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

Its was allright
26 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Everyones giving this movie bad reviews. I for one thought it was allright. I mean its not going to win an oscar, but its not the worst thing Ive ever seen. The girls in it were hot, the acting was decent, and it was a little bit scary. I think this movie and all others should quit being disected and just enjoyed.
