The director of Saw II, III, and IV presents a hair-raising psychological horror in the tradition of THE SHINING. Richard Vineyard (Stephen Moyer of TV's TRUE BLOOD) leads his family on a weekend getaway to the Wharton State Pine Barrens - home of the legendary Jersey Devil. The trip takes a dark turn when various forest animals wind up mysteriously mutilated and a teenage boy disappears from the campgrounds. As Richard falls violently ill and delusional, he starts to believe there is something stalking them - something with yellow eyes, pointed horns, and the wings of a bat. The family is soon fighting for their lives as the horrifying truth reveals itself in a shocking conclusion. Also starring Mia Kirschner (TV's VAMPIRE DIARIES) and Erik Knudsen (SAW II, SCREAM 4).

The story is predictable and messy and worst of all, it’s not scary.

it was okay - typical what you would expect for a thriller about a family going on vacation in the woods

Mildly entertaining, but don't expect any chills or scares. The most interesting parts deal with the history of the Jersey Devil, but otherwise this is a Syfy channel quality film.

Your comments did ruin it for the rest of us. It was a really good movie on a psycological level. I did not like the demonic monster they came up with but If they created a scarier and cooler demon it would have been better.
