A great 80's horror movie....
17 February 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This movie rocks! It has everything! Four evil indian sorcerers, a bunch of college students getting what they deserve, and of course: a heroic park ranger who takes the evil down with nothing but his special whip. The acting isn't that bad for a mid 80's zombie movie. And there is a pretty decent amount of gore. If your a fan of zombie movies..you should at least watch this movie once. And don't use Ranger Girard's weapon, (a whip) or your asking for it, big time.
