Storyline

Low budget filmmaker, Jayson has made the movie of his dreams... but to his dismay, it can't sell in Hollywood. The distributors tell him "... you have nothing exploitative in your movie. Add some sex scenes, more violence, and maybe we'll buy your film." The distraught filmmaker approaches his neophyte, semi-psychotic producer, Bravo and tells him, "... put together a cast and crew... we're going to re-shoot and give them what they want!" Bravo nervously tells him, "We're out of money. " Jayson screams at him, "I don't care. Do whatever you have to do!" Bravo enlists a young movie crew to follow them into the remote back woods of the Great Bear Mountains by telling them "There's no money, but when we sell this, you'll all get a big piece of the profits for your efforts... and great craft service!" Various 'B' movie actors, including stuntman Burt, and his gorgeous wannabe actress girlfriend, Ashley, join them as Jayson has promised her a role in the movie. After a series of '...

This movie is so dull and boring that even The Asylum or Troma might be embarrassed to release it. The plot in a nutshell is : a bunch of wanna-be film-makers venture into the woods to make a bad horror movie and are set upon by the afore-mentioned and barely-seen rubber-masked assailants. The movie is horribly 'color-corrected' into green-tinted nonsense. The 'FX' are not bad enough to be laughable or good enough to impress anyone. There is virtually no gore or even any nudity of note, but they DO toss in an impressive amount of 'Wilhelm Screams' and Commodore Amiga-caliber gunshots. O and there's a cave that looks like a menstruating vagina.
