Goofs

In the opening scene, shot across the bridge into the village, across the bottom of the screen are the words "Shade Gap, PA, 1966." Right above those words is a grey pickup truck parked in a driveway - a 1968 Ford F100. To the right, almost totally obscured by bushes, you can see the tail lights of a Chevy Blazer. See more »

A Gripping Tale of Terror!
7 July 2001 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This movie probably wouldn't have interested me if it wouldn't have happened so close to where I live. The (true) plot line deals with a lonely mountainman called Bicycle Pete (David Morse, The Green Mile) and the young 17-year-old hostage Peggy Ann Bradnick. While walking home from school one day the dangerous mountainman takes Peggy Ann, the whole thing explodes into the largest manhunt in all of Pennsylvania history! The movie basically tells the story of the kidnapping and her long fight to survive. Packed with a great cast, an also the story. Stars- Megan Follows, David Morse, and David Soul. For any Pennsylvanian that has not watched this movie, it is worth it! And just for anyone that has not watched this movie watch it! A great Thriller from the early 90's!
