Storyline

Two teens on their way to a backwoods party come across a beautiful young woman having car trouble. Their search for help only gets them lost, deep in the woods, where they meet Forest Ranger Bill with a penchant for scary stories. The campfire flickers long into the night as the ranger uses words to weave his tapestry of terror, filling their young minds with a host of horrific images that will be burned into your consciousness long after the fire's last embers have gone out. Insane doctors, Indian ghosts, bad drugs, a deranged handyman with shiny new shears - all that and more awaits anyone brave enough to stay until sunrise... if you live that long! Written by Schleppy

I thought it was funny
16 June 2003 | by (az) – See all my reviews

Was I expecting to be truley scared? um no, and if you are never see an indie horror flick. The actors were cute and you could tell this wasn't supposed to be some blockbuster gone wrong. It was for fun, something to past the time.

The skull, i admit had me thinking "oh no another fangoria!" but I went with because I was in the mood for something NOT serious. The first two stories were almost mirror images, unrealistic portrayle of teenage america and what we consider "fun". (I dunno about you but I've never ran through the woods entertaining myself my playing leaf hockey, and looking for old challenged gardeners)

But alot of the dialogue is funny, and the last story was stupid at the beginning I agree(why do the girls always have to be the prudes during hot n' heavy sessions??)but after a while it became interesting and at the end the screaming was very hilarious. Which I"m sure the director intended it to be.

But seriously, was anyone else confused about the ending??
