Greed...plain, stinkin' greed.
19 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a gritty story about greed. It begins at a cabin in the middle of no where. Unexpectedly, Pete (Ray Danton) shows up at his old friend's home. Why would he show up now? Well, his prospects are poor and he's looking to stay with Jesse (Rory Calhoun) for a while. However, there is a plane crash nearby and the pair manage to make there way into the mountains and they find the survivors. Here's where it gets interesting, one of them (Thomas Gomez) is a thief--and he's got a briefcase full of money. This swine offers the pair money to take him back to civilization...and it's pretty clear he doesn't want the other survivors to make it back as well. What's to come of this hellish trek back to civilization.

The best thing about this film is evil. Ray Danton and Thomas Gomez were both excellent at playing evil. For this reason, it's worth seeing this relatively low budget thriller.
