Storyline

One year after seven local students are inexplicably murdered at a lake house party near the Canadian border, recent high school grads Travis and his buddy Nate plan a celebratory road trip to Canada. While cutting through the woods at night, the two friends are savagely attacked by mysterious creatures and Nate is dragged off leaving Travis- to run for help. After Travis's efforts to save Nate end up in the death of Nate's brother, Chris, the police begin to investigate the events surrounding the deaths. Did things go as Travis claims they did, or are his claims of Sasquatch-like creatures signs of deeper troubles in his world?

I got goosebumps...
14 October 2007 | by (Erie, PA) – See all my reviews

It's rare that we see such a new and original take on an old story. The Sasquatch myth has been around forever, but this film gives us a whole new way to look at it. I can't say too much without giving anything away, but I can definitely recommend this film.

After the film was over, and on the entire drive home, we had a heated discussion in the car about various aspects within the film.

From David Blair's frat-boy like performance in the beginning, to Kent Harper's completely believable portrayal of a demented, but curious recluse, all the characters were well acted and believable. Mostly, however, Adam Pitman was a shining star. The range of emotions he went through not only highlighted his acting talent, they made the whole story, through the twisted turns and trails it takes, completely believable.

To anyone considering picking up distribution, you'd be a fool not to. To those who know of a showing near you, go see it. You won't be sorry (but you might be scared.) I was afraid of Sasquatch (don't call him Bigfoot) when I was a kid. After seeing this film, that fear is creeping back up on me.

Kudos on a well-written, well-acted, well-produced, and high-quality piece.
