Young Sam (Trin Miller) has inherited quite a vast stretch of land (with a house on it) from the family she never knew she had. You know, Sam was adopted at a very early age and has no memories from her life before adoption, and has no clue who her parents were.

To check out her land, Sam invites three of her best friends for the ride, Mark (Brandon Anthony), Caitlin (Andi Norris) and Roman (Josh Truax) - not a good combination to begin with because Mark is her ex (it was only a brief affair though) who hasn't totally gotten over her but has set his eyes on Caitlin all the same, which in turn ticks off Roman, Caitlin's best buddy who has always hoped for their friendship develop into a relationship - and yet Caitlin leans towards Mark ...

So yeah, Mark and Roman are constantly fighting over who's the alpha male - and then enter Eric (D'Angelo Midili), the place's young, soft-spoken caretaker, who clearly seems to be interested in Sam, and claims they were childhood friends. Sam shows interest in Eric as well, maybe only to find out about her own past - and thus Mark and Roman don't like this new player one bit.

From here on, it only goes downhill, as Sam soon seems to witness scenes of her past, scenes of violence between her parents, even her father murdering her mother (Sam didn't know that beforehands), but for some reason, her parents resemble Mark and Caitlin to the t, so before long, Sam has difficulties telling apart reality and flashbacks. On top of that, Eric seems to be more than the soft-spoken caretaker he appears to be, something more sinister, and he seems to be determined to not let Sam go, ever - and he's pretty good with a knife ...

 

Sader Ridge is a welcome change to the endless stream of slashers (a genre it at best vaguely resembles) based on similar concepts: Basically, the film doesn't go for the jugular right away but takes its time to build up its plot (and the suspense with it) via clever storytelling, interesting characters/character constellations, and a general atmosphere of unease that has one feel something's wrong here before the first murder actually happens (which is quite late in the movie to be exact).  Plus, the plot manages to twist and turn in quite a few different directions without losing its story in the process that it manages to actually come up with a rather unexpected ending.

Really good genre entertainment - recommended!
