The Zero Boys (1986)
90 min.
Directed by Nico Mastorakis.
With Daniel Hirsch, Zoe Kelli Simon, Nicole Rio, Tom Shell, Jared Moses, Crystal Carson, Joe Estevez, Gary Jochimsen, John Michaels.
A trio of survival game pros (christened 'The Zero Boys') and their female companions head out to the woods for a little R & R after a big contest win.

There, they stumble on a vacated cabin where they can enjoy themselves in privacy...until an unseen killer decides he wants them all to play a game of *real* survival.

This action-tinged horror is surprisingly well-done and maintains interest throughout, thanks to a likable cast and some decently choreographed cat-n-mouse chases in the woods.

The ending is abrupt but intriguing.
