Not to be confused with that Larry Fessenden flick, this is a regional B-movie about the curse of Native American myth Wendigo lensed in Wyoming. Frank, Connie and Eric are flown by helicopter to a remote location for some moose hunting. Their party increases by one when the helicopter pilot crashes his vehicle after he is hit by a strong gust of wind as he is leaving. No one seems to mind that they have no way back and hunting guides Defago and Billy continue on as normal. But it seems Eric has ulterior motives on this trip as he wants to snatch some treasure on an ancient Indian burial ground (never a good idea). Billy, the resident Native American, warns against it and tells the story of how Wendigo came into being after an Indian chief failed to feed his people and was burned alive. Well, naturally, the white man doesn't pay heed to this Native American superstition and soon the ghost monster Wendigo is out get 'em.
Connie: You can serve all the apple sauce in the world but it's never apple pie.
Mike: Not even a slice?
Connie: It's not supposed to be on the menu.
Mike: I see. Well, I guess that lays our spoons on the table, doesn't it?
But, you know, I always carry a fork just in case.
Amazingly, Kener made one more film, a slasher called SAVAGE WATER. Amusingly, he has Connie reading a book in this with that title and "See the amazing motion picture" printed on the back. I'll get right on that. In the meantime, marvel at this amazing box art that brings up more questions than answers. First, nothing that cool happens in the movie. Second, why is a guy in a prison jumpsuit bursting from the skull? Third, who builds a train track into a large skull with only a one tooth gap opening? Questions, questions.
