Although movie is cheesy, it's fun
21 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

Call me crazy, but I actually loved this film. It was clearly a rip-off of Evil Dead 2 and other such horror films, but it didn't take itself seriously, and it followed the general Troma Films basic movie formula by trying to be a little bit scary while funny. The film has bad acting, but it acknowledges that it will be bad, and takes advantage of it. It also has purposefully bad special effects. Personal favorite scenes of mine are the witch attack in the cabin, the Wendigo itself, and the fact that one of the main stars looks just like my best friend's dad. This film's music soundtrack is crazy, featuring songs that sometimes have nothing to do with what is shown on screen. Overall, I think that for fans of bad horror movies, this one not only is bad, but it also sends up bad horror films, so it is worth a look and kind of an unknown gem.
