Did You Know?


Originally, in the scene in which Zack tries to cut in line for the bathroom, he is stopped and asked, "Who the f** do you think you are... Tony Danza?" When the movie was released in France, the name "Tony Danza" in that line was changed to "John Travolta" for the French dubbed soundtrack. See more »


In the "desolate" campground, at various times you can clearly see car lights passing. Noticed first while Rachel is searching for Zack but it is throughout the movie in many scenes. See more »

not impressed
27 February 2008 | by andcomewhatmaySee all my reviews

It feels like I've seen this movie a dozen times.....that's because it's another rip off of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. A bunch of kids go out in the middle of nowhere and get killed off. The only real positive feedback I can give is the death scenes are pretty good especially for it being low budget. It has decent level of gore, but nothing spectacular; movies like House of 1,000 Corpses has it beat. Not only has this been done to death, the acting in this movie is really really bad. The characters themselves are far from believable, they're morons. The plot is predictable from start to finish and not scary in the least. Unless you can't get enough of this particular sub-genre of horror, it's not worth it.
