Did You Know?


The film was shot in 1981, but was shelved when the filmmakers couldn't find a distributor right away. It wasn't until 1983 when it was released to capitalize on the rising stardom of Daryl Hannah and Adrian Zmed. See more »


In the beginning, when the boy and girl are riding on the moped/motorbike, when the crash happens the girl's hair changes from short to longish, to short again. See more »


Dennis Zorich: If you people want to survive, you better start looking and thinking like the forest.

That was hardly final!
15 April 2005 | by (The World Of Movies) – See all my reviews

This one gives the opening a really good set-up, in the woods, creepy trees which display the sun softly peering through the green fingers that enclose the setting, and the non-existence of life...or so we thought. As soon as one man, and his horribly dubbed girlfriend appear, we see that someone, or something, is there, with sharp traps for the flesh in which it desires. More so like the recent thriller, "Wrong Turn", it has a cabin in the woods, and many "crimson" artifacts within it. Bottom line, a group of rowdy youngsters are in the woods, unaware that their puerile pranks could lead them into trouble, and they find it very quick. Film has some okay developments, and some pretty good moments in the beginning, but predictability takes charge, and the film slows down to the most misguided, boring film. The next thing you know it, the monster comes a knockin, and the film ends! Just as soon as it starts! What was that? I found myself wondering why I ever put my time into this! Maybe next time, I will watch a good thriller worth 80 minutes or so, but not this one. Never that. Worth a look, I guess, but don't expect a major find. 3/10 (and I'm being generous)
