Storyline

Pat Baker is a small town sheriff. His son, Kurt, is a deranged young man with a dark secret. Sheriff Baker's worst nightmare comes true when Kurt escapes from a psychiatric hospital where he was locked away for the brutal murder of his mother thirteen years earlier. Gary, a hospital security guard, sets out into the woods to stop him, but soon finds himself relentlessly hunted by the deranged psychopath intent on killing him and anyone who crosses his path. Sheriff Baker launches an intense search to find his son, only to discover that his daughter, Sara, and her friends are camping in the same woods where Kurt has escaped. Kurt's psychosis escalates, as does his vengeful killing spree, culminating in a terrifying, climactic confrontation with Kurt, the sheriff and his family. Written by Lock It In Entertainment

Halloween meets High Tension
24 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie last night and I must say I was highly impressed for a low budget horror film. I agree with the other comments that there is some unnecessary scenes or "fat" that should have been trimmed from this movie. For example some of the scenes involving the teenage characters are not only unnecessary but also involve sub b-level acting which is at times irritating. Other than this movie was kept me on the edge of my seat, but as the summary says it borrows heavily from both halloween and high tension...overall this is a solid film that competes with most of the horror movies Hollywood has to offer and most fans of the genre will be pleasantly surprised.
