I disagree -- Mike did throw the map in the creek on purpose. It might be fair to say he got what he had coming. And they were all stressed out (understandably) in the beginning of the movie when they are lost in the woods. I feel like all three characters acted poorly towards each other when they were so anxious about being lost.

Unclear, a dead mouse is shown. Could have been something planted for the film, or something found during filming.

None of them are really “scary” though, you just build very high level of suspense and then suddenly a tree will be in the foreground lit up white by the camera, for example. So it’s more of an existing suspension paired with unpredictable environment. Hope that makes sense.

Only said yes to get people to read this comment: there is a scene partway through in which Mike is doing a hand motion that looks identical to drawing up. Nothing in his hands is seen, but if you’re sensitive to that kind of stuff it is worth warning.
