Laid-back Jon (amiable Seth Foster) and his more high-strung buddy Gus (a solid performance by Charles Miller) find themselves being hounded by a strange force in a deserted woodland area. They seek shelter at a cabin owned by the friendly Marcie (an appealing portrayal by Elly Koslo) as well as eventually discover that they are unwilling participants in a secret government experiment.

Director Donald M. Jones, who also co-wrote the compelling script with James C. Lane, relates the intriguing offbeat story at a steady pace, makes nice use of the remote sylvan locations, draws the two main characters with depth, and ably crafts an absorbing enigmatic atmosphere. The pretty polished cinematography by Jones presents lots of striking surreal images while the low-fi (not so) special effects possess a certain funky dimestore charm. Although a tad slow and often perplexing, this genuinely bizarre outing is still worth a watch just the same.
