Product Description

Product Description

Two campers Sharon and Teddy are terrorized in the deep dark woods of the California wilderness by a cannibalistic knife-wielding madman. Teddy is killed but Sharon manages to escape. That same night their boyfriends, Steve and Charlie, take refuge in an old cave to protect themselves from the storm. There they meet the killer an old man wearing a beat up old baseball cap named John. He tells them the story of how he walked in on his unfaithful wife and her lover. He killed them both, and gathered his two children and ran off into the forest. Unfortunately, his kids got sick and they committed suicide. Since then, he has developed a taste for human flesh and will kill anybody who trespasses on his territory. The next morning, Charlie is drowned and prepared for the killer's breakfast. He then goes looking for Sharon, who has, unbeknownst to him, teamed up with the ghosts of his two dead children. The maniac chases Sharon but just as he's about to kill her his ghost kids save her...

no spoilers - no point - a visually impaired person could have seen it coming.

Weak. Very weak. A bunch of 20 somethings agree to a re-union after 4 years of the 5 or 6 of them to go to the place where the twin brother of one of them was killed, so that they can all get closure. Actually I don't think I really need to say much more than that. you've probably guessed it al ready. The only other things to know are: They can't get a mobil phone signal (yawn) There's COOL struck off doctor chick who's already there. This is masterson. passed her prime. not as good an actress as she thinks she is. Nowhere near capable of carrying the film looks as out of place on a bike as the road bike itself in the woods. (zzzzzz)
Apparently she had a son who died 6 years ago. she flits in an out with shades and various tops on. the 'gang' have set speeches they did as school essays on 'What would a clichéd character say that sums up their back story in less than 100 words?' Unfortunately they just delivered them without first checking to see if they made sense in context with each other.
Not much bad language. not much actual violence. only one nude scene ( so rubbish so blatantly shoehorned in they should be ashamed), rubbish predictable story. Not escapist enough to suspend belief and not realistic enough to be engaging. all in all PAP. Pap with NO redeeming features.

Somebody called Chase Masterson was the co executive guest vice producer. Or whatever title they use these days. I don't know how ell healed this person is but if I were putting my name on a project (other than in just the talent role) I'd like to think I'd've picked a better project than this and made sure it wasn't just another faceless mish mash. Pick a genre. keep it simple. and do it well.

Even though this is a VHS copy,this film contains all of the bits that were not in the VHS version of this film. Even though it has no known actors,it is still a good enough mild horror film,slightly different from the teenage slasher films that are widely available these days.I had the old VHS film,now retired(like the remaining VHS films that I have!) and am now looking through them to see if they are available on DVD. Another excellent sale and delivery! Thanks to all at Amazon UK!

Terrible dvd picture copy, poor sound, no menu screen & as other reviews have said (should have listened) the picture on the dvd cover does not match what I received.
Film ok but spoilt by poor film transfer.

This is not as good as I hoped for when I originally bought it but its still an enjoyable 80s romp in the forest if this genre is your type of thing, (I am basing my review on the import uncut version) im not sure if the person in the review above is talking about the same film because it does not involve lizard costumes at all and is not available in the uk, the movie is about 2 couples who go to the forest on a camping trip and end up getting stalked and killed off by a madman living in a cave, the movie has a strange supernatural twist which wasn't really needed, I wouldn't call this a slasher as such, there are a few death scenes but nothing major league, some blood and cheesy dying, its just a straight up standard horror, fans of the 80s will like it, it has a great score playing over it which adds a bit of an atmosphere and cool locations, its not the best of the 80s but still rare to find and worth picking up cheap for cheap thrills.

This is a bad movie. I would have given it 1 star but and loath to as it is low budget and to knock off stars seems a bit harsh.

The plot involves bad acting a actor is a lizard costume killing a bunch of friends. Throw in a dodgy doctor and some silly plot twists and you get a duff film.
I spent £1 on this in W H Smiths thinking it can't be that bad (it was).
You can't judge a film by the cover, the cover is great.

There are a few well known faces in this movie and the marketing is quite well placed. It seems like a solid (if unoriginal) plot and at the time I purchased this DVD there were no really bad reviews. However, the production is so amateurish,the dialogue so strained and the acting so wooden that this film does not even merit the price of the postage. We could not even watch this movie all the way through. I am only writing this review because I rely quite a lot on customer reviews and the absence of ones for this film lead to a very poor purchase on my part. I think that there are a number of films available on Amazon with a similar plot which are considerably more watchable and I would recommend you consider these first.
