2012 Guide Analysis: "Aselton and her husband Mark Duplass are darlings of the indie feature comedy circuit with a growing fan base thanks to their regular roles on FX's "The League". Aselton follows up her first directing effort "The Freebie" by switching genres to this suspense thriller following three childhood friends who go for a weekend getaway on a remote Maine island, only to discover that they are not alone. Their break soon becomes a deadly fight for survival

Set to premiere at Sundance next month, Aselton called it a girl-based thriller with a very real threat that could happen to anyone. Duplass penned the script and rights will be sold in Park City and at Cannes - should the screenings there go well expected distributors to snap this up pretty quickly as the cast and subject matter seem quite marketable."
