A group of college students decide to carpool on their vacation.  They get along “interestingly” until the driver, Gretchen, discovers that a passenger, Trip, is carrying drugs.  She gets really upset (as I would probably) and stops at a diner to kick him out. Only the diner is deserted.  The food is still hot, but no one is in sight.  Then, the car won’t start up again.  Stuck, the group makes the best of it (some sexually of course), but then they start to die one by one.

DJ didn’t really like any of the characters, but it was a good cast and the acting was fine.  It wasn’t too scary, but it was pretty gruesome if you’re into bloody goodness.  And I usually don’t like twist endings, however, I was impressed by this one.  Technically, you’ve seen it before, just not done quite so well.  In my opinion.

We both recommend it.  DJ only gave it a 55/100 thinking it was just an average horror film, but I considered it entirely delightful and gave it a 70.

About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
