Desolation A Teenage Boy Are Terrorized By A Menacing Stranger While Hiking Through The Wilderness In Sam Patton Horror Movie (2019)

Horror movie are often rightly criticized for their lack of character development and overreliance on cheap jump scares. Sam patton debut feature desloation avoids such potential stumbing blocks with nuanced characterizations well crafed dialogue and a slow burn non exploitative approach. Unfortunately this tale about three people stalked by a meanacing psycho in the widernes lacks one essential component suspense. Its running time is a mere 78 minutes but the pic feels like it takes much longer getting to nowhere particularly interesting.

The story concerns abby jaimi paige her best friend jen alyshia oschse and abbys 13 year old son sam toby nichols who are hiking and camping together in the woods with a solemn purpose. Abbys husband has recently passed away and they are setting out to scatter his ashes in the mountains that he loved so much.

The Pilgrimage goes as well as could be expected and the two women have a warmly emotional humor tinged late night chat fueled by alcohol and a joint. But things take a disquieting turn whe sam sports a bearded stranger wearing a hoodie and sungleasses and using a walking stick staring at them ominously from a distance. He looks like a wizard sam observes of the strange looking figure. Late in the evening the women discover a backpack near their campsite only to find it missing the next morning. Not long thereafter jen goes missing as well. What started out as a healing experience for abby and her son soon turns into a desperate fight for survival.

Matt anderson and michael larson kangas screenplay earns points for its believable depiction of human interactions no small achievement for a horror movie. Director patton a veteran of the blumhouse production company knows how to work with what is obviously a tiny budget and the performances by the two lead actresses are warmly engaging. But the movie comes up short with what should be its most arresting element the cat and mouse game and subsequent confrontations between the stranger and his would be victims. It doesnt help that the violent sequences are staged in less than convincing fasion or that the villian doesnt look particularly menacing but rather like an actor auditiioning to play the unabomber.
