Trivia

Written on spec in the seventies. Several directors, including Tobe Hooper, had tried to get it going. And several studios, including Amblin. The project was re-set up in 2003 Philippe Martinez at Bauer Martinez Studios with Dolph Lundgren as the star attached and Steven R. Monroe set to direct. The production got canceled as a deal could not be finalized with the writers. Another project for Lundgren and Monroe at Bauer Martinez, "The Soul of Caleb Lee", also fell through, but Lundgren then went on to make his directorial debut for the company with the movie "The Defender".

Goofs

When Cerina Vincent's character meets a Native American that knows about the creature she is told that the creature does not like water and therefore stays in its cave when it rains. In a scene just previous to this the creature stalks and kills another character when it is obviously raining quite hard. See more »

Better than expected
2 July 2007 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

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.
