12.14.06Terror Thursday A bunch of doctors go on a fishing trip and get harassed and eventually killed by a mysterious WWII vet mountain man and his blind brother. Of course you don't find out who they are till the last five minutes so I ruined it for you. It's ok though because this movie absolutely stops about halfway through. The first half is your standard survival horror fare with the cityfolk complaining about woodsy things then freaking out when the mountain man starts messing with them... but then the last 45 minutes turn into this really slow endurance-fest that's basically Hal Holbrook and the movie's producer bickering at each other. I think most of the theater fell asleep for the second half of this movie, which is kind of a shame because the very very end has a fairly harsh live-burning which is worth watching to hear the stuff the producer yells before he gets it.

I remember seeing this movie a long time ago and as far as I know my feelings on the movie remain the same: it's not bad but gets pretty slow and really really dark. The whole end sequence takes place in a dark cabin and you can barely see what's going on. get a lantern up in there!
