Sadly awful
6 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another user said that the budget was only 10K. If that is true what did they do with the money? The actors were truly uninspired and didn't manage to evoke the tiniest feeling of care from me. The story (or what passed as a script) was incoherent other than here's a bunch of dumb kids in the woods getting picked off one by one. Late in the movie they throw in several "Deliverance"-style yahoos just out of the blue for no reason I could figure out, the of course kill them off immediately!

And here's a good question: WHY when you have such a low budget and cannot afford a good monster suit would you show the monster at the first opportunity? Also, WHY overlay the "scratched film effect" over the film every time the monster is seen? Is he supposed to be from an earlier time?

Also - the whole thing takes place in a northern forest and the characters are dressed appropriately. But at the end when they call for help and a "rescue helicopter" flew out to them - look at the PALM TREES in the footage shot from the copter! What a hoot!

The credits suddenly pop up as though the director has gotten tired of the movie and no longer wants to explain what happens to the last few kids. And the credits themselves are so amateurishly done - it's like some kids in junior high school did this movie.

My wife and I were just looking for a bad horror movie to laugh at. The genre provides many such films. But the film-making here is *so* bad it quickly became no fun. My goal here is to add another voice to help others avoid wasting their money renting this. It is bad, bad, bad. Don't quit your day jobs!
