The envelope handed to the waitress reads "Enjoy the ride to you're beautiful future - Vin." Apparently, there's no grammar checker in the writer's computer or the props people are illiterate morons. "You're" is the contraction of "you are." "Your" is the possessive form and what should have been used in this place. See more »
I tend to watch a lot of creature features, even though they tend to suck but this one nearly put me off them for life. There is no gore or nudity and virtually no blood, meaning this could probably be a U certificate if not for the bad language. Aside from Lance Henriksen and Tim Thomerson, the acting is pretty much dreadful. The plot is actually reasonable, and the screenplay tries harder than most to give its characters back stories and some kind of interest. Unfortunately the screenplay is far too talky, mostly risible and the few good lines are generally wasted by the poor acting. The direction is ridiculously amateur, turning every scene with action that could potentially be good into a blurry non-event. Most heinous of all is the underuse of the sasquatch, which makes this barely even classifiable as a creature feature. The sasquatch is certainly the most likable character, since it doesn't have to utter any rubbish dialogue and manages to bump off a few of the cast members. Even though it looks like it wandered onto the set from a completely different movie, its still a likable looking big hairy beast. Still, it doesn't provide any reason for watching this one, which isn't even redeemed by the mighty Lance Henriksen. It makes me sad that such a legend appears in this kind of dreck. Avoid it like the Ebola virus
