Star Rating: 4
While vacationing at their summer home, Emma and John Collingwood (Monica Potter and Tony Goldwyn) show kindness to a group of strangers, unaware that the same men just assaulted their daughter (Sara Paxton). Once they learn the truth, they set out on a no-holds-bared plan for revenge that can only end in bloodshed. Dennis Iliadis directs this updated remake of Wes Craven’s 1972 horror classic by the same name.
Rated R, 1hrs. 50min., 2009
The original from 1972 was one of Wes Craven’s first movies and for the time it was a shocker. I like that Wes tries to go as far on the edge as possible. What if you met up with ruthless individuals who had nothing to lose? This version is very well done and is a great tribute to the original. The characters are believable and the production is top notch. Great date movie!
