Review

Formulaic and unfresh horror from New Zealand has engaging leads and a fairly rewarding solution, but hits too many familiar notes on its way there. The premise isn't very good, to be honest, and the environment and characters it portrays seem too secluded to give the film a naturally thrilling effect. At it worst, The Locals seems like something coming from Stephen King's paper-bin, which rarely is a good testament.
