friends to knock them both out. But why is all this
happening, and why is a ghost in league with sharpshooters?
Enter the lodge's owner Oscar (John Spededakos), who back in the day
has had his wife Rhonda (Jamie Broadaway) killed - and she has haunted the
lodge ever since. And he figured he can only get rid of her if she fell in
love with another man - and maybe Eddie and his friends are just the sort
of man she might warm up to. Valid idea, but an idea that created a
situation that's sure to get out of hand ...
A really fun horror comedy that makes the most both out of its limited
locations and its premise, and while it doesn't exactly re-invent the
wheel, it really manages to come up with new ways to make a standard
situation work, and quite amusingly so. And it also helps that the film
doesn't just dumb it down for cheap gags but goes for character
development instead - but that said, most these characters are wickedly
funny. So basically, this is a movie that's almost sure to make you laugh
without insulting your intelligence.
