OK desert survival thriller.
8 February 2011 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Six horny teenagers decide to spend one weekend on the desert of California.After damaging their van they stumble into a band of drug traffickers camped out in a small valley.The fight for survival begins..."Survival Run" by Larry Spiegel is a pretty enjoyable survival flick that after appearing on VHS vanished into obscurity.The first half of the film is quite cheesy and dull,fortunately the second half is more exciting and mean-spirited.Peter Graves and Ray "Frogs" Milland are playing great villains and there is very impressive motorcycle chase.The characters are badly-written and the soundtrack is spectacularly terrible including ""We are young/ We are free/ Anyone know a better place to be?/ Takin' it easy/ My baby and meeeee...."7 drug traffickers out of 10.
