Beth is pregnant and the two are hoping to enjoy their last vacation before their baby is born. Once there, they notice that while there are plenty of children present, the adults all seem to be missing.

    Makinov's film expertly crafts a sense of dawning madness that hinges on its villains' unspoken fury at their elders.

    Even by the standards of the genre, the characters behave with astonishing stupidity, while Makinov tries repeatedly to mine suspense from slowly creeping up on his actors with the camera.
