Trivia

The interior scenes inside of the hunting lodge were all filmed on a soundstage at Pinewood Studios in England on a life-sized set. The opening scenes at Kenny's house and the exterior scenes on the island were all filmed on location in Spain. Additional "highway" scenes were probably filmed in Northern Michigan by a 2nd unit crew. See more »

Goofs

When Ken and Artie climb the bluff, Ken is carrying a bolt action rifle. But after they split up and Ken returns to the lodge, he enters the cabin carrying a pump action shotgun. The rifle is never seen again. See more »

I'd like to see this come out on DVD!!
2 August 2002 | by lonewolf82000See all my reviews

This film was actually not bad, for it's genre! A group of hunters abduct a couple, (A young female and middle-aged guy) They take them up into the wilderness and subject them both to humiliations and abuse. The girl is coerced into having a night of sex with the men. She becomes a sexual toy for them as she tries using her womanly charms to avert what she slowly begins to realize is a deadly game unfolding. Before too long, the men turn the couple loose in the woods and tell them they will be hunted like animals. Seems the men, all Vietnam vets who having returned from the war, no longer get a thrill hunting animals after hunting "The real thing!" The plot has been done before, but it works here, the film is enjoyable, suspenseful and at times titillating! I am really hoping this comes out on DVD. I watched this on late night TV years ago, and later found a badly done pre-recorded copy. It's not a classic film! But it's well worth a look if you like this genre!
