Mildly strange mystery effort, but severely underwhelming
28 April 2011 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

The back cover of the VHS rental tape of "Into The Fire" (aka "The Legend of Wolf Lodge") babbles on about the woods surrounding Wolf Lodge being a holy place - or better yet: unholy grounds, as they were once an Indian burial ground - now inhabited by an vengeful spirit that likes to punish wrong-doers. Sadly, this info boils down to nothing more than a subplot that's never developed throughout the entire film. Heck, the legend only gets mentioned merely as a side note. Instead, we get another attempt at neo-noir with "Into The Fire": A lonesome musician just happens to park his car at the wrong bar in the wrong town and gets entangled in a triangular relationship between a femme fatal & her violent, drinking husband (who happened to have blown away the entire family's fortune). A young waitress gets thrown in for some more sexual goings-on and in the end it's all about who's going to kill who for a fair amount of money. A few horroresque scenes are throw in the mix - mostly nightmarish sequences - but they don't add up to much, really. Nevertheless, "Into The Fire" is probably a worthwhile time-waster because of some sex scenes and a couple of unforeseen twists near the end of the plot. But somehow, the movie (and the twists) don't have any impact on the viewer. The film's not badly made, has some nice tracking & crane shots, but the title "The Legend of Wolf Lodge" is pretty misleading. There simply isn't much of a legend to talk about. Not much in terms of suspense either. Just a film to have a quick peek at and be done with it.
