Jack Sullivan has been discharged from the military after a lengthy court marshal for striking a superior officer. Along with his 9-year-old daughter Charlie, the two move back to Jack's childhood home of "Mentor Headlands", a small town located in Northeastern Ohio's marshlands. As familiar as the Headlands are to Jack, he is struck by all the new development and the loss of woods and marsh he used to play in as a child. Shortly after arriving to the house he inherited after his father passed away, Jack is reunited with his old friend Bob Perkins, who is now the Sheriff. Bob is in the midst of trying to figure out what has been killing and mutilating the local animal population. Several deer over the last week have turned up ripped to shreds and with the help of Park Ranger Sandy Parker; the two have concluded that a bear must have wandered into the area.

Bob Gray seems to be a likable guy and I appreciate his accomplishment in making a movie with such a small budget, but man oh man this movie was absolute torture to sit through. I forced myself to watch until the very end, hoping it would redeem itself with some inspired lunacy or an interesting twist. But nope, it was cliché after cliché, with some of the most wooden acting I've ever seen. Bob was at least animated, if amateurish. He was the only character with any trace of charisma. The rest of the cast seemed to have been woken up moments before they were required to perform their lines. This could all be forgiven, but the movie took itself way too seriously-what would have been moderately amusing as camp was deadly dull as straight drama. Don't be fooled by the Troma affiliation - Toxic Avenger this ain't!
