Party girls Annie (Jennifer Blanc) and Mary (Danielle Harris) find themselves in a life and death situation. Annie's life is put in jeopardy when she witnesses the rape and murder of her closest friend at the hands of two sheriff's deputies (Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood). With her pursuers closing in, she stumbles across Kyle (Biehn), a recluse living in the middle of the woods. A rugged loner, Kyle finds the stillness of the woods comforting. He keeps civilization far away until a single knock on his door throws his solitary life into turmoil.
This tawdry film attempts to emulate the grindhouse, exploitation flicks that used to flourish in pre-Disneyfied, 1970's Times Square movie houses. Rated R, it is extremely violent and tough to watch. Rape, murder, gunplay, assorted psychopaths, crooked cops, adult language, and cliches built on cliches abound. Bonus extras on the Blu-ray release include audio commentary with Michael Biehn and a making-of featurette.
These "said" "reviewers" went to the Scare Fest were the screening of this movie premiered and were told once they left they should go on the forums and "give their honest opinion". Some of these fans were even invited to be on the set of the movie while it was being filmed. Thus, how in the hell do you expect a bunch of biased zealots to 'GIVE AN HONEST OPINION'??
"Capes".. you really should stop. The film will sell itself. Seriously. Some of us, will get so disgusted at such fraudulent tactics to the point where we probably don't want see the damn film. Thanks to you.
I did rent the movie found that it was half decent. I did find the reviews from "real people" very helpful. Thus, i knew what to expect from this movie.
I will say the driving scenes last between 4-5 mins each. the ones with flashbacks even longer.
The sex? why? Robert Rodriguez made his directorial debut w/$7,000 "El Mariachi"? and he never really included multiple, tawdry sex scenes. I don't know if this movie was targeted for the less than intelligent movie-goer, or just a bunch of horny people that want to see amateur porn.
And another thing! Where the hell did the sex scene b/t Mike/Jennifer come from? Did this chick get turned on by looking at her friend's bracelet? or just getting yelled at by Kyle? It didn't fit in the screenplay, if it did? it could have come much later - or after she took a shower, for gawd's sake.Read more ›
I have been a Michael Biehn fan ever since I saw him in the early 80's slasher 'The Fan' with Lauren Bacall.He was gorgeous then and is still sexy at 54.
Danielle Harris is a joy to watch as is Jennifer Blanc although as a Horror fan I have a special place in my heart for Danielle. Even though Mary, Danielle's character is killed off in the beginning of the film we see her in flash backs as Annie "Blanc"is reflecting on their friendship and she is really sexy in her little stripper outfits,you guys should love that,seeing as Biehn and Blanc are married in real life the sex scene was pretty hot and realistic.
It wasn't a slasher or a gore fest but a physiological thriller, mystery of sorts. I liked it even without the element of no gore because the characters and story carried the film and kept me glued to the TV.I hesitated watching because I thought it would be mundane and predictable but it was neither.
Bravo to Biehn for his directing and acting..
The production moves into the abduction phase and uses flashbacks to build the girl's character. The questionable aspect as to the identity of the main character i.e. being a possible serial killer is hinted at, but never fully developed to where the audience knows with certainty. We are left with doubt as is Annie.
I liked the soundtrack and background music used in the film. They didn't go cheap. When two girls listen to music that sounds like Katy Perry, you know they put out. The character of Kyle was too underdeveloped or under utilized, perhaps Michael was wanting to give more of the story to his wife and not turn this into an ego fest.
PARENTAL GUIDE: f-bomb, sex, nudity (Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, the blond from "The Divide").

I've always been a fan of Mike's movies, since he started in the industry and will continue to be one
by adding The Victim to my list!
I liked it because it embraces minimalism and getting a fun action-horror movie on a budget. It was exactly what it was billed as -- a fun, messy grindhouse film. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Chuck Sambuchino
Not your number one movie but it was entertaining. I have always like him. It is a little on the "R" rated side so it is not for kids for sure.Published 21 months ago by Gretchen
