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

Dismal horror movie indeed!
4 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a really dismal horror movie with absolutely no horror or drama and it is truly dismal as the title suggests. For me its a very poor mans 'Wrong turn' because this movie definitely takes the 'wrong turn' many times. It might have been better if it was filmed in 'blair witch project' film because as an amateur film it would have been more effective. the crocodile and snake scenes were completely laughable and the only enjoyable bits of the film (if I can call them that) were the sex scenes (but this was not meant to be a porno movie of any kind). Nothing clever or unpredictable or intrigueing or compelling about this movie and like a boring goalless draw in soccer, this will soon be forgotten. Watch it if you like, forget it afterwards and move on.
