When a carjacking leaves L.A. screenwriter Eric recovering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen, wife Alicia nurses him back to health. Four months later, the two depart for a second honeymoon in an idyllic setting in the mountains. They are snuggly ensconced in front of a crackling fire when Cale, a hunter who's ostensibly lost his sense of direction in the snow storm and nearly frozen to death, appears at their cabin door. Reluctantly, Alicia agrees with Eric that they have to take him in for the night. "It's too late and the weather's too bad to try to get him into town, tonight," Eric says. "I'll take him in the morning." But, when morning comes and Eric is unable to start his truck, Cale's presence begins to take on sinister proportions. Alicia surreptitiously searches through his backpack and discovers that he has no identification. Cale absentmindedly lets drop that he has friends in Folsom Prison and he becomes agitated when he learns that Eric has supposedly thrown away the ... Written by Mark Fleetwood <>

Pretty good for a low-budget movie
15 January 2001 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Although this is a low-budget movie, I thought it was a pretty good one. It's about Alicia and Bill, who are trying to get away from the stressful envirement of the big city, after Bill, who is a writer, is shot by some criminals. They plan a short vacation, and go to the mountains to get some rest. After they get there, the daughter of the owner of the park, is murdered by a man named Kale. This man escapes, and will be found by the couple, who take him inside to recover from the cold. Soon he is disturbing the atmosphere, and he tries to steal the heart of Alicia. They seem to know each other from the past, and what happens next,well, just watch the movie and find out!

The acting wasn't always of a high level, but Lysette Anthony did a good job as Alicia. Anyway, I found this a pretty good movie, although it's low-budget. If it's on TV, try is out!
