Cub (2014) Review:

The characters are probably the best things about this Belgian horror movie, both the good and the bad ones. The movie features kid scouts as the good guys which are a change from the usual teens partying in the woods and a crazy maniac and his twisted son as villains, both very interesting characters. The realization is pretty solid too, with some good choice of filming locations, and many cool traps laid around by the killers. All this makes the first half of the movie very exciting and even suspenseful – but then comes the major problem of the movie: it does not deliver anything in the second half. The scenario does not make any sense and, most importantly, nothing is explained about the bad guys… Even though the final arguably contains some interesting psychological elements, the complete absence of a proper story turned me off completely and overshadowed all the good things that the movie delivered in the first part.
