Retired mountain climber Ward Donovan is working with the kids of his climbing school when he is approached by Mr. Barton. Barton has a proposition that he hopes Ward will not pass up, a rescue mission to the top of Puensum mountain to find a lost group of climbers. Ward tries to decline the offer but finds out that his ex was leading the expedition and she is one of the unlucky climbers that is missing. Ward has no choice other than to assemble a team and rescue the survivors, if there are any.
Arriving at the base camp, Ward and his team are told about the mountain and how it is considered off limits to anyone climbing due to the ancient folklore, but they head up anyway. Without being able to obtain any locals to help in the efforts due to the stories about the mountain, Ward is left with a skeleton crew to work with. Not being deterred by this, Ward is only worried about finding his ex, Kate.
When arriving at the first camp site on the mountain, they group finds that it is completely deserted. All of the supplies are still in place and new questions are raised as the weather is about to take a turn for the worse making it next to impossible to climb. Having Mr. Barton’s son, Tyler along to help with the rescue effort, Ward’s main man starts to think that there is something else afoot with this trip. As Tyler is not afraid to be frowned upon, he has his own agenda while on the mountain and will not allow Ward or his crew keep him from accomplishing it.
Moving up the mountain, a strange vibe comes over the crew as they hear what appears to be a creature growling. Not knowing what it really is, they try to focus on the task at hand, but once a local falls to his doom, the climbers are sure that there is something strange about this climb. When Kate, the lone survivor of the previous group is located, she knows the dangers of what this mountain holds, but not all of its secrets. As the group continues to climb into the altitude, they find a fast way down into what they can only believe to be an ancient city hidden inside of the mountain.
Killer Mountain follows Ward Donovan as he is only trying to find Kate, his ex that had taken a previous group up the mountain. Not knowing exactly what his new employer Barton is looking for, he is paired up with Tyler who is looking for something completely different. Not showing a care in the world for the survivors, Tyler goes off on his own to find a place that is only spoken about in legends. The ancient city is protected by something more powerful than the group can battle on their own and need to find a way to get away with their own lives. As the Druk, the mountain monster is tracking the group and feasting on the weak.
Just a fun climb up the mountain as you follow some experienced climbers being helicoptered up to their destination. With all of the things that could be called as flawed in this movie, you will just have to let them go as they do not ruin the storyline. With a huge beast chasing the group the entire time and the group not knowing about it, it is a great little monster movie. Although you do get to be up close and personal with the beast, it gets much more disturbing as you get closer and meet its offspring. Stay Scared.
