Touching Story of Love and Betrayal
3 October 2003 | by Thereisnospoon0See all my reviews

If this movie was a food, it would be pizza. My reasons are that everyone likes pizza, and everyone would love this movie if they just gave it a chance. It has a very developed story line with many plot twists. When two hunters accidently kill the guardian of a feared creature, The Wendigo, The Wendigo goes on a murderous rampage on an island. A different group of hunters is stranded on the island due to a rather large snowstorm, left to fight for their lives against the Wendigo and the infamous chili monsters. Ahhhhh, the chili monsters. The chili monsters are one of the most brilliant creatures ever developed on the silver screen and their scene includes a brilliant piece of music to go along with it. After seeing this scene and hearing the music you will never want to see another movie. This movie has the best score ever. See this movie if you want to have a good time. Trust me.

9976 out of 9976 stars.
