A group of technology-dependent teenagers goes to - offline camp. Common hiking in the woods without access to smartphones will not end, however, as planned by the organizers.

So I started watching this based on the name of the movie (the same reason I watched Cadaver - and I didn't realize that either of them were non-English films until I started watching) and had no idea of what it was about.

When I learned it starts at a camp for internet addicted teens I thought it was a great concept, remove the technology that causes basically every movie, horror or otherwise, to break down in the 21st century. Then I started thinking more and realized that I almost never hear about internet addiction anymore. Have we just ceded that idea and grown to accept our total reliance on our phones?

This movie is pretty much an homage to slashers of the 80s. There is one shot that's pretty clearly inspired by another slasher homage, Hachet. The plot is basically bits of various slashers put into a blender and frapped. It's an entertaining film if you have a strong stomach and a appreciation fo the genre.
