A group of young travellers stumble upon an isolated rural house and proceed to be hunted down in this remake of Tobe Hooper's classic 1974 slasher.

All the bad-rehash mojo from Friday the 13th to The Blair Witch Project has infected Scott Kosar's script.

A contemptible film: Vile, ugly and brutal.

The remake moves faster and sounds louder, but comes off as callous rather than creepy.
