Overview:
The first horror movie from Irish producer/director Paddy Breathnach (Blow Dry, I Went Down) adds some smart twists to the teen slasher movie formula. Five American students holiday in rural Ireland where their friend Jake (Jack Huston, grandson of director John) assures them that the magic mushrooms are the most powerful going. Tara (Lindsey Haun) ingests a particularly potent fungus just as her friends start getting brutally slain - seemingly by shadowy urban legend the Black Brother. Can she separate stark reality from psychedelic fantasy in order to survive? Breathnach uses some Asian horror-influenced trickery, and it's all beautifully photographed in high acid style, which allows for a few unusual scares. The performances are accomplished - particularly Huston, and Sean McGinley and Don Wycherley as a pair of backwoodsmen - and this gives the film a credibility beyond its genre, although the final revelation rather undercuts what has gone before.
