British Actress Terri Dwyer (From 1997 Hollyoaks) stars as Sue Sharp who along with her Daughter Sheila (Brendee Green - Rookie Blue) and her sons are terrorized in their cabin by a gang of masked strangers. a night of horrific events ends in the family dead and one of the children missing but this film vows to fill in the events of the night in question.
Now I really liked The Strangers, I really like Them but Cabin 28 suffers from the low budget and the awful acting. Terri Dwyer's accent jumps between Texan and British so much it is frustrating, Brendee's sweet southern belle act feels fake and the first masked guy at the front door sounds like he is auditioning to be the next foghorn leghorn. This is a shame, as this story deserves a better budget and more care taking with it.
The saving grace is that the masked assailants are extremely creepy and make the film a little more watchable, especially when more and more people begin to enter the fray, but this isn't enough to save this film.
If you are a fan of the low budget horror we seem to be getting thrown at us on a weekly basis then you will like this offering, but in my opinion there are more interesting and better acted home invasion films out there, and as the story behind these terrible real life events have never been explained this film place fast and loose with the events.
Worth a shot when you are up late and it is on the horror channel but don't bother with buying it.
