** Connie begins as a sensitive outdoors type who finds disappointment in herself when she freezes in fear when confronted by a possible thread in the woods, yet her friend Megan with far less outdoors experience didn't hesitate to grab a knife. Connie from then on works on finding strength in herself, even embracing her feminine side with more revealing clothes and make-up, all of which gives her confidence to take down the killer at the end.

** Connie starts out as a sensitive outdoors type who finds disappointment in herself when she couldn't grab the knife when confronted with a possible threat in the woods, yet her friend Megan with far less experience could. Connie spends the rest of the film finding strength in herself as a woman, even embracing her feminine side with more revealing clothes and make-up, which gives her confidence to take down the killer at the end.
** With Warren, he starts out as a confident outdoorsman who acts as the leader of the group. He remarks at the start of the trip that where they were going was no summer camp. Upon injury from the killer, Warren is stripped of his confidence and forced to watch his girlfriend Connie fight their attacker alone. Shortly before the end credits, it is ''Warren'' crying in Connie's arms.
