Storyline

Five doctors go on vacation deep in the Canadian wilderness. After all but one pair of the party's shoes disappear, the remaining shoed camper decides to hike out and go look for help. Soon after he leaves, however, his four companions realizes that something is very wrong when someone leaves a decapitated deer head just outside their camp. Even though they still don't have their shoes, they decide to follow their friend's trail out of the woods, but their path is blocked by someone who doesn't want to see them leave the forest alive.

A very good, overlooked backwoods thriller
6 September 2003 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Long before "The Blair Witch Project" became the official 'lost-in-the-woods-stalked-by-evil' movie, there was this poorly distributed low budget gem which deserves reevaluation and should be seen by any serious horror/thriller fan.

A buddy group of medical field professionals trek into the solitude of the forest for a relaxing fishing trip. On their first day out, their boots mysteriously turn up missing, marking the starting point of a tense and distressing game played against an unseen evil adversary. One by one, the men meet grisly fates, and a scattering of vague clues which may reveal the reason behind it all are left to be pondered.

A strong example of it's type which deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as DELIVERANCE.

8/10
