THE PLOT:

Seven teenagers head for an isolated cabin in the woods during spring break for some fun in the sun. But they don't know that they are being stocked by a strange frog creature from another world. Sounds like the plot of a horror movie, that's what Mike a member of the teens feel and no matter how much the others try to convince him that there's nothing out there the more he think that they are insane and when they start disappearing one by one the more he's convinced that there is someone or something out in those woods out to due them harm.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Scream talked about the rules if you are going to survive a horror movie. Well there's nothing out there is the pretext to that and have other rules of surviving a horror movie in the woods which includes no skinny dipping. I love the Mike character, reminds me allot of me. He is the best written character in this whole movie. The others are good too but he has to be my favorite. The brilliant writing and subtext. The acting is better then some serious horror movies and the effects are incredible. This has got to be the best movie that you never heard of. All and all a great movie worth watching over and over again. 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

Aliens from another planet who have come to kill our men and rape our women. Who are tiny and slimy must die a horrible painful death. That's just my opinion. I agree with Zedd but my only real complaint about is I wish we learned more about the creature itself, the hypno powers show that he's intelligent, so was he sent he or did he escape or something? I give it 8 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CREATURE EFFECTS (The creature effects are pretty cool.)
+ RULES (Rules other then in SCREAM about surviving a horror movie in the woods.)
+ CHARACTERS (All the characters were well written.)
+ STORY (The story works.)
+ DARK HUMOR (The humor is dark, but funny.)
+ ACTING (Better then some more serious horror movies.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- MORE (I wish they had more on the alien.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't into monsters in the woods style movies, then this may not be for you.)
