R | | Thriller
Seems to be an inferior remake of the 1953 film Inferno with Robert Ryan, Rhonda Fleming, and William Lundigan.

After falling victim to a burglar, Nelson, a wealthy businessman, takes a trip to the desert with his wife Margo and lawyer/friend Jack. The trip takes an unexpected turn when Jack helps Nelson over a cliff. Jack and Margo return to the site with the sheriff only to discover Nelson's body is missing, indicating he is still alive. As Nelson struggles to survive against madness and the elements, two separate searches for him are conducted--one by an increasingly suspicious sheriff and the other by the treacherous Margo and Jack.

Refreshing comedy that stands out from the ordinary imitators.
24 June 2004 | by (Sacramento, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

When I saw this movie on the cable (I don't believe that it ever made to the cinema), I wasn't expecting much, but to my surprise, with these hardly famed cast, the whole presentation stood out. Not only the acting and the story line were good, but also the photography and editing. Although it's obviously a low-budget film, something about it made it feel genuine (if not ingenious). Perhaps it's the new faces of the actors, or the comic feel over the resemblance of the sadder City Slickers. Overall, it's a very entertaining, simple-and-easy, and refreshing movie that gives you great taste while watching it, and also great after taste! The general plot is simple: Your wife and a good friend conspire to kill you for your fortune. He lures a city slicker like you to the desert to see a prime piece of property. He pushes you off the cliff and disguises the fall as a fatal accident. But you somehow survive the fall and later on the harsh desert. Overcoming the survival challenges you gradually transform yourself into an indigenous warrior for the ultimate revenge.. Well, you can guess the rest. However, you won't know the comic subtlety that it brings unless you're fortunate to find a copy to watch!
