Plot: Ray Wise (Jeepers Creepers 2, Twin Peaks), Lin Shaye (There's Something About Mary, Stuck On You), Alexandra Holden (TV's Ally McBeal) and Amber Smith (American Beauty) star in this horror from Jean Baptiste-Andrea and Fabrice Canepa.
Frank is grudgingly driving his family to spend Christmas with his in-laws. His wife Laura (Lin Shaye) tries to force some cheer into the dreary journey, battling against her husband's moaning and son Richard's teenage jibes. Meanwhile, their daughter Marion (Alexandra Holden) and her boyfriend Brad do their best to rise above the tension.
Frank decides to take a deserted short-cut through the woods - it turns out to be the biggest mistake of his life. Before too long, a mysterious woman in white (Amber Smith) steps out of the woods and Frank stops the car to help her. A second decision he will come to regret.
As the survivors succumb to panic and insanity, deeply buried family secrets burst to the surface and the journey turns into a living

...what really makes this film good is how they can make you laugh one moment and then all of a sudden get your panties in a bunch. There are things appearing in the pitch black, babies crying, and best of all is a little trick they play on you...

A decent watch. Has originality and had potential of being a really good flick, but falls apart once we realize there's not much as far as horror goes. Worth a check if you're looking for something different, but steer clear if you're lookin' for somethin 6/10

...On the whole, this bouncy journey was an entertaining, inventive, moody, frightening and funny watch with great actors to boot. Sure, if you know your horror, you’ll guess the ending at frame 2 and teeny-bop Richard’s presence was easily the most annoying thing since Jennifer Lopez started pretending she was black, but that didn’t stop the flick from being a blast. and hit this DEAD END!...

Is this a slasher movie? A supernatural affair? Is the whole thing a dream? Whatever you decide, come the weird - and surprisingly touching - conclusion, it's certainly one of the better fright flicks in a while.
