Their best friend Dana (Kyrie Ellison) has gone missing in Sasquatch
country, so Sylvia (Anna Shields) and Jamie (Grant Schumacher) try to
trace her last steps and happen upon Alex (Rachel Finninger), a girl who
has hitched a ride with her deep into the woods via Craigslist. And seeing
Alex is trying to hitch a ride again, the two figure to offer their
services - and thus Sylvia ends up being Alex's driver, and though she
finds the occasional thing off with her, she also really falls for her,
and vice versa, and the two soon start having sex. And when Sylvia has
dropped Alex off at her destination, her house deep in the woods, she
decides to stick around for a while. Thing is, her cellphone has no
signal, so she can't tell Jamie ...
Worried sick about not hearing from
Sylvia, Jamie drives after her, and while he always suspected Sasquatch
action in that region - much to Sylvia's ridicule - he's more than
surprised running into the real deal (Dylan Grunn) ...
several things odd about Alex's house, including a subliminal sound
constantly transmitted to the outside, and eventually Alex confesses that
there is someone or something - as in Sasquatch - out there, and the sound
is what keeps it away, so as long as Sylvia stays within clearly marked
perimeters, she's fine. Sylvia's happy with that, after all she's very
fond of Alex and feels safe with her - that is, until she finds finds a
door to a secret basement that holds some of Alex's darkest secrets ...
is a really fine piece of Sasquatch cinema, especially
because it doesn't got the usual monster movie route but is instead
completely character driven, and allows its characters to be flawed and
make wrong decisions, get into awkward situations while doing a great job
of gradually increasing the tension and at the same time keeping
everything shrouded in mystery until the finale. And a small but dedicated
cast really help bringing this to life and making it a fun genre watch.
