After being freed in the middle of the desert, one of the first things Dr. Sam MacKenzie does is take off his shirt to cool down. Being a Park Ranger, he would know that is the worst thing to do. All the experts say the best thing to do is keep your clothes on, as the Sun will quickly burn your skin otherwise, adding to your difficulties. See more »

Completely unconvincing; a nothing of a movie.
24 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

The title and cover try to promote this as some sort of horror thriller, but don't be fooled; it's really a revenge/survival story. It's meant to be about man's primal instincts, which surface under extreme circumstances, but it's so unconvincingly done that the four protagonists never seem to be more than an hour's walk away from civilization. Completely boring, filled with scenes of people just walking or driving around, it also resorts to all the usual stereotypes about paranoid Vietnam vets and evil, witchcraft-practicing Indians, having as a villain a man who is both of the above! In short, I'd rather be stranded in the middle of the desert than having to see this film again. 0 out 4.
