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

Come on people, it wasn't that bad
13 November 2003 | by (IL) – See all my reviews

Why does everybody hate this movie so much. I mean, it's not a masterpiece like Halloween or other popular horror movies, but I thought it was fun to watch and the third story was actually kind of clever. I think this movie should get credit for some of the effort they put in to making this movie. It was great in a campy sort of way.
