Storyline

Pam (Sims) gathers a group of college students to join her in a trek to an abandoned mine on a remote, forested mountain. Though her companions believe they are going to help reclaim and restore the area's environment, Pam knows of strange events in both the distant and recent past. Her interest appears to be more in the line of folklore and parapsychology than the environment. The group experiences a number of misfortunes and mysteries before arriving in the area of the mine. They soon encounter a hermit (Haggerty) living alone in a cabin and he seems to know quite a bit about the sinister nature of the region. All must confront and escape the evil that has lurked at the mine since a tragedy there in 1845. Written by JHC3

Typical Quicky No-budget Horror
15 January 2012 | by BloodTheTelepathicDogSee all my reviews

University professor Pam leads a group of students and her boyfriend (Jay Richardson) on a little excursion to rural route redneck land on what she claims to be an environmental field trip. But she has ulterior motives, of course. She seems to possess knowledge of some mystical beings in the area that dwell in a mine and she uses one of her students, who happens to be a "channeler" to help her locate the creatures' dwelling.

The story is okay but the dialogue is terrible. The writers throw your typical country jokes that fall flat because we've heard every redneck rhubarb 100 times before--and all delivered much better. The one-liners issued by sassy tramp Cindy Brooks are so telegraphed they fail to elicit a response from the viewer beyond an eye roll. This movie is essentially only for low-budget horror enthusiasts who are fans of the B-Rate stars.

STORY: $$ (The story, although on paper looks good, didn't translate well to a script. The characterization was lacking in our characters as Pam's motives weren't well thought out and Dan Haggerty's survivalist/chemist seemed out of place and entirely unnecessary. More should have been done, but this was clearly made by amateurs).

ACTING: $$ (The acting is quite weak from almost everyone involved. B-Rate star Jay Richardson (SINS OF DESIRE) does a fine job and Grizzly Adams lookalike Dan Haggerty plays himself as usual. Cindy Brooks was annoying as the slutty girl and Oliver Darrow (SPIRITS) has little to do as the bad boy. Brenda James (SLITHER), credited as Brenda Klemme in this film, seems the only thespian among the students that was well cast. She shines in her bookish, studious role and gives the film's best performance--but that isn't saying too much).

NUDITY: $ (There is a pointless shower scene in the wilderness at Haggerty's cabin showing an obvious body double standing in for Cindy Brooks).
