- Starring: Jill Wagner, Paulo Costanzo, Shea Whigham
- Summary: A young couple retreats to the wilderness for a romantic camping weekend, but their idyll is shattered when they are car-jacked by an escaped convict and his girlfriend on the run from the police. As the foursome travel the back roads together, each plotting their next move, they find themselves in deeper trouble than any of them could have imagined -- a blood-crazed, parasitic creature that absorbs the corpses of its victims has laid claim to the woods, and the two couples are now in its sights. Finding shelter at an abandoned gas station, they must use their wits and every weapon at their disposal to stave off the onslaught, not only from the insatiable creature, but also each other.

I don't understand, with the plethora of cheesy, bad acted, horribly directed horror films that have come out recently, why films such as this do not get their deserved respect. Many complaints I have heard about this movie are pretty petty, considering the achievements the director and actors have made, with an obviously lower than blockbuster budget. I am a die-hard fan of old horror and sci-fi, and miss the days when directors could set a mood, a feeling of dread, without resorting to jump in your face scare tactics and relying on special effects to compensate for a sub-par plot and acting. Although this movie DOES have some jump in your face moments, and has the monster on display, quite a bit in my opinion, it also leaves much to the imagination, which can be a lot creepier in my opinion. It doesn't upset me at all that the monster is not just thrust in your face the entire movie. This director, and actors both did an excellent job of building their characters, and making me care for them, unlike so many other horror flicks. Give credit where credit is due, and learn to appreciate these little gems, when they do pop up. Definitely worth a watch if you're into a good horror flick, with surprisingly good acting to boot!… Expand
ChrisK7Pretty Decent Scary Movie, Not a bit cheezy and very original. Don't pass us this non mainstream movie.
MikeS4Ok, this is good, very good in almost all respects, and yes effects are very good- even groundbreaking. But, uh, was Hershey's one of the main investors of this film? And are we all supposed to ignore the fact that this "blood" that they used was obviously chocolate syrup? It seems they did use some coloring in the syrup on the gas station window, but most of it was just plain chocolate. I get it, ok, it's a nod to the masters of horror, bach when they used black and white film, and it worked very good on B&W, but color film- it just doesn't work and it ruins the effect. Come on, am I the only one who is going to say anything about the brown blood?… Expand
