Five college studentsDana (Kristen Connolly), Curt (Chris Hemsworth), Jules (Anna Hutchison), Marty (Fran Kranz) and Holden (Jesse Williams)go for a vacation at a remote cabin in the woods. Unknowingly, they are watched by two sophisticated technicians: Richard Sitterson (Richard Jenkins) and Steve Hadley (Bradley Whitford).
By using environmental controls and releasing mood-altering drugs into the air, the technicians are able to manipulate the environment the students are in. The manipulation reduces the students' intelligence and enhances their libido and lack of caution. Eventually, one by one, the students are manipulated into disobeying instructions so they can be "punished." p>
I was looking forward to this film, ever since I saw the first trailer, but it was nothing like I expected. Though I did enjoy the film, it wasn't as amazing as the trailer made it out to be. All the best parts were in the trailer itself. I did enjoy when the characters bong turned into a cup, and after all that complaining from the guy about the merman, he gets killed by it....but it just didn't have enough of a scare factor for me. Finally scary movies she be unpredictable - this was not. It was very clever, but in my eyes the movie fell short.
what an absolute farce of a movie. it's like a watching a worse version of the truman show, terrible acting, terrible plot, terrible idea! how is this movie is getting mre than 1 star is beyond me!
I guess this is one of those movies you either love or you hate. Personally I loved it; it grows on you after a while.
