The setting is a small house and shack in the middle of the desert, an open area with no hiding places, yet the Chooper is able to run around dressed entirely in black in the middle of broad daylight without being noticed. See more »

I have dreams like this after too much Taco Bell
1 February 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, so this isn't one of Steckler's best films, but it's a lot better than "Sinthia: The Devils Doll."

Pretty Carolyn Brandt inherits a little house out in the middle of nowhere. Also on the property is an old shack...an old shack that is supposedly haunted by The Chooper, a vengeful Native American spirit. Anyone who unwisely ventures within the shack are never seen again...with the exception of two little girls who jump up and down on a stained mattress until they're chased off. (BTW - the little girls look exactly like their daddy, and I'll give you 3 guesses who daddy is!)

The killer isn't hard to spot, and after an hour or so of rodeo footage, Brandt's dreamy voice-overs and shots of her wandering around in the height of godawful 70s fashions, The Chooper reveals himself to her in a brief and un-shocking climax.

No, it's not a great film, but hardcore Steckler fans will not want to say they haven't seen it. If you saw "Incredibly Strange Creatures" and were disappointed by this one, don't give up, just go find a copy of "Rat Pfink a Boo Boo" and all will be well again, I promise.
