MicroReview: Enclosure (2016)



An adventurous woman with a secret from her husband insists the couple go camping to reconnect. Something in the woods wipes out a group of hunters nearby, preventing the couple from leaving their tent. Secrets and supernatural stories come to light, and they must determine if the real threat is inside or outside their enclosure.

Review

Director Patrick Rea (Strange Events) packs an interesting punch with Enclosure (also known as Arbor Demon). A relatively simple set up - a young couple go camping, only to be brought face to face with rednecks fighting supernatural beings - which is largely played out by the young couple and Jake Busey (The Predator) hanging out in a tent. At first it seemed that the film was going all Dog Soldiers, but rather adds in some twists.

Busey is good, as he always is, and the young couple are played by Fiona Dourif (Curse of Chucky) and Kevin Ryan (1 Nighter) with Ryan standout for the wrong reasons. Sadly Both Busey and Dourif have a good screen presence and a massive horror back catalogue, and Ryan can't quite keep up.

The plot, all be it simple, sets up a decent enough horror film. It's claustrophobic, the makeup effects are solid, and the film has enough twists that you won't guess the entire movie from the start. Some of it is a little obvious, but it's not a bad effort. There's some decent kills, enough gore, and it's well made.

No, it's not must see, but it is a good effort, and refreshingly different for a creature feature.
