"The Corridor."
"The Corridor."

More and more films premiere on Video on Demand -- if they don't simply bypass a theatrical release altogether. Because VOD reviews are often scarce and hard to find, Criticwire created VODetails, a recurring column to help you figure out whether a new VOD release is worth your hard-earned dollar.  This time we're looking at "The Corridor," a horror flick about five friends who head out to a remote cabin in the woods and discover a strange, supernatural tunnel.  Man, It's a big spring for cabin in the woods movies.  Real estate prices for remote, woodland properties at the ends of desolate, unpaved roads must be skyrocketing right now thanks to all this media exposure.  Hope you got into the market for folksy yet terrifying vacation spots early.

Director: Evan Kelly

Cast: Stephen Chambers, James Gilbert, David Patrick Flemming

Official Synopsis: "They’ve been the best of buddies for more than a decade, but now they’re changing -- getting married, getting promoted, going bald, going insane. During a male-bonding weekend, they will discover a spectral corridor through the woods – an impossible hallway where none should be. It will lead these five men into fear, into betrayal, and into the biggest change of them all: by weekend’s finish... they’ll be dead." [Blogger's Note: That sure sounds like one helluva spoiler to me, but I took it straight from "The Corridor"'s official site so who knows...]

Reviews:

Ryland Aldrich, Twitch:

"A taut thriller that wraps the audience in a blanket of paranoia without falling victim to the cliches that plague so many cabin-in-the-woods horrors."

Scott Weinberg, FEARnet:

"'The Corridor' may borrow themes and ideas from a handful of disparate sources, but in the end it all comes together with care and craftsmanship, and the result is one of the coolest Canadian chillers in years."

James McCormick, The Criterion Cast:

"This is definitely a horror film that should be watched with the lights low, with a few friends that you would hopefully go away to a cabin in the woods and not kill."

Travis Keune, We Are Movie Geeks:

"Seamlessly blends human drama with science fiction, psychological and visceral horror, and even a touch of metaphysical philosophy for one of the more mesmerizing but accessibly cerebral films I’ve seen in years."

Cole Abaius, Film School Rejects:

"The story then goes off the deep end, but only slightly off the rails."

"The Corridor" is now available on VOD and playing in select theaters.
