Here be monsters.
Only 10 years old, Lizzy has already been scarred badly by life with an abusive, alcoholic mother.
And that’s before she and mommie dearest end up trapped in the woods with something really big and nasty.
They can’t outrun whatever is burrowed deep in the dark, and it has a bad habit of eating everyone who shows up to take a crack at helping them.
Director Bryan Burtino keeps the suspense crackling, but also gives us more — the hard-earned redemption of a woman not meant to be a mom, but willing to die for the girl she loves.
