A mild-mannered teacher and a hazmat specialist have to figure out how to stop an unstoppable creature who feeds on light and energy, and moves with exponential speed, before it destroys everything in its path.
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. Written by

because face it, good Italian horror movies are OVER. There's no more Deodato, no more Argento (at least he doesn't have any good ideas left), no more Bava, no more Fulci. Guys like this Zampaglione (leader of a boring Italian pop band, by the way) try to revamp a genre that has nothing to do with them, filling movies with clichès and Hollywood influences, with LAME results. I'm Italian, I love cannibal holocaust, I love deep red, I love most of Fulci movies, and it pains me to say PLEASE don't be hyped just because this is an Italian horror movie: it's dull, boring, gratuitous, full of clichès and ideas that have already been explored way better, and does not deserve a good score on this site.
