One of those nature gone bad films, this time because we have been depleting the ozone layer somehow nature knows and is seriously pissed off. A group of hikers featuring Leslie Nielsen as a racist hilarious jerk are out and about when they notice the animals are acting strange. From our perspective we see many animals looking angry, particularly birds but some bears, dogs and cougars but they seemed lazy even reusing some shots with this. At any rate, a girl is attacked by a wolf (which is awesome), so she and her friend leave the group to go get help for her wounds. Along the way nature goes even more berserk and starts to cause fatalities (the deaths are pretty wicked). The group starts to have a divide and they split into two with Nielsen leading one of the packs and the tour guide leading the other with hilarious result. If you want to watch Nielsen dance with a bear, rats that fly and various other things that shouldn't exist but they do then this is worth your time. I was at least amused, it's better than I thought it might have been.

Availability:  On DVD
