Michael comes to visit his friend, Chris, who is holed up in a dilapidated shack in the middle of nowhere, his life gone the way of the dogs thanks to his crippling meth addiction. In an effort to get him clean, Michael takes him prisoner, only to discover that there are other forces at work in the neighbourhood even more threatening. From tweakin’ dealers to angry reservation owners to freaky cult members, all is not what it seems. For the most part this is a successful attempt to approach horror from a different angle, creating suspense and menace in the simplest, crudest ways possible. The performances are authentic and naturalistic, and the direction effective and unobtrusive.
