There's been a major revival of lost-in-the-woods horror flicks in recent years, but this British effort lops the head off most of its vacant Hollywood counterparts.

Its sly set-up has an arms manufacturer's sales team arriving in a Hungarian forest for a team-building weekend. They think they're going to be paintballing all day before having a relaxing evening in a luxury lodge, but it turns out that the lodge is far from luxurious, and there are people in the trees armed with a lot worse than paintball guns. Gore fans should be sated, while the rest of us can enjoy the gallows humour - or, to be precise, the beartrap humour.

"Shit, I've left Gordon's foot on the coach," is the key line.
