Vicious (2003)

This flick was seriously low budget.  In fact, I think they blew their whole allowance on the appearances by Bill Moseley and Tom Savini.

Vicious is about a group of people who go camping for the weekend.  There's couple Doug and Barbara, and their bumbling friends Steve and Hal.  Apparently this was supposed to be a boys' weekend, but Barbara insisted on tagging along, and instituting a no-beer-drinking rule.  This chick sounds like a total drag.

Steve and Hal make a break for it and go into town to get supplies.  They make a detour at the local bar and pound a few brewskis before they meet Kane (Tom Savini).  He tells them that there's a great fishing spot located inside military territory, but don't worry, they won't get into trouble ;o)

Meanwhile, the military is having a bit of a problem.  Wallace (Bill Moseley) sails into town to let the local grunts know to call off the little "experiment" that's living in the woods.  He brings in a couple of Marines to do the job, and they keep their sights on Kane.

Nonsense ensues as Steve and Hal walk right into the path of the little "experiment", right along with the Marines.  The special effects in this flick were HORRENDOUS and they should have just made the killer a person instead of some half-assed monster.  The story was meh at most and totally ruined by the revelation of the predator.

By the way, I'm going to start doing this Flesh of the Stars style and note when Bill Moseley appears

*Bill Moseley appears at the 6:12 minute mark
