Get Gone
is a 2019 American horror film written and directed by Michael Thomas Daniel. The movie stars Lin Shaye, Weston Cage, Robert Miano and Bradley Stryker.

Plot:

A hoax busting group go on a team-building retreat to Whiskey Flats, Oregon. They run into trouble as they cross paths with an invasive drilling company that is warring with a very private family…

Reviews:

“All of the actors are saddled with clunky dialogue, including some particularly cringe-inducing attempts at sexu@l harassment-related comic relief […] The fracking angle hints at a level of social commentary that could have added some valuable subtext to an otherwise formulaic story, but Get Gone isn’t remotely coherent enough to espouse a compelling point of view.” Crooked Marquee

“Performances are as clueless (in character) as they are unenthusiastic, narrative flow hacked to bits, and budgetary constraints only ever a hindrance that Michael Thomas Daniel fails to conquer. It’s a slasher film that only understands the simplest formula of the subgenre – stalk and kill […] A run-through-the-motions that’s one long sustained yawn.” Flickering Myth

” …unoriginal, unimaginative redneck slasher retread […] Even with the glorious Lin Shaye in a prominent role, Get Gone is merely just another slasher movie with a backwoods setting.” Horror Media

“The redneck family isn’t particularly well assorted, and the actors constituting it sometimes look silly. Weston Cage Coppola makes every scene he’s in feel like a comedy. Michael Thomas Daniel wrote and directed Get Gone, and he did an impressive job with an empty resume.” Tales of Terror
