Five campers arrive in the mountains to examine some property they have bought, but are warned by the forest ranger Roy McLean that a huge machete-wielding maniac has been terrorising the area. Ignoring the warnings, they set up camp, and start disappearing one by one. If that sounds too run-of-the-mill, there’s a genuinely shocking plot twist half-way through…
Wasn’t really expecting the punch this low budget slasher gave as it was they first time I had checked the film out after numerous attempts by one friend who shallr main anonymous haha.
The one thing you take away from all the camp slashing and scene splicing (you’ll see it when one second she’s at the bonfire and next second the guy is sat beside her) is the creep-tastic score. God it’s one of those show, brooding scores that builds up to something crazy.
The make-up effects as well were well done for being a bad print on the DVD I have (thin green lines every so often) so I’ll be looking for better print or if there’s a ‘remastered’ version floating about.
Screaming kids in a backwoods atmosphere is never nice and this just seeps and before you think something is abut to happen then BAM – something else does. Think Friday 13th or the weirdness of Black Christmas to truly appreciated this small gem of a film.
