Bank robbers trying to make a getaway run into Sasquatch and the usual ensues in this dull thriller.
Vietnam veteran Chase Jackson (Lance Hendrickson) has just driven out to fix his wife's car on a deserted, unlit country road when his C.B. starts squawking: There's something by the road, something big… Chase gets a fleeting glimpse of a hairy, man-like creature when he hears a sickening thud: His wife has been mowed down by a hit and run driver.
Years later, five robbers in gorilla masks – Travis (Craig Wasson), Vin (Michael Worth), Kyle (Alex Biando), Kayla (Karen Kim) and Wade (Raffaello Degruttola) – blow into small-town Williams Creek and rob the local bank, killing a cop as they make their escape. Meanwhile, Erin Price (Cerina Vincent), drives into town; she's escaping an abusive relationship and asks local woman Raquel (Melanie Monroe) – Chase's daughter – if there's a scenic route she can take. Erin and the thieves collide on the wooded road, and they take her hostage while they continue on foot, just ahead of Sheriff Harris Zeff, also a Vietnam vet, (Rance Howard) and his callow deputies, Officers Robinson and Logan (Frank Rivera, Chris Engen). The crooks leave the badly wounded Kyle behind, and he becomes the first victim of Sasquatch, but not the last. The Sheriff and his men find evidence that there's something in the woods that is isn't human, and Zeff calls in yet another vet, tracker Eli (Tim Thomerson), to help them out. Sasquatch picks them off one by one, forcing the cops and robbers to forge an uneasy alliance as they hole up in a deserted cabin. They're later joined by Chase, who's been ostracized since his wife's death for his crazy talk about a monster in the woods. Now everyone is singing a different tune – he may be their only chance of making it through the night.
The presence of genre regulars Henriksen, Thomerson and Vincent is the best thing about this tedious genre hybrid written by co-star Worth and directed by Steven R. Monroe.
