Snowbound Survival Horror. The witches are all in your mind.

A group of young people who all seem to have dark secrets and fresh trauma - it must be tough being a college student these days! - go on a skiing trip to Western Massachusetts (actually Canada). On the way there's a detour and they end up going through the mythical, mystical town of Stoughton Falls, where witch trials (and hangings) occurred in the 1690s, but were somehow overshadowed by Salem's drama. One of the guys thinks he knows a shortcut (one guy always does!) and they all end up stranded in the woods during a snowstorm. Two of 'em go out for help, only one comes back, seemingly possessed. Everybody starts dying either via murder, the elements, or misadventure.

As far as survival horror goes (the supernatural twist is nominal), it's ok. The major problem is this: all these people suck. Although it's never actually explained, there's a strong indication that the girl who falls under the thrall of the witchy woods was gang-raped and videotaped in a frat-party incident, and that most of the dudes in the car were there, one way or the other. WHY WOULD THESE PEOPLE GO ON VACATION TOGETHER? Every bit of the dialogue is people bickering. Even the (presumptive) Final Girl is cheating on her boyfriend. As people, they are all such unlikeable zeroes that you can't possibly care about their miserable fate.

In conclusion, if you like watching awful people get hypothermia, this one is for you.
