Hunted like an animal. Naked prey. Let me assure you, that is the good part of the movie, which was initially off to a precarious start, but Danielle De Luca came in and instantly turned it around whenever she was on the screen. Cute and with spark. The rest of the cast, well, early on I liked the Sheriff, but, okay, the lot couldn't carry a ten minute commercial.
What a total letdown. At one stage, Our Heroine was doing applause-worthy well fighting back. Then, as she flees through the woods, she bumped into a hunter, and from that point onward, the movie became total total total junk. There was no point in having this victim rescued by an outside group. Perceived as just like the dumb, hapless animals as "worthless", she, naïve and vulnerable, had to conquer her foe alone, she had to overcome her fear and stand up for herself. THIS WAS DONE, but then, it really looks AS IF THE PROJECT WAS TAKEN OVER BY A SECOND TEAM and movie becomes a dumb gore-fest (badly done, I mean, gore fans wouldn't sit up - from their coffins - and notice).
The stretch of the movie that is the NAKED FEAR is quite well filmed. It is exactly as the other reviewers here say it is, I would just add that the juxtapositioning of the beauty of New Mexico makes it hell in paradise.
This particular movie, that last two reels of film really needs to be thrown away, and remade from there. Danielle gave a stellar performance, but it's really all for naught with this shambles of a letdown.
That knife. The older boy goes into the pup tent with the knife. Why? And why would he leave it lying next to Diana? Besides facilitating the corny set-up, I mean.
A near success, snatched from the jaws of victory.
For how it should be done (albeit with less explicit nudity): Australian movie FAIR GAME, with Cassandra Delaney, one of The Raven's favorites.
My score for the movie takes into account that Danielle De Luca is a must-see. Wow. All natural, long limbs, no tattoos, and suntan-free. Double wow.
