Typical of those so called "genre movies": a (very) thin concept and a lot of confidence from the director in his ability to pull up a good suspense/horror/whatever experience.
Actually the locations are great in The King of the Hill, and the camera seems to do whatever it takes to create some tension. So for the first 30 minutes there's a kind of provisional suspense developing. Then, once the story has run out of fuel, it gets boring, and even more boring as it switches to the hunter's point of view (a very dumb attempt at stretching the flimsy storyline even further).
Why they ever bothered to make a movie out of this scribbled one-line screenplay would be a mystery if gruesomeness alone was not a marketable value for some apparently dumb and bored teen audience.
