General information

Rated 3 out of 5

“Just Before Dawn” is a 1981 horror film directed by Jeff Lieberman. The movie follows a group of young adults who venture into a remote forest to explore some land they have inherited, only to find themselves being hunted by a mysterious killer.

The film features some beautiful cinematography of the wilderness and creates a sense of isolation and danger that keeps the viewer on edge. The tension is built slowly but surely, and the horror elements are effective without being too over-the-top.

The characters are well-written and believable, and the actors all give strong performances. There’s a good mix of personalities among the group, which helps to keep things interesting as the story progresses.

One of the most impressive aspects of “Just Before Dawn” is the way it subverts some of the typical horror movie tropes. For example, the “final girl” character isn’t necessarily the one you might expect, and some of the characters who seem like they might be the hero end up meeting a grisly fate.

Overall, “Just Before Dawn” is a solid horror film that will satisfy fans of the genre. It’s not the most innovative or groundbreaking movie out there, but it’s well-made, suspenseful, and delivers plenty of scares. If you’re in the mood for a classic slasher flick with a few twists and turns, give this one a watch.
