Storyline

Dana is failing Biology. To pass she must attend an extra credit assignment with several classmates that will lead them into a remote region of the Great Dismal Swamp, a place teeming with life... and death. While the group keeps one eye out for hungry bear, deadly snakes and lurking gators, they are unaware of the real danger. For the top of the food chain lives in a dingy cabin not too far from their campsite, and he has an appetite for human flesh. Written by Anonymous

Hey! Out here if you want sushi you better catch you some f*cking fish!
5 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, formula for horror movie is to take three generously endowed college students out into the swamp and see who survives. Not very original, but you have to start somewhere.

Now, when Eve (Meagan Reedy) was lost, it really took the wind out of the movie. She sure could scream.

The movie moved slow until the end when we were treated to an unexpected surprise.

Dana (Lydia Chandler) did manage to get over her inability to dissect. Maybe she can pass Biology now.

Look for something better.
