  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
On his way to burning down the house of the man who stole his wife, Charlie (Mackenzie) meets Vincente (Phillips) and agrees to give him a ride. They run out of gas in the middle of nowhere but come across Moor Lodge, a resort in The Last Great Wilderness where they go for help. But instead of help, what they find is a bunch of oddballs, and their trip turns into something weirder than they ever could have imagined. (Tricia Littrell)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture exhibits video-originated images that are generally sharp but lacking in finer details. The color scheme is milky and often very flat looking, with weak blacks. Smearing and shimmering artifacts are noticed, as is a distinct ringing around objects. Considering the source material, the picture quality is acceptable, but nothing to brag about. (Suzanne Hodges)
