"Lower-budget production is the only flaw that has me grade this film down to a B+. Starts out w/ many horror cliches: Sorority girls murdered in the 1980's; but no trace ever found. Today, city kids drive up to remote cabin in Northern Arizona forest for good time. This is the same area where the sorority disappeared. There are romantic and sexual tension in the air. They start partying, get drunk, and start to freak each other out w/scary stories. What's next is beyond unpredictable and is why this film stands out above your typical trash. There's actually an elaborate plot behind the whole trip up to the cabin. (I won't spoil it for you.) No this is not a grade A film like Alien, The Grudge, Saw, The Exorcist or something. But it's not a C grade or worse film either."
If only they had listened.......

"I watched this on the Zone Horror channel on a night where films were being played after votes from viewers. Having seen the film, I can see why this was a choice for a prime time viewing slot from the viewers...
The plot sees nine students go away on a weekend to a lonely cabin far in the woods , in northern Arizona. On the way they are warned that a group of girls went missing in the 1980s in a nearby location. Undeterred, they make their way to their weekend retreat. To their horror they later find out that their cabin was none other than the very place that the previous group went missing. Worse, they soon realise that the same predators await them in the forests outside, and that those predators are an ancient race of carnivorous ghouls - The Lonely Ones who have an appetite for human flesh.... A terrifying fight for survival then ensues as the group desperately try to make it through the night.
Sure the film is low budget and the SFX while acceptable could have been better. It is nonetheless an absorbing film that really takes off once the group start their fight for survival. On an initial look, the story and setting are hardly original. However, the cast acquit themselves well and manage to keep their characters above being the usual plastic fodder for the bad guys. There are some good twists in the plot and the film remains quite suspenseful. It is gory but does not become gratuitous, despite the ever increasing body count.
Director David Michael Quiroz has made an enthralling and enjoyable horror film here, and is definitely a name to watch out for in the future on the strength of this showing. This is a film that is gaining a solid standing within the Horror Genre from word of mouth and deservedly so.
