Storyline

Matt is haunted by the death of a girl from a car accident he caused years ago. Matt was drunk and as he reached for the car radio, he struck the girl as she crossed the road. The guilt that he feels has altered his sense of reality, making Matt's life a mystery full of shadows and phantoms. Now, years later Matt goes away for weekend with his new girlfriend Dawn. After a wild session of lovemaking, Dawn goes for a walk. While she is away a strange man with an ax comes into the motel room and attacks Matt. After that incident Matt goes into the woods, looking for Dawn. There he encounters Dawn's family who tie him down and put him on trail for the murder of the girl years before. They find him guilty and he is sent back into the forest to be hunted down by the family. The deeper Matt runs into the forest the farther his mind is lost to the Blackwoods.

Goofs

When Matt is spying on Dawn and her family, the initial camera shot from outside the home displays Matt on the right side of the window. However, once the camera changes to a position inside the home, he is shown on the opposite (left) side of the window. The camera then shifts to show the family, and when Matt is almost caught for making a noise he is back on the original (right) side of the window again. See more »

User Reviews

This gimmicky thriller about redemptive guilt is too flashy for it's own good.
12 May 2003 | by (Colorado Springs) – See all my reviews

This German-financed, low-budget thriller is undermined by a listless script and annoying slickness in the editing. The lackluster performances don't help and when all is said and done, it's really just a public-interest morality play. A flash in the pan for late-night cable viewers.
