I found that the liberal use of it in the dialogue just made me dislike and be kind of annoyed by the characters, which in turn didn't help in making me feel frightened for them. It just feels like cheap writing and if I personally knew anyone who consistently talked like that, I'd avoid them most of the time.
I thought the cursing was appropriate given they were collage kids. It also wasn't scripted, the directors just told them where to be each day and look surprised when you discover something. It was them feeding them less and less each day and having them feeling dirty and freaked out is what brought on all the cursing.
