Some creature, maybe the Sasquatch, maybe the Missing link, is roaming the woods around Oil City, Louisiana, eventually killing some lifestock or even a few people, too. It should be regarded as a good thing then that 2 college students, Rives (John David Carson) & Pahoo (Dennis Fimple) are coming to Oil City to study the phenomenon, maybe even hunt down the creature ... well, should be ...

The Oil City locals live in denial of the creature & are rather sceptic about these 2 city slickers from Chicago who ask all the wrong questions, & refuse to answer them, the sheriff (Bill Thurman) even tells them to leave ... but then, when sleeping in a barn, our 2 heroes are almost attacked by the creature ... sucdess at last (or is it ?). & what's more, they even pick uop 2 local broads the next day, Michelle (Michelle Willingham) & Becky (Becky Smiser), the sheriff's daughter ... which promptly lands them in the slammer the next night.

But in prison they do meet trapper Joe Canton (Jack Elam), whose trapper-pal was actually killed by the creature before his very eyes, & once out, he gives them good pointers as to where to find the creature.

Once they have put up camp though, Rives & Pahoo have a fight though, & Pahoo even wants to leave, bacause of some rather nasty memories fromm the 'Nam he doesn't want to have repeated ... but ultimately they talk it over & decide to go on the creature hunt together after all ... & make a very poor job of it, as soon the creature has no problems mauling Pahoo then he goes after Rives & pretty much tears the campervan Rives its hiding in apart (it eventually blows up, with Rives no longer inside). Rives does manage to get away, but escaping he manages to stab & almost kill Pahoo & the only good thing about it is that from now on the sheriff believes the boys.

And then ... the end ... what ?


Totally unremarkable creature feature that moves along way too slowly, features 2 very bland lead characters who make it difficult to identify with, seriously lacks in tension or suspense, & the ending, that pretty much doesn't resolve anything, is almost an insult ... but worst of all, the film is pretty boring, too.
