"A boy, Pete, is very close to his grandfather (Dennis Weaver). While Pete and his parents are visiting the old timer that has seen many good and bad times in years past, Pete hears some news that he didn't want to hear. To get away from the harsh reality of the bad news that life just threw them, Pete and his grandpa take a trip to the mountainous woods in order to spend some time quality time together. Never did they expect something bad to happen which would cause them to get lost in the upbeat wilderness that never rests.To say the least, "Escape From Wildcat Canyon" is full of adventure once the two get lost. They'll have to deal with hungry wolves, frightening heights, fast flowing rivers that can chill you to the bone (not to mention that it's the cold season), and much more. It'll not only take teamwork, but a lot of luck will also come in handy for them to get through this expedition alive.Granted, "Escape From Wildcat Canyon" doesn't have the best acting that anybody's ever seen (Dennis Weaver, the Grandpa, is great though), and it may be a little cliched, but it's still a good movie, especially for all you adventure fans out there. There's also a lot of nice scenery to take in while watching the film. So, regardless of the fact that you've probably never even heard of this movie (I hadn't till tonight), give it a shot by watching it on TV, or better yet, buy the movie. It's worth it."
