The Dyatlov Pass incident referred to the mysterious deaths of nine hikers in the Ural mountains in 1959. the incident happened on a spot named Kholat Syakhl, meaning Dead Mountain due to the lack of activities there. the spot after the incident had also been named the Dyatlov Pass. Dyatlov being the leader's name. for the film, a group of American students retraced the steps of the hikers to investigate the mystery themselves.
despite already had expectation that the film had no concrete ending to it since the very beginning, the facts that were revealed throughout the film made the seemingly cheapskate film interesting. we were surprised to find ourselves glued to the screen until its very end. for the film, the mysterious deaths were explained to be confidential military missions as well as teleportation. the twists of having the remaining two survivors returned back in time being completely distorted and savage was very impressive. another twist worth paying attention was the camera recordings, which at some point, overwhelmed us.
