Great cinematography (The POV style was used perfectly) some nice brutal kills, awesome 80's style synth score, and Woods (Who I originally thought was the worst possible choice for the role) ended up winning me over. Great job, Frodo.

IMO, this is easily the best of the modern remakes. It shits all over Evil Dead, Dawn Of The Dead and The Hills Have Eyes. WHY DIDN'T THIS GET A WIDE RELEASE???!!!

This ^^^^^
The score was creepy as shit
The POV style was a fresh concept (to me anyways)
The acting was great (very apprehensive about Elijah Wood to me he is still the young kid in The Good Son)
The scalping's were very real as well as the rest of the gore.

This was very disturbing and dark. This is one of those rare examples where the remake surpass the original.
