Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

Snowbound thrills and cannibalistic chills highlight co-writer/directors John Geddes and Jesse Cook's frostbitten shocker about three snowboarders fighting for their lives in an isolated mountain cabin. They were returning from a weekend of snowboarding when a sudden winter storm left them stranded in the wilderness. But while the cozy cabin in the woods seemed to offer salvation, these three friends had no idea of the horrors that lurk therein. The cabin's owners are famished, and it's going to take more than venison to satisfy their ravenous appetites. Now, as the bloodied snowboarders realize they're about to become the special of the day, the vicious flesh-eaters find that their next meal isn't going to come easy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Scarce


Scarce is a pretty good low-budget horror flick. It's full of good suspense and will probably make you jump a time or two. It really keeps you interested in what's going on and doesn't really have a dull moment. On the gore scale it's around what some of the Saw movies are so be warned if you're squeamish. It's a pretty good story and while we may have seen cannibals before, Scarce gives it a somewhat new look. It takes place in Pennsylvania which makes everyone who lives there look like cannibals or dirty hillbillies. As a spokesperson for Pennsylvania, we're not all like that. The cast is good with Warren doing a great job of first being seemingly harmless and then turning into a psycho. For some of the cast, this is their first film, so considering that, it's pretty impressive. I enjoyed the female nudity especially Stephanie Banting's, I wasn't a big fan however of the hippie man-balls in the first scene. Anyway, this film shows that there are some good low-budget films that don't have the big studios behind it. If you're a horror fan, I'd give Scarce a watch. Gets A-List Rating of: Do It!

Wow what a truly rubbish movie, clearly very low budget and the acting is absolutely dreadful! Not worth the watch whatsoever!

Although I can't agree with the majority of the negative reviews, I will admit that Scarce isn't one of the better, more convincing films I've had the pleasure of viewing. My main gripes are that the screen play was rather amateurish and the makeup/costume person must have been on drugs because some of the blood and such was less than copacetic. For example: a bloody guy looked like someone had splashed fingernail polish all over him. And, really... just one more annoyance was the quality of the actors. It really seemed like these actors were reading from a script the whole time. But as I said before, I don't hate this film, it just could have been better. It's watchable.
