"B" grader with an edge!
16 September 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Not really a flick you'd remember 5 minutes after the final credits. Do not be fooled by the insane user-rating here. Think 5.7 and thats being generous.

Vaguely along the lines of HITCH HIKER but with neither the budget or the talent! Billy Drago's girlfriend is disgustingly butchered while camping in the wilds, by a masked psycho who has obviously watched too many Jason Voorhees movies. The Police are sceptical to say the least as to his explanation of his girlfriend's demise. Stricken almost dumb with shock initially, he finds a willing ear in psychiatrist Celia Warren (Susan Strasbourg).

The denouement reveals not only that Sly Stallone is the best actor in his family but that Doug McClure is also long past his use-by date. One of the most amateurish of final death-scenes you will ever see. Its almost worth watching.
