David manages to escape and helps the hunters to leave the place, but the freak hunts them down. David next awakens to a reality that's worse than his nightmare. Written by

Weird, this came out here as a new Italian horror with references toward Deodato and Argento. Can someone tell me were the references are? remember Deodato's notorious Cannibal Holocaust, straight in your face cruelty. Well, here it's all a bit dull. It didn't deliver me the shivers or anything just a few yawns.
It's clearly that Federico Zampaglione faced some money problems. This is surely a low budget. Why, because when the gore should comes in it's all done off-screen. And weren't those old Italian horrors known for their gore (Fulci, anyone?).
The acting was mediocre, nobody could really convince me. Maybe it's the story that did that. The first part it's all about two mountain bikers being hunted by some, sigh, hunters. But after 30 minutes suddenly a killer appears. The only good thing was the killer (Nuot Arquint) itself, what a body and what a face. The actors themselves are normal to do this stuff, Jake Muxworthy was in the beautiful Borderland (2007). Karina Testa came out of the gory Frontiere(s) (2007). For example, when Fred is burned by torturing he stands up were his skin do stay at the table he was bound but a few minutes later he's running like nothing happened.
I was really disappointed due the lack on gore. The ending saved the movie a bit. This could have been a really gory flick but why o why did they do it all off-screen?
