Trivia

The gore seen on-screen is real. It was obtained from a local meat packaging plant, and is primarily pig's blood and innards. The directors actually show picking it up in the making-of included on the DVD. See more »

Goofs

After the car accident, the two friends set out to find help. As they walk through the "blizzard" like weather, none of the snow is visible on either of the two actors. See more »

Cut this low budget film some slack, the effects were cool
6 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Today I watched Scarce (2008), directed by Jesse T. Cook and John Geddes, a film about a group of snowboarders on vacation. During a snow storm they are forced to seek refuge, but little did they know they are safer out in the storm. The people who grant them refuge are cannibals, surviving on what they 'hunt' throughout the winter.

Overall a pointless film with a very slow start, but the effects were cool, especially because it was on a low budget. I mean, of course I only watched it for the blood; I wouldn't sit down and watch a film with that premise if I were looking for an intellectually challenging experience.
