This fun little thriller starts out with a robbery of a small bank and the brutal killing of both the female tellers still left behind.
We shortly learn that both killers are women who hide out in a ski resort but the plot takes another great twist as one of the women kills her partner in crime and then is herself killed by an unseen person with a very large knife.
Enter two groups of people who arrive at the resort and do not pay attention to the warnings of the locals about a killer spirit of an ancient medicine man.
The two groups are made up of two married couples and a group of 5 women on vacation. Needless to say both groups get tangled together when they find they have to fight the killer to stay alive.
There is plenty of nudity and some gore, but both are done without excess. The ending is not a disappointment at all and it is somewhat expected. Yes, this is a low budget effort, but make no mistake, it is done very well.
I have read a lot of bad things about this film, but I feel they are unwarrented. This film stands miles above the rot made today. I would really recommend this for any fan of the "slasher" genre.
I really do wish they still made movies like this.
