I didn't know this film existed until two weeks ago and there's good reason for it. Filmed in , on the same sets as 'Friday the th Part : D', the film was shelved for five years before being leaked out on video at a time when videos had become available to almost everyone, and the sheer novelty value meant someone was bound to rent this turd!

The film's main flaw is that we have to fill in too many blanks ourselves. The first thing that struck me as being odd was when the main character (you know it's bad when you look for a cast and character list on the IMDB and even they don't know) woke up and found an invite to a summer camp next to her bed. I thought she would freak out as someone must have sneaked into her room in the night and left the invite, but judging by the smile on her face she had obviously received it by post weeks previously and had merely kept it at her bedside to look at each morning. (see what I mean?)

Anyway, there's some kids (average age ) who used to be friends returning to the summer camp (where the main girl's brother was burned alive two years previously) for fun.

Once they get there a scary Indian man locks them in and then leaps out at them every five minutes shouting 'Get out of here', whilst pinning them to the floor and shoving his shotgun into the back of their necks. Although I suppose I can't say he copied 'Friday the th' loony, Crazy Ralph.

So, the kids split up to do assorted things like have picnics, mass nude orgies in the sauna, make vodka punch, hunt buffalo with crossbow, steal kittens and get lost in the woods, which is a bad idea as the main girl's burnt brother has turned into a hairy burnt creature, thanks to a curse that the scary Indian's ancestors left on the land.

Oh, and I think the main girl has something to do with it but i'm not sure as I fell asleep-thank God!!

OVERALL SUMMARY
Utter crap, no signs of a coherent story whatsoever. Soft porn, crap dialogue such as 'I'll be back soon, I'm just away to the barn to steal a kitten' to which her friend replies 'oh, ok just don't be long', does not make a good horror film. Pathetic.
