A 666-Character Review Of ‘Consumption’

Two young couples vacation in the snowy Utah woods for some relaxation. One of them carries a secret that invites evil into their retreat. The group of friends is collectively insufferable right at the outset of the film. The sound design is jarring throughout. It distracts from the film and covers some of the dialog rather than enhancing the atmosphere. The villains prove to be much more compelling and well acted though some performances were shorter than I would have liked. The films third act is its best. It has some dark humor, originality, and moments of creepiness that were absent from the first two. Consumption has good ideas not always executed well.
