Storyline

Annie's (Jennifer Blanc) life is in jeopardy after she's witnessed the horrific rape and murder of her closest friend. Fleeing from two attackers (Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood) she stumbles across kyle (Michael Biehn), a recluse living in the middle of the woods. Kyle finds the stillness of the woods comforting. The ruggedly handsome loner stays far from civilization - that is - until a single knock on his door throws his solitary life into chaos. Two worlds collide in this psychological thriller that will make you question your trust in mankind. Written by Production Staff

Trivia

According to Michael Biehn, the person who inspired him to direct was Robert Rodriguez. While shooting Planet Terror (2007), Rodriguez told Biehn that he should've made a grindhouse movie himself. Biehn wasn't very sure about it, but promised himself he'd have done it one day. A few years later, while in Canada working on Xavier Gens' The Divide (2011), Biehn saw a guy in a restaurant reading Robert Rodriguez's book "Rebel Without a Crew"; he remembered his promise and put things in motion to make this movie.

The Victim is you
6 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Who wrote this? a bunch of monkeys! This is crap. The reviewers are lemmings. Everyone is afraid to offend. Michael Biehn, I want to thank you for stealing 80 minutes of my life. If you like poor acting and people driving around a mountain road then have I got the film for you.

Barely any nudity. No gore but lots of bore.

This is not a horror film.

It is a horrible film.

I do recommend this for those who suffer from insomnia.

Please stop cranking out meaningless garbage. Go back and watch Halloween.

That was low budget yet original suspenseful and fun.
