You remember those times when you had nothing to do and you switch on cable and then there’s some movie playing on TV - a bunch of people being hunted by a giant animal. Intrigued, and with nothing better to do, you continue watching and spend a good one hour doing that. Then you switch it off saying “God! What a waste of time.”
Well, this is that kind of movie and I’m sure you would be a lot more annoyed when you have rented the DVD for 4 bucks. Before you do that, reading this might help.
There’s this group of people who are on an expedition. First you have to have your geeky scientist guys - there are two of those. Then, four park rangers - to help with the trail and all - basically, they will die first. Then, you have your main guy - all handsome and quiet with secret demons haunting him. Then, you have your busty eye candy. C’mon! You think they would make a movie without that?! Who would do all the screaming and whining then?
Anyway, these people are on a mission. They have a hunch that some ancient, prehistoric blah blah animal they thought existed only in Asia also lived elsewhere. They need some evidence to prove their hunch. So they set off on this trip to hell. On the fourth morning, they get up and realize that they had set camp in an ancient graveyard. Obviously, there was something that took offence to this - a Sasquatch. It attacks them and they run for dear life - back towards civilization. But the question is how many of them see a burger again?
This is one of your typical cable movies. There have been a hundred like it and there will be a hundred more like it. There is not a shred of originality in the entire film. The director Fred Tepper has not tried to make an award winning flick. He is far less ambitious than that. This is your average run of the mill scream teen flick. Very little story with some eye candy. It is marked with stereotypes - hey, at least they are not partial only to good looking bimbos and studs - there are scientists shown too… too bad they get eaten by a giant Sasquatch…
So all in all, seeing this film is one option when your other options include cleaning your room, studying for tests a week in advance, or when your mom wants to watch something.
