Clumsy attempt of a horror movie, with four campers setting out to relax and enjoy themselves in the woods for vacation.

A cannibal killer begins knocking them off; fortunately for the vacationers, the ghosts of the killer's wife and two children are there to help them out.

At least that's what we could logically piece together from this bad low-budget mess.

Any good points? Well, the first victim gets a few stabs in the face which look pretty real, or at least that's what it looks like from the bad lighting and jerky movements.

And oh yeah, a few belty tunes canvas in the background; these classic ditties appear to have been written specially for this one, as we kept hearing the same theme song. Interminably.

Also known as Terror in the Forest. But a longer, more evocative title can't help this dud.

Watch at your own peril.
