Insane man in woods


A group of teen-agers vacationing in the tropics take a boat out to a seemingly deserted island. They soon find, however, that the island is inhabited by a wealthy recluse and his staff. While their host is initially hospitable, he quickly reveals his true purpose: to hunt down and kill each of his visitors, as he has done with everyone unlucky enough to set foot on his island.

Mr. Brady hunted in the woods
20 August 2008 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

A group of youngsters land on a beautiful, seemingly deserted island while taking a detour on their boating trip. After exploring the wooded island for a few hours they run into a seemingly sweet older man who convinces them to stay at his house since it is getting dark and there are a lot of scary animals roaming the woods at night. The group all agree but there's just something not right about this older man. It turns out he is a crazy millionaire who lets victims loose on the island while he hunts them down and kills them to keep as "trophies". Really not a bad story (although not original) but the execution really is a bit silly. The dialog really is bad especially at the beginning. Robert Reed plays one of the youngsters in an early role of his. It is somehow amusing to hear his voice once you know him as Mike Brady. Although most of the acting was plastic, I thought the part of the crazy millionaire played by Wilton Graff, was pretty decent in what is clearly a role best suited for Vincent Price. A few of the bit parts were well played too actually. This is a remake of "The most dangerous game" that falls short in many places but I really didn't feel bored with this 68 minute movie.
