Storyline

Soldier David missed biking while serving in Iraq. Finally at liberty, he bicycles in Europe, heading to Shadow when he stops at a bar and meets the beautiful Angeline. Troublemaker hunters Fred and Buck bother Angeline, so David and the bar owner defend her. As David later camps in the woods, the wind carries away his tent, so Angeline invites him to share hers. As they ride their bicycles together and enjoy the wilderness the next day, they again cross paths with Fred and Buck, who chase the couple with their truck, threatening their lives. The quartet all suffer accidents and end up having to walk through the woods. Soon they are captured by a strange man who lives in an isolated house and tortures the men in his basement. 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.

Incredibly flawed at times but still decent enough
24 September 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Taking a biking tour through Europe, a former soldier accidentally angers a troupe of hunters poaching in the nearby forest, but soon find themselves tormented by a far more deadly threat that has no intentions of letting them leave the area alive.

A very troubling effort, as this entry really could've been great but does have a problem with introducing a few too many flaws at times. Basically two movies in one, the first half is a cliché-but-enjoyable romp in a forest as two people fight to escape from the hunters, which includes some thrilling chases through the forest roads on bikes as the hunters chase in an armored car shooting at them, confrontations with their vicious dog and more, all done under the cover of a heavy fog in a woodland setting to give a perfect chilling atmosphere to everything, despite it being routine and far from believable as there's really no motive for the hunters to turn as vicious as they do as quickly as shown here. The last half is pretty lame as the gang is captured by a maniacal killer in the forest and are tortured by the madman, with on reason offered for the scenario. The tortures don't make sense, and are interjected at random, but there's some good stuff to come from the compound escape and the chilling nature of the set-up, only for the ridiculous twist ending to come along and ruin it all. That hurts it almost as much as the length, so this is really flawed but still has some good stuff about it.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Extreme Graphic Language and drug use.
