review by
Mike Haberfelner

Six best friends - Quinn (Seth Gandrud), Kira (Jennifer Scott), Maddox (Vic Rogers), Olivia (Natalie Andrews), Marco (J.C. Marquez Pulita) and India (Jessica Eenhuis) - go on a fishing trip together, but the trip is under no good star from the get-go, when they arrive at a ramshackle bridge leading to their spot, which not only looks less than safe, but also several of the group suffer from terrible hallucinations when arriving there, hallucinations that affect some of them physically. However they make it over the bridge - only to then notice they've forgotten their supplies in the car. But heading back they have to realize the bridge is gone - in fact there is no sign there ever was a bridge. Of course they could have taken a wrong turn, but there's no bridge for miles, and they haven't even walked miles yet. Of course, there cellphones won't work in the middle of nowhere, but they're also showing different times. Eventually, it's getting dark, and our heroes start to experience weird hallucinations, hallucinations that have one thing in common, a weird young woman named Maya (Victoria Paege). Unfortunately these hallucionations prove to be all too real - and quite harmful to our group of campers as well ...

Genre fave Brinke Stevens plays of all things a demonic tea lady threatening Jennifer Scott's character.


A quite unusual piece of genre cinema, one that starts out as a somewhat folk horror inspired piece, eventually veers of into haunted woods territory, to ultimately give a very esoteric spin to things - and I have to admit, towards the third act the film loses itself a bit, abandons some of its narrative stringency for a more episodic mode of storytelling, but the vignettes that make up the finale are all well put-together and shocking enough to make horror fans happy - and of course a very solid cast doesn't hurt one bit either.
