Daniel Emery Taylor,
Geez - this is what you get when you decide to take a chance on a direct to DVD slasher! The cover looks cool - the comparison to "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" obviously comes from someone associated with the film 'cuz no one in their right mind would compare those two - and the story doesn't sound too bad (for a slasher). But do not be fooled (like ME!) - this is total and utter CRAP.
It's hard to take a few things out and point to their ineptitude but here's a quick rundown; Acting is bad - effects are bad - dialogue is beyond belief and overall script is pure toilet paper - things like atmosphere and suspense are not present.
Personal faves; The movie is supposed to take place in Alaska where for some reason the sun never sets. Well OK, so we'll have a daylight slasher - at least that's new. Wrong! Interior scenes always show total darkness when looking at the windows yet when the folks go outside it's always bright. But the biggest laugh comes when a state official uses a torch to see where he's going in complete daylight. Also an encounter with a woman driver near the end has to be seen to be believed.
Maybe the film is best enjoyed when you know what you're getting into. Don't expect anything remotely good and you might have a few laughs Ed Wood "Plan 9" style. I've seen some bad slashers but I can't think of one that tops this turd. Perhaps the biggest laugh comes when watching the supplements on the DVD when the crew responsible for the flick praise it like it's a modern masterpiece of slasher cinema. How clueless can they get?
