Lynda Day George,
The depletion of the earth's ozone layer causes animals above the altitude of 5000 feet to run amok, which is very unfortunate for a group of hikers who get dropped off up there by helicopter just before the quarantine is announced. Written by

Sometimes crude but reasonably effective revenge of nature flick.
I suppose in terms of the variety of animals etc which go on the rampage, this film is perhaps the ultimate revenge of nature film. Its focal point about the dangerous effects of a disintegrating o-zone layer is delivered with a sledge hammer but it does succeed in a blunderingly effective way due to several disturbing images. However, anyone who may have forgotten that Leslie Nielsen played (very) straight roles for years before moving into comedy will be in for a surprise here. He creates a thoroughly unpleasant character in this movie (but his wrestle with a grizzly bear is probably the highlight of the movie). Actually, a number of cult and semi well known actors turn in performances which are well below their best in this film. Perhaps that, along with its cop-out ending, are the films biggest failings. Well worth a look although Kingdom of the Spiders is better as revenge of nature films go One question: What does nature have against poor Susan (Jaws) Backlinie?
