Mostly filmed around Crescent City, California, during the February each of two sequential years. That time frame and location were selected for the expected drizzle and overcast weather conditions. However, filming commenced near the start of a multi-year California drought and the production had to work around weeks of blue skies by using fog machines and hanging large drapes to block out the sun. It did finally rain a little the first year-- the last day of filming. See more »
Good creature feature for the gore hounds
I'm not going to pretend this movie was exactly original, the formula has been done over and over for decades at this point. A couple finds themselves stranded and hunted by a dangerous predator, but there was a twist that's not normally seen in a creature feature like this. It's sort of a mash up of "Predator" meets Big Foot meets Native American folk lore.
The plot synopsis is exactly what you get in this movie, so there's no real point in going in to too much detail. A couple gets stranded in the woods, there's some dealings with weird redneck locals, and a monster. That's the movie. As others have stated, the acting isn't really all that great either.
Now why did I rate it a 6? Because it has some really good special effects gore. No CGI, real old fashioned special effects, which is always nice to see. Also I like the twist on the monster, it's not just a mindless beast, but a cunning, plotting, and motivated by pure hate and evil. Also the leading actress is really attractive so that's a plus, no nudity though.
If you're looking for a gore filled creature feature then this is for you.
