In this film Emmanuelle Vaugier does her best impersonation of Erica Cerra (the deputy sheriff from the Eureka series) as the sheriff of a small American town. So you have some Amerindians, some annoying hillbillies, farmers, truckers, etc, to which you add some attractive tourists and the ever present "jerk from the city". What else is missing? The monster!
The film actually started pretty good. Obviously low budget, I didn't expect a good monster, only a well presented state of tension. And it did present well. At about half the duration of the movie I thought it is going to be a more serious Tremors, which I also liked. And in a sense it was, only it lost itself in senseless gore, inept "scientific" explanations and silly Indian legends solution.
Bottom line: watch the first half, until the monster is going on the extended killing spree, stop the film, then think all day long about how it should continue. Then get intoxicated and watch the end, laughing your posterior off.
