ok so i’m going to mostly agree with boon and actually disagree with mollo (but, funny enough… both gave this 4/5 :) )

this is a great edit. the excised choices really boost the psychological horror here. VERY uncomfortable. i enjoyed the heavily cut introduction and conclusion and the way that the *climax* is handled leaves your imagination to fill in the gaps – which is quite disturbing.

some nitpicking… i think that removing the boys entirely would work better and jump straight to our unlucky couple at the beginning. also, as boon said, the “psychos playing with their prey” got a wee bit old and this could have been shortened for greater impact. also, the “This is a REAL story” revelation could add an even bigger mindf*ck at the end.

regardless, this was thoroughly “enjoyable” (that seems wrong) and felt like a much improved edit.
