Brief Summary of Plot from LetterboxdYOU CAN’T RUN FROM WHAT’S INSIDE. In this grisly remake of the 2002 horror hit, five college chums rent an isolated woodland cabin for a party. But their fun quickly ends when the group is exposed to a hideous flesh-eating virus, and survival becomes the name of the game.

My ReviewAfter the first 15 minutes: Like in the 2002 version, the beginning takes place at a gas station with some weird hillbillies. Already in the first few minutes, I could tell that this movie was going to worse than the 2002 version.

Overall impressions: Really stupid — but I guess that is to be expected from a B horror movie. Essentially, this is the exact same script as the first movie — not sure why? Super boring and unoriginal. The deputy is really ridiculous and has super stupid dialogue about partying. I don’t remember if this was also in the first film (probably was). Basically, this was a worse version of the original. There are similar scenes, but redone terribly. If you liked the first movie, I would doubt that you will like this one.
