Should of been a Cable movie. No depth . Also gave me the creeps.
This is akin to a rated R version of the Wrong Turn movie. So predictable that it was one of those I-know-what-is-coming-next movies. Here is the major star deduction from my standpoint. The main character is college educated, ultra healthy based on a few opening scenes, very intelligent, but stupid enough to not get into her vehicle and drive off when two backwoods hillbillies pull over??? But wait ... why did she keep driving into the middle of nowhere when she knew she was lost? Frankly, the only reason I gave it 2 stars was because of the acting (at least on her part and the meth-lab cooker’s part). Both did very good jobs, but the rest of the acting was extremely subpar and basically lame. Worth a .99 cent rental ... not really. Worth watching for free ... only if nothing else better is available to view in my humble opinion. Sorry, but this was just not any more exciting or suspenseful than the trailer which pretty much shines as the high points of this movie. I hope this helps. Sincerely
This film is a great take on the "lead character gets stranded" narrative that we often see in thrillers. The most wonderful part about this film is the acting. All of the actors did such a fantastic job it is hard to believe the circumstances in the film are not their real lives. Hermione Corfield is fantastic for this kind of raw-no bells and whistles-realist kind of character. The gruesome scenes were really well executed, and give you that kind of "gross but i can't stop watching feeling". After these scenes, it's hard to not want to find out how this girl gets herself out of this terrible situation. The cinematography captures beautiful images and really gives you a feel for what its like to be in this creepy tiny town. I wish the sherrif's involvement with drug trafficking and desire to "beat the mexican cartel" was delved into more. However, this film has no shortage of raw relationships between characters and a powerful desire for survival from the lead.
.....however, far from great. Several parts are unrealistic such as being injured and being mobile, etc...
Great thriller and fun to watch! The story was engaging and suspenseful. They built the world of the story nicely, as well as the relationships between characters. The lead actor, Hermione Corfield gives a great performance. It’s a fun ride of a movie and will keep you guessing.
this is maybe maybe my second review in many years.. not good.
It saddens me that movies are so dumbed down these days. What was the point of even making this one? The money invested in this production could have fed, clothed, sheltered people in the very same region depicted. The script was un original crap, the acting crap, the direction, crap. The story, crap.
A twist on your standard thriller, this movie reminds me of the FX show Justified - deep characters and complex relationships driving the drama. If you like a little depth with your heart-pounding suspense, Rust Creek is for you!
This was a really enjoyable movie
