A bunch of college students head out into the Everglades to look for something. Instead they find something else. People die and some other stuff happens.

It was a pretty decent B-movie up until the roller coaster derailing ending. There were naked breasts. Very good. There was blood, although not a lot. There was a thing stalking the party in the woods. But all the condiments in the world do not add up to a B-movie burger if the ending stinks.


There should never be a level of understanding between the monster and its victims. "Yes, yes. I understand. I was wrong all along. Thank you for killing me." Apparently the filmmakers couldn't afford to mess up the monster's rubber costume. It was a rental and had to be back by next Thursday. Stop making nice with monsters! They are there to be killed, not to be put on a pedestal as a swamp guardian. First I fear the swamp species, now I sympathize with their plight? Coaster going off the tracks! B-movie fatality.

SCORE: 1.5 out of 4 deadly rubber beasts
