Jakob and Veith are two friends returning from the Napoleonic war. Vieth along with his Prussian friend (Jacob)heads for his native village, somewhere up in the Austrian mountains, to claim the cottage that belonged to his grandfather of which he is the sole inheritor. In the village and the woods surrounding it they encounter a terrible unknown force unheard of before.
Well the idea was not so lame as the movie making made it. Cheesy effects and low budget scenario is one thing but immature acting and waste of splendid scenery that could have been so vividly utilized had the director put a bit of more skill gets really painful when watching this movie. The acting isn't solid as is expected of most of the low budgets but there is a constant feeling throughout that a better everything could have been achieved.
The only thing engaging aside from the story thats terribly wasted to the point that it loses its efficacy is the scenic locations, the starting few minutes the area around the cottage the vibrant green over the hills is the only relief that one gets out of it.
My guess is if you have a heart for low budgets flimsy acting and have nothing else to watch then go for it, it might be successful in keeping you engaged for a while but don't expect any artistic brilliance or convincing effects coz the moment you shift to that mood you are gonna lose it.
