This movie surprised me. I was expecting your typical monster in the woods picking off the campers, with the bonus of Jake Busey, but that was not what I got. I love original monsters like this! Here you have a couple on their two year anniversary on a romantic camping weekend before he goes on a six month band tour. She's pregnant and hasn't told him, and every time she tries to talk to him about anything serious, he calls her a buzz kill. Further murdering their weekend, Jake Busey and his hick hunting buddies, and weird calls in the trees. And cue the monster. Jake Busey's character finds shelter in their tent...and continues to be a jerk but he does have an idea what's after them, thanks to his crazy Aunt Millie's tall tales, and for some reason, the monster is not going after the tent itself. It seems more intent on keeping them in it. While the ending didn't completely surprise me (I'm tough to surprise), it wasn't the predictable conclusion to these types of films, and I really liked the make-up effects on the creature. No CGI, just good prosthetic work.
