In the spring of 2009, two friends left everything behind for one weekend. Their goal was to hike the remote region surrounding Troy, NC. After they were reported missing four days late, a massive manhunt was organized by the authorities. The following week, a damaged video camera was found in a clearing next to their last known location. Its contents have yet to be authenticated. Written by
The actual filming of the movie took only four and a half days (total) to complete. Two weekends were set aside to finish the project, but seven months elapsed during the "official filming" period due to the employment obligations of the cast and crew. The prolonged gap between filming dates eventually became necessary, too, due to the need to wait for the early winter season to arrive for the sake of setting consistency. See more »
dude! i hate the word Dude! But Dude - it's not too bad a movie.
Not a terrible film for its low budget - one reviewer online wrote about the humorous dialog as a way to endure the problems of its being low budget. I don't have a problem with films being low budget. what I do hate is the continuous use of the word Dude. If you took that word out, the opening 30 minutes would have a total of about 3 minutes of dialog. Otherwise, the silliness of the movie is somewhat endearing. Being from NC myself, I enjoyed seeing local areas on screen and hearing the "local dialog" of the hunter.
The most redemptive aspect of the movie is the final 15 minutes of the movie. The dialog is hilarious. I enjoyed the Indiana Jones reference about halfway through, as well as the Bigfoot hunter parody in the last 12 minutes. It was very witty. In addition, the conversation the two main characters have about adapting to his new handicapped status is hilarious. This last few minutes redeems the whole of the movie.
