Aryans just want to have fun
5 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Nightmare At Bitter Creek starts at a raid on a farm house conducted by the local sheriff who urges caution, rightly as it turns out because he's come on a nest of white supremacists who have all kinds of fire power. Several escape into the woods they know quite well.

Not knowing about these guys four women, Lindsay Wagner, Joanna Cassidy, Janet Motil, and Constance McCashin get ready for a girl's camping trip, a little roughing it in the woods themselves. They have Tom Skerritt as a guide and move into the rugged area where the Neo Nazis are hiding.

These guys maybe on the run, but that doesn't stop them from wanting a little fun, Aryans have their needs like the rest of us. And if the women aren't willing they're certainly good for target practice if nothing else.

After seeing the women and Skerritt escape by going down a waterfall like it was an amusement park ride, I threw my hands up in the air and proclaimed this is ridiculous. I now proclaim that to all of you.
