The Shortcut is a 2009 horror slasher thriller from director Nicholaus Goossen in which a group of teenagers find an unused short cut that goes through the woods to their high school. Local legend has it that there's a crazy old man who lives near this path and that he once abducted a group of teenagers years ago. Derek, a new teen in town, decides to ignore this old legend so he and his friends start to use the shortcut and try to solve the mysterious secrets that may be buried deep within the woods. Will they get to the bottom of the secret or will the old crazy killer get to them first? A little bit of both! Mysterious will be revealed and teenagers will be killed. Following the tropes of the standard slasher film, 'The Shortcut' may appeal to fans of the Friday the 13th series, as long as they don't expect anything too different or original.
