27 February 2001 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

This movie might catch your attention in the video store. Being a huge Bruno Lawrence fan, I liked it.

Five city kids cross the land of a hermit while on a hiking trip. They muck up his property and sense of tranquility. This irks him, and he turns out to be a very vicious and dangerous person, especially when angry. He then proceeds to follow their every move and make the remainder of their vacation a living nightmare. Sound familiar? A basic plot for a lot of films, but this one was fairly well done. Bruno makes a decent bad guy. The relationship between him and his "girlfriend" and their characterizations could have been done better, but that's overlookable. The main focus is on the story and chases.

The photography of the lovely New Zealand countryside in the film is a plus.

See this one if you have time to kill.

** 1/2 out of ****
