Sometimes you just need to get away, change your life and start over. Many of us dream about moving our families away from the hustle and bustle of the dirty, dank, dangerous city to a clean, calm, and most importantly, safe little town. Maybe settle down and write that great American novel, you know that best seller that has been brewing in our noggins for years.
Ahhhhhh ... sounds like a dream come true.
Well ... just hold on a second there city slicker! If cinema has taught us all one thing it is that your fantasy of relocating someplace remote and writing a book isn't going to turn out so good. Remember when Jack Torrance decided to take that peaceful job as a winter caretaker of a isolated Colorado hotel, move his family up there with him, and write a book? Next thing you know your bartender turns out to be Satan and your chopping up poor old Scatman Crothers. Not to mention that your wife turned out to be Olive Oyl and your son can communicate with the other side.
That wasn't what you had in mind was it?
You may have thought the city was dangerous place, but the boonies are filled with inbred rapists, demon bartenders and all kinds of strange monsters just waiting to get their hands on your naive butt. Well, at least that's what the movies tell us anyway.
Such is the case in Stephen Folker's latest movie, "Field Freak" wherein a writer moves his family to quaint little Beaver Pelt Falls, Idaho with intention of finishing his latest book. True to form, things seem great until a big harry monster shows up and goes all "Legend of Boggy Creek" on them.
Check out the trailer:
The story revolves around a family that moves into an abandoned cabin in Beaver Pelt Falls, Idaho. Charles (Dave Juehring) a former best selling writer, is desperately trying to pen his next book and needs a place free of distractions. Little does he know, his entire family is being watched. Strange bumps in the night escalate into a nerve wrecking encounter with the creature by Charles's wife Linda (Trena Penson). The story takes a wacky turn when they hire a psychotic, pest-control guy (Thomas Ely Sage) and our led to believe Rabid Beavers are to blame. It's not until they visit a road-side Root Beer Distillery and meet a man named Ned Perkins (Glenn Harston), that they learn what the bumps in the night really are. According to Ned, they're all going to die!
Stay in the city where it is safe people!
