I passed this film at the rack at the video store countless times and never bothered to rent it, but I finally decided to check it out. I knew it was going to be bad, but I didn't expect it to be this bad. The beginning was decent, but then it started to get hilariously bad. As I said, the beginning is cool, because we pretty much just see the crazy man kill countless innocent campers in the woods various ways. Some of the deaths were decent and I liked how a lot of people died fast. I thought the movie wouldn't actually be too bad judging by all the deaths in the beginning, but it didn't take long before it fell apart.

The movie starts to go south when they finally focus the story on four campers. The crazy man hunts them down and finds that for some reason they are a lot harder to kill than his previous victims. What's really bad about this movie has to be the many plot-holes and the incredibly crappy acting, which I found unintentionally funny. Another negative about this movie has to be the horrible script -- the dialogue some of the campers had was just plain stupid.

The acting, plus the bad dialogue, makes a very unbelievable and unintentionally hilarious movie. If the film kept at the pace it was in the beginning it would have at least been watchable. I would have given it a lower-rating, but it was decent in the beginning and I liked a few of the deaths. Other than that, it was a waste.

A very bad slasher film. Has some really crappy dialogue and acting. Not bad in the beginning, but started to get really stupid as time went on. Don't rent this unless you're desperate.
