Synopsis by Cavett Binion

This amateurish backwoods horror opus finds a quartet of annoying California campers embarking on an idyllic mountain getaway, only to be terrorized by a cave-dwelling cannibal cracker (Michael Brody) who, it turns out, is himself plagued by the ghosts of his murdered wife and children (as revealed in flashback). Undoubtedly disgusted by Daddy's unpleasant eating habits, the ghosts conspire to end the killer redneck's reign of terror before he murders again. Viewers will probably find themselves wishing the same upon the filmmakers. A lifeless hodgepodge of Deliverance, The Hills Have Eyes and Friday the 13th, this cheap direct-to-video project waffles between horror and black comedy, failing completely on both counts.
