Trivia

Originally Iris Martindale had a much more humorous demise scripted. Iris was suppose to be lured into a quicksand pit by butterflies, where she was to drown. The scene was shot, but it was deemed too silly for the final film. The scene was re-shot to have Iris killed by a rattlesnake instead. Clips of the original death scene can be seen in the films trailer. See more »

Goofs

When Clint is at Jessie's Grocery, he picks up the rope that was attached to the boat and says that it was "clearly chewed through". However, if you look at the close-up shot of the rope, it was very clearly cut, not chewed. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the opening credits, Sam Eliott's character is taking photographs in the swamp. Each time he supposedly takes a picture, the picture freezes and a credit appear on screen. Each new credit is accompanied by the sound of a clicking camera. See more »

Effective despite premise and budget
29 March 2000 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

While it's pretty obvious that this film was done on a low budget (i.e. the same shots are repeated over and over and over) this is a pretty effective horror movie and deserves a look. The death scenes are well executed (and the end is quite chilling), the music is appropriate (it's sounds almost like an "angry swamp"), and the locations are put to good use. It's definitely a b-movie and is not at all "great cinema", but it's still a minor classic and should have some kind of cult status.
