Better than average low budget horror movie from the Sci-Fi channel.
It's a good cat-and-mouse yarn in the vein of Jeepers Creepers, with the creature "feeding on" the terror of its prey before finishing them off. The two principals characters are developed pretty well, giving a clear notion of what the creature's obsession is with its intended victim. That would be a park ranger named Danielle (Cerina Vincent, who carries the film well), stationed at a secluded area of an unnamed national park (based on dialog, it's apparently the Grand Canyon area).
Danielle's angst, fear, suffering, and her resolve to turn the tables on her tormentor are all portrayed well, as is her pivotal back story. These tie in very well with what we learn about the monster. Further, the director wisely resists temptation to reveal what the thing looks like until near the end, which makes it all the more terrifying. It could strike at any moment, and often does, only seen in fleeting glances, partially hidden from view.
About the only pitfalls are the goofy boss ranger and the obnoxious lost hikers with "Monster meal" tattooed on their foreheads. Also, there's a predictable lingering question mark left open at the end. Not a sensational movie, but worth a watch.
