Slimeball Chris (Desmond Harrington) has to get to a job interview on time, & since the highway is blocked, takes a backwoods dirtroad detour, where he soon crashes into the SUV of a quintet of young campers who were stopped on this road by some barbed wire deliberately placed to blow up tires of people like them. & while he joins Jessie (Eliza Dushku), Scott (Jeremy Sisto), & Carly (Emmanuelle Chriqui) to look for help, a couple stays back for sex & drugs & of course getting slashed. Chris & company meanwhile find a dead end & a shed littered with trash, having them repeatedly mention how spooky it is - which it clearly is not (horror directors & especially Rob Schmidt please note: spooky atmosphere is not created by characters saying "boo, spooky", there's a little more to the craft), until of course they find some bodyparts (what a subtle approach). But when they do so, the owners of the hut are already coming back & our kids have to hide, suddenly being confronted with the corpses of their 2 friends, and the fact the owners of the hut are genetically deformed (now they can't be good people, can they ?). However they manage to escape the hut, with the baddies in hot pursuit & Scott gives his life saving the others, & they find refuge in a watchtower. But the baddies are not too stupid either & burn down the darned thing, forcing our kids to escape via the trees, & Carly giving her life, too. As the escape goes on, the baddies even abduct Jessie, who is in the end of course saved by Chris with skills as if he had spent his lifetime with the marines. Together they now slaughter all the deformed baddies, reestablishing the Darwinian order with the WASP kids as superior beings - an ending that makes you want to throw up !


Someone has clearly seen Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills have Eyes & Deliverance (which is even mentioned in the film's dialogue) way too often, & steals quite freely from these movies, but without showing the slightest understanding of them, instead making a terrible teenie-popcorn-slasher with macho-mentality & even racist undertones, filmed without the even a glimpse of feeling for creating an atmosphere - most of the movies images look like sun-flooded picture postcards -, relying on the run of the mill gore effects & the rather mediocre make up jobs for the deformed baddies to turn the movie into a horror-film. That of course is not enough. The whole thing of course is also not helped in the slightest by making - as opposed to other slashers, who at least have a female lead - slimeball Desmond Harrington the central character, who is devoid of any charisma & can't act worth shit - actually exactly the character you'd wish to be killed off in the first reel.

Don't watch it !

Ah yeah, & to not break with that sickening teen-slasher-tradition to always cast someone from a popular teen-tv-show, this movie so-stars Eliza Dushku, who played someone on the then popular Buffy the Vampire Slayer-teen-tv-show (from season 3 onwards).
