Preservation (2014)

I'm a little reluctant to recommend this one, because it's honestly pretty generic. There's really not an original moment in the entire movie.

... but, I still found it to be quite effective.

The plot is pretty much the same old same old. Three people head into the woods for a camping trip, but then find themselves being hunted for sport. Been there, done that. Eden Lake, A Lonely Place To Die, King Of The Hill, the list goes on and on and on.

That said, I will say the movie managed to generate some decent suspense and cat-and-mouse thrills. It kept me engaged from beginning to end. It was definitely no Eden Lake, but if you enjoyed that film, you might find a lot to like here. Just a fun and fairly effective little survival thriller.

If you haven't seen Eden Lake... go see that instead. But if you have, and are looking for a fun diversion along the same lines, give Preservation a try.

You can currently stream it for free on NetFlix, if you have access.
Otherwise, it's available on DVD.

If this was a Sasquatch flick I'd be all over it for sure. Where as this Deliverance crap really runs my patience. I'll give it a view on netflix and get back to you on my thoughts.

Totally agree. We need more good Sasquatch movies that are good. I can't really think of any good ones off the top of my head.

If you can only fit in one movie a week, I'd be pissed if I chose this. It's not bad and has it's moments, kind of like a 5.75 rating.
