Thoughts on Edge of Isolation

Edge of Isolation is a horror thriller. One that will dive into the idea that people in remote locations have twisted nature. We see the couple who become trapped in a society that they can’t survive in. facing off against a loyal family that will do anything for family. Putting us into this environment, we see the survival battle. Using similar ideas that we saw in Wrong Turn. We get to see how becoming outnumbered will leave the couple needing to be smart. Going against what they know from the city life they have been living for years. It doesn’t seem to offer much new to the style of horror.
