Seven teens head up to a cabin on the lake for spring break. Mike has studied all horror films on video, and recognizes the signs of foreshadowing of doom. The others dismiss his concerns as the workings of a person that watches too many videos, but there really is something out there, and the teens begin experiencing an attrition problem when they start stumbling into all the cliches found in a typical teen horror film.

The character of Janet was a nerd in the original script. The script was rewritten to make Janet a foreign exchange student after the Brazil-born Claudia Flores was cast in the role. See more »

Off-beat 1990s shocker has roots in 1980s Evil Dead series.
Without knowing the year of production, apparently 1991 or 92, a horror film fan would think this unique and fun fright film would have been from a decade earlier.
Stylistically, it's very much like the Evil Dead series, or at least the first two of that series, and also has much of the same black humor and quick pacing.
Of course, the whole low-budget atmosphere contributes to that effect, as well as the talents of the unknown cast.
Basic story has an alien creature, rather smallish but carnivorous, running amok in the forest near a cabin of 7 teens. One of the teens is a horror film buff and constantly reminds the others of standard horror film situations they are placed in. Doesn't that sound familiar? However this film came before Scream!
Well worth a viewing.
