Why did this movie feel like The Descent, only above ground? A group of British chicks, led by a touch as nails ex-commando chick, head into the woods for a girls hike... are those even common? Do groups of hot, high maintenance chicks really get together and plan a weekend of hiking and sleeping in tents, and think its a good thing? I don't know if I buy that.
Anywho, so the hotties head out into the woods, for whatever it is they're heading out there for, and they meet two groups of creepy people: a guy and two girls who look like a threesome gone wrong, and three sexy rock climbing guys, who seems like date rape waiting to happen. See, it gets all mysterious and thrilling.
One of the group of strangers are sadistic and murderous, and of course they want to play with the five slutty chicks who are dumb enough to be way out in the wilderness alone and too stupid to see danger when it's coming. Which are friend and which are foe? Which girls will live and which will die? If they're all out in the middle of the woods fighting for their very lives, then who was phone?
You won't understand that last question unless your an Internet geek like we are, so don't worry about it.

The Hike is decent enough as a backwoods torture porn kind of thing. It's got some blood, a little bit of skin, and of course there's a "crazy twist" at the end... maybe that's not fair. It's more of a surprise ending I suppose.
The movie didn't quite push the boundaries we thought it might, and could have used a bit more skin or blood; after all, the draw of this kind of movie is the nastiness, not the plot or acting. Still, it managed to be entertaining enough for us not to have regretted watching it.
|See? Almost Descent-like.|

The Master Says- C The Hike is your average, run of the mill horror flick; not great, but certainly not bad. If you like a good rape revenge story filled with some sexy chicks and some bloody violence, then you'll most likely get something out of this. Could be worse.
Final Thoughts- Any movie with Barbara Nedeljakova is worth a look see in our book.
