Low budget filmmaker, Jayson has made the movie of his dreams... but to his dismay, it can't sell in Hollywood. The distributors tell him "... you have nothing exploitative in your movie. Add some sex scenes, more violence, and maybe we'll buy your film." The distraught filmmaker approaches his neophyte, semi-psychotic producer, Bravo and tells him, "... put together a cast and crew... we're going to re-shoot and give them what they want!" Bravo nervously tells him, "We're out of money. " Jayson screams at him, "I don't care. Do whatever you have to do!" Bravo enlists a young movie crew to follow them into the remote back woods of the Great Bear Mountains by telling them "There's no money, but when we sell this, you'll all get a big piece of the profits for your efforts... and great craft service!"

Glenn Plummer has never been an A-grade actor though he has been in some pretty good movies in his career. This unfortunately doesn't fall into that category. Mr. Plummer must be broke to allow himself to be associated with a film of this calibre.

I really can't stress enough how terrible a movie this is. A terrible script executed terribly by actors who seem to have been stopped on the street and asked if they'd like to star in a monster movie. And speaking of the monster; Imagine fifties B-movies if you will. Now imagine a particularly bad one. That's what you get with this movie. Throw badly shot and badly directed into the mix and you get something I would call a C-movie. So poor as to be impossible to enjoy.

Yes, I know thirty grand is nothing for a movie budget but I'm sure that more skilled film makers could have conjured up something better with that money.

Whoever it was that rated this movie as a 10 must have either been involved in the making of it or having a laugh.

I am as capable of enjoying B-movies as the next person. Some are even favourite films. But I couldn't in good conscience recommend this movie to anyone. This movie is a must miss.
