When Hunter witnesses his daughter being killed by a car full of drunk teenagers in 2000 he immediately disappears. Fast-forward to present day, we see a group of teens heading out to party and camp in Braiden Woods. There is a myth that has Hunter living in the woods waiting for unsuspecting campers, most don't believe the stories. But this group of teens are going to find out quickly that the myth is real and deadly.

"Nobody Gets Out Alive" left me with mixed feelings. As far as slasher movies go this is about as close to the classics from the 70's and 80's as you are going to see but the film lacks a bit in a few other areas. Let me start with the good stuff, the film takes a bit of time to get started but once the killing begins it is relentless and brutal, if you have a hard time watching this type of horror film I suggest you take a miss on this one because as far as horror goes the film hits hard.

And now onto the not so good, I thought the story could of of been written a bit better, I know many out there will say that they didn't watch it for a story but I felt it was too straight forward and the few twists it did have I seen coming a mile away not to mention there were a few things happening that just didn't make much sense.

So what is the bottom line here? Well the film has been well received so my pointing out it's flaws might sound a bit crazy but I felt it was only fair to give both sides. Now don't get me wrong I think this is a very good throwback to the old school slasher genre and the horror in the film is scary and suspenseful. I just think that it could of been something special, a real gem if the story was a bit better. Production wise the film looks great for an Indie and the effects are amazing as well. As far as the acting goes I thought everyone gave realistic and believable performances and last but not least Director, Jason Christopher did a great job at creating the suspense and scares and he did a fantastic job at keeping the film moving at a nice pace.

So if you like a good slasher film then I highly recommend "Nobody Gets Out Alive," it is definitely a film horror fans are going to love. Available on DVD, it comes with Special Features that include:
