Having not seen the original to this remake, I can't remark on it's merits in that direction. However on it's own, it falls quite flat. The protagonists are "classically" horror movie stupid to a quite appalling and intensely frustrating degree and the dialogue wasn't much better. I mean, what bride waits until several days before the wedding to decide on and tell the girl who she wants to be her maid of honor? And at one point, after the you know what hits the fan, one character literally is in the clear and has the chance to call the police, but instead decides to listen to a voicemail. The conceit that they are stranded with no contact to the outside world is certainly not helped by that scene.The acting itself is decent and though the actresses do try valiantly, none of them are able to keep up a reliable American (USA) accent. The gore, the little there is, is decent. Perhaps with a better script (that didn't rely so heavily on the characters being profoundly stupid) this movie could have been a pretty good low budget horror movie, but as is I suggest taking a pass.

A disappointing effortReviewed bybachemarVote: 3/10
Sometimes it can be most useful to analyze something small and seemingly insignificant like, for example, a film's title! My mother tongue isn't English, but I've always been impressed by the number of synonyms that exist in this language for practically every single word. Some of these synonyms are truly cool and powerful words. As an example, I love the word "unhinged". I never heard of that word until I watched the 1982 original film and found out, via the awesome website thesaurus.com that it's a synonym for insane, berserk, manic etc. It's now one of my favorite words, and I also happen to be one of the few people who thinks that the original "Unhinged" is a uniquely grim and massively underrated 80s slasher! That film, with its demented storyline and notable moments of nauseating gore, truly deserved to be named "Unhinged". This 2017 remake shamelessly copies the title, but the atmosphere, the violence, the characters and simply the film in general are not "unhinged". In fact, it's weak and unremarkable horror fodder with a dumb and totally implausible plot, spineless lead characters and a nearly unforgivable shortage of blood, savagery and overall weirdness. Four American girls take an enormous detour through the English countryside to go to the wedding of one of them. That's where the story goes wrong already. A bachelorette-party in the backwoods, seriously? Why would any girl want to drive through a completely unknown region where there's absolutely nothing to see? They are not lost, or at least not at first, but deliberately avoid the main roads. Why, exactly is that? They clearly never listened to any basic traveling safety advise or even watched a horror movie in their lives, because they are surprised when they run into crazy people. How they then handle their problems is, if possible, even more stupid and unbelievable. "Unhinged" features all the irritating clichés and predictable plot twists you can think of. These girls take the dumbest decisions imaginable (like not calling the police when their mobiles still have signal) and do the most idiotic things that even my 5-year-old wouldn't do (like running off into the woods after a banal argument). All this might have been acceptable in the early 80s, but not now. The killings are tame, bloodless and not at all unhinged. The performances are very poor and unconvincing, especially from Michelle Archer as the odd lady and Lorena Andrea & Becca Hirana as the supposed tough chicks. I'm sorry, but there's absolutely nothing to recommend here.
Traveling through the English countryside, a group of friends heading to a wedding get stranded at a remote house in the wilderness with a lone woman who lives in the house and when they start disappearing come to realize something monstrous lives there with her and must escape alive.
This here was quite the decent and problematic remake effort. One of the few more enjoyable elements is the rather intriguing slow-burn style of setup this one takes which follows along the original rather nicely. From the initial abduction point that gives them a fine reason for being stranded as well as a tense sequence on it's own, to their arrival at the abandoned house and the strange customs imposed on them by the owner which starts off as somewhat unnecessary but soon comes to have far more significance with the later revelations given here which is revealed with the stellar scene of them overhearing the conversation out in the backyard with the unseen force wanting them out. That this one ties that in with the fine backstory that takes place in beginning which features rather prominently in the middle where not only is it fully revealed what happened but it plays into the incredibly tense and chilling sequence of her being subjected to a series of intense tortures where he engages in all sorts of brutal measures which are quite fun to see. The other fun part here is the fine stalking at the end from the chase through the woods and the battle in the house to brawl around the outside of the house which has some fun energy to it that is helped off with a rather creepy look to the killer. These here manage to hold this one up over somewhat prominent and rather obvious flaws. The main factor here is the rather bland and banal pacing that really makes for an extremely uneventful first half here. The exploits of the group getting stranded at the countryside inn and finding their accommodations to be quite unappealing aren't that exciting and really makes this one feel so dreary and sluggish that it's hard to be interested. The other problem with the utterly dragging and detrimental pacing that comes up here is that hardly anything happens that resemble horror sequences for large stretches of time, meaning too much is featured with them engaging in those extracurricular activities that don't mean anything for this one to have any kind of momentum or energy at all and rendering it quite a dull time. The other big issue here is the problematic and truly troublesome stalking scenes at the forefront of this one, as the vast majority of it's supposed horror scenes are completely inept, with non-suspenseful scenes in the woods when you don't see anything behind her to just bland moments with the killer interacting with the victims or just being so dark as to make it virtually impossible to tell what actually happened. Combined with the obvious low-budget that renders a lot of the scenes as being cheaply done, these here really hold this one down.
