Storyline

A bunch of city slickers from different backgrounds go into the wild mountains to be one with nature, but basically to have a good time. However, a paramilitary group has chosen the same time to go camping. When one of the soldiers thinks their boss has been killed by one of the city slickers, he coaxes his team into exterminating all of them. They will have to rely on their wits and on each other in order to survive. Written by Steve Richer <sricher@sympatico.ca>

Bubba Ho-Hum
27 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A group of people who have signed up for a wilderness survival course get terrorized by a more militant group. Of all the Coscarelli movies I've seen, I liked this the least. The film had none of the originality of Phantasm, nor the sheer awesomeness of Bubba Ho-tep, not even the dumb fun of Beastmaster. Instead we get a rather pedestrian ho-hum action movie in the cookie cutter mold of a million other 'group stuck in the wilderness against baddies' genre films complete with stock characters that don't really have memorable personalities or any likability. The great Lance Henriksen is the only actor who gets through this one with his dignity intact. Perhaps i'm being a bit too hearse with the film, it's not that bad and makes a merely watchable diversion, I just can't help but hold Don to a higher esteem as the rest of his output is rather marvelous.

My Grade: C-

Eye Candy: Traci Lind goes skinny dipping, but only her top is exposed

DVD Extras: Behind the scenes featurette; 2 U.S. and 1 International trailer for the film; and trailers for "Phantasm" "Phantasm 3", "Kenny & Company", "the Garden" & "Near Dark"
