Seems to be an inferior remake of the 1953 film Inferno with Robert Ryan, Rhonda Fleming, and William Lundigan.

After falling victim to a burglar, Nelson, a wealthy businessman, takes a trip to the desert with his wife Margo and lawyer/friend Jack. The trip takes an unexpected turn when Jack helps Nelson over a cliff. Jack and Margo return to the site with the sheriff only to discover Nelson's body is missing, indicating he is still alive. As Nelson struggles to survive against madness and the elements, two separate searches for him are conducted--one by an increasingly suspicious sheriff and the other by the treacherous Margo and Jack.

Remember it's only a B movie, nothing else.
8 November 2011 | by GUENOT PHILIPPESee all my reviews

Yes gentlemen, this is probably a film only made for DVD rental, never released in theatres, I guess. So don't ask too much from it. A good B movie, shot in locations with a tiny budget. Of course we have seen this kind of topic lots of times before: the wife, the husband and the couple's friend, and also the wife's lover, inappropriate lover. see what I mean? But, I repeat, for a TV film, or something like that, I find it adequate. The directing, acting and so on are forgettable, corny, everything you want, I agree. But I always watch for the story in first. And this one reminds me Roy Ward Baker's DANTE'S INFERNO, made in 1953, with nearly the very same story: the poor husband abandoned in the middle of the desert by the two lovers, the wife and her boy friend.

Yes gentlemen, show some gentleness for this kind of productions, please. There are not more than B movies for DVD releases, to be watched while eating a pizza with your wife and your friends - but beware, remember the lines above, be sure that those friends are not so closed to your dame !!!
