The pothead Zack; the sweethearts Kate and Riff; the slut Vicky; and the spoiled Ashley travel by van to the backwoods to camp. They meet two strange gravediggers that advise them to leave the place otherwise they could be murdered. Then they meet the deranged retarded Simon in the gas station and Riff has a friction with the guy. They find a paradisiac spot to camp at the riverside, but Simon and Stanley transform their holiday in a nightmarish night.Written by

"No dogs were stomped, thrown, or run over by cars (twice), during the making of this motion picture." (Ironically, almost immediately below that text is this: "In Loving Memory of Tofu". Tofu was the dog that played Reggie B in the movie.) See more »
The story of "Simon says" is nothing new. Some teenagers in the wood get hunted down by some sicko. So, I didn't expect much anyway in that regard. Still, the movie disappointed me. The teenagers are just your basic clichés for this kind of movie, which is not necessarily bad, but the main problem is the main character, Simon. In my opinion he's just way overdone. The acting is almost like a caricature. So, what should be a threatening character ends up being a (sadly bad) joke. The kills are good, but that's about it. Everything else in this movie just is below par, even for the genre.
Still, with a better Simon this movie could be fun. With that guy it's more a pain to watch than anything else. Avoid this movie.
