Storyline

Is it a legend, or a myth??? The one question has plagued mankind throughout the ages has always remained, but finally comes to unfold here in a new chilling Thriller. The Native American Indians thought it was fact... they respected, feared it and Believed to be a GOD. Ten Years ago, there was a "Ghost-like something" seen killing people in the dark unforgiving woods as people were culled away one by one and some never to be found. What really happened? This year reports have surfaced that it was all just a "Hoax"... But a local philanthropist believes different and puts a $2.5 Million Dollar Bounty on this "Beast" in the woods and a team of expert hunters go out looking for the "Silent Killer." But now years later it was never to be found and they dismissed it as an unsolved mystery! When BARBARA SANDERS and her free spirited college friends venture off into the deep woods of the Northeastern Valley Mountains to look for this so called legend and for a weekend retreat, their camping...

Brains can conquer a lack of budget after all.

What a great movie. It had all the elements of a Horror/thriller movie

The characters journey was perfect in every way. The mood and feel changes were riveting. The action and suspense was surprising and awe inspiring at the same time. The scene where the bounty hunters first encountered the military men was simply well crafted, how the military men shot one of the bounty hunters leg that led to a slight rivalry that went through the movie, although one might say the slow motions in the movie were a tad too much but it as well brings out a certain beauty in some scenes, one in particular was when big foot was shot by two hunters, the slow motion there truly captured the essence there

And the conclusion! The underlying themes were brought together in the most masterful way I've seen in a while in horror movies.

i would highly recommend this movie to anyone who hasn't seen it yet...
