Great acting, great photography, lousy script.

"Every great movie starts with a great script. And every bad movie starts with a bad script. This film began with a bad script. Its grave was dug early on. You gotta give the actors props for doing their best with a lousy script. And let me just say-Suzanne Davis is extremely sexy in this movie, yet got over as the "virgin" really nicely. They did have some minimal star power in Stacy Keach ("American History X"), Dan Lauria ("The Wonder Years") and Billy Dee Williams. Though this film has a lot to say on the box about Billy Dee Williams, he's really not there that long. So the actors I give credit for.
I also have to give the photographer credit for a well-photographed movie. There are some stunning shots of Colorado or wherever this is. But unfortunately, we can't look at it as an IMAX film. The rating is for gory violence, implied sexuality (no nudity) and the obligatory language. If you've seen all the other movies in the horror section, you just might want to pick this up."

"The unwary may be drawn to this piece of cinematic dreck by the presence of two actors of talent-Stacy Keach and Billy Dee Williams .They should take note that neither has much more than a cameo role and the bulk of the action is dominated by a youthful cast of spectacular ineptitude.
It is at bottom a conventional teens in peril tale with the group in question being menaced by sasquatch while on a field trip .Or are thay ?A framing device suggests it may all be taking place in the mind of the central character Carrie who may or may not be possessed of a vivid imagination and severe sexual repression
Confused and confusing with frenetic camera movement substituting for directorial imagination.
