Typical.

A woman is raped back in the forties. Now flash foward to the 1980's. A group of teens crash their boat on a small island. But they are not alone, a humongous person, the product of the above metioned rape, is out there stalking them and waiting for the right moment to pick them off.

Starts off very good, but quickly falls apart. Featuring every single cliche in the book and the lighting is awful, you don't even get a good look at the deformed, humongous mutant. The ending is pretty exciting though. My rating: 4 out of 10.
