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.
ACID TES: would I buy/watch it again or recommend? NO
Film ok but spoilt by poor film transfer.
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.

Was not happy cover art was different from what your advertising you should get what you pay for and what you see.. not happy at all.Published 14 months ago by Paul
Another very poor quality VHS transfer. It's not that difficult to enhance the picture quality these days. Very lazy.Published 16 months ago by Michael Kelly

Don't waste your money on this DVD. The picture quality is appalling. Save up for the US release instead. Read morePublished on 7 Dec. 2013 by Raggytramp
