Storyline

Thunder Mountain somewhere in the American wilderness, has a reputation that has scared away travellers, both white and Indian, for hundreds of years. Undaunted by the ghost stories surrounding the mountain, a father decides it's just the place for him and his son to go camping and do a little bonding. Strange voices and stranger footprints around their campground try to warn the pair away, but Dad is unconcerned and blithely pushes on. Eventually, however, the two come face to face with the force standing guard over this forbidden mountain. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

A wilderness film
11 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think that this is a good wilderness family film, kids like it. It is like the old Disney wildlife films with little plot and terrible acting. Dated, but what isn't in this genre. If you are looking for a thriller this is not your movie, but kind of fun otherwise. There were quite a few of these movies made in the late 70's. They fit into the group of wildlife movies that were independently distributed to counter the mostly R rated movies that were distributed at the time. They tended to do very well up until the mid 80's when production values increased significantly. Still worth looking at for what it is. There are quite a few of these film made but most did not make it to video.
