On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
Chris Flynn is driving his car for a job interview in another city. However, an accident with a trunk transporting chemical products blocks the highway and Chris looks for an alternative route through the mountains of West Virginia to accomplish his schedule. Due to a lack of attention, he crashes another car parked in the middle of the road with flat tires. Chris meets a group of five friends, who intended to camp in the forest, and they decide to leave the couple Francine and Evan on the place, while Chris, Jessie, Carly and her fiancé Scott tries to find some help. They find a weird cabin in the middle of nowhere, where three violent cannibalistic mountain men with the appearance of monsters live. The two couples try to escape from the mountain men while chased by them. Written by

Several of the cast and crew were covered in poison ivy throughout the filming of the movie, this was due to the chairs being placed in what was first thought to be a group of weeds only later to be discovered as a patch of the rash causing plants. See more »

anyone who expects any movie to be perfect is just always going to find failure. no movie can be exactly right because they have a large variety of people to please. if you are expecting to find a movie nowadays that totally freaks you out, that is hard. we have seen almost everything by now. this movie isn't trying to be amazing, it is just meant to freak you out and provide you with some gore. it does do this. i watched it for the first time in the dark, it sure scared me. this movie is a little different from the predictable and sometimes a little bit annoying movies like Scream, I know what you did last summer, etc. it is a good movie for people who aren't looking for too much. just to have a different cast of people than the conventional ones, Eliza dushku, who i am a fan of, isn't your usual wilting, running screamer. she is just as strong as the men and doesn't always need help. Desmond Harrington is nice to look at and has a strong quality about him. these two working together can be enjoyable and have the ability to survive. this movie is different enough and scary enough to be enjoyable. i sure enjoyed it, and i bought it.
