I tend to rate things a little high.
As a general rule, anything I rate 2.5 or less I probably wouldn’t recommend.
"I just don't want to end up some drunk weirdo with an irrelevant video store."
Let's be honest, no matter how good or bad this movie may be, it was NEVER going to live up to the awesome cover art (This poster was pretty good too).
I can't say I really loved or hated this. It was just okay. It never really got off the ground, to be honest. It's not quite fun, silly, or creepy enough to stand out. It's…
Micro budget horror about some people out in the woods and a killer snowman.
Well, it did what it promised, there were snowman murders. The killer snowman costume and murders are actually pretty decent and fun. It has the typical zany over-the-top characters of no budget movies, if you’re into that. And the soundtrack was pretty good.

For anyone who doesn't know, Stephen King has always been vocal about his disdain for the Stanley Kubrick film. He didn't agree with the casting of Jack Nicholson among other things, so he decided to work on a miniseries adaptation with director Mick Garris, who by this…
MST3K: The Return #2
Rating is based on the film.
5 stars for MST3K.
The host segments don't stand out too much in this episode (but really, how could they top that song from Reptilicus?). The movie riffing is very strong in this episode though. Honestly, what is going on with this movie?? I know nothing about the making of Cry Wilderness, but I have to assume they just wasted their entire budget and efforts on trained animals and said…
