Cult horror director William Fruet (Death Weekend, Spasms) teams with My Bloody Valentine screenwriter John Bearid for this backwoods shocker about a group of backpackers who do battle with a psychotic hillbilly. Four young university students are out camping in the woods when they witness an enraged Henry Chatwell (Henry Silva) stalking, torturing, and killing his wife's lover. With no means of calling the local sheriff, the students retreat back to their campsite. There, Henry takes them captive and declares they all must die. Realizing that old Henry has finally gone too far, two locals attempt to release the students, who are promptly recaptured by their crazed abductor. Later, desperate student Roger (Nicholas Campbell) acquires an axe and attempts to save his friends from certain death.
