Has Roadside even seen disc release yet? If not, it deserves to be dumped on shelves and in Redboxes around the US immediately. This tale of a psychopathic sniper hiding in the woods, a stranded couple trapped at his mercy, is tense. The onscreen performances also feel quite organic. For a picture that was essentially shot in one single, small location, the flick flies right along, and the mystery builds as we approach a simplistically unnerving conclusion. A high quality piece from Eric England.
Sick Boy proved that babysitter movies can be damn frightening without a masked stalker prowling about the premises (Michael Myers called in sick for this specific occasion). It doesn’t take a knife-wielding menace to invoke fear. Sometimes it just takes a little boy. A sick, sick little boy. Great buildup to a wonderful finale that looks and feels surprisingly realistic. Aside from that, the anonymity of the entire picture is just about genius.
