not that bad for lower budget movie
22 November 2002 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

this movie is not that bad in the end. the dvd sound quality is terrible. i got the disc in a 2 disc set with 2 movies on each disc...i wanted the movie kolobos which i liked on showtime beyond, so i bought it. i watched this one first because it looked like the most watchable of the 3 i had never seen before. the acting is decent, tho some parts are a bit silly, but only due to a somewhat weak script. some of the plot is just illogical, like the 911 operator who just laughs off the murder call, the fact that the hitcher so easily tracks this guy down, etc...but overall it doesnt hurt the movie in overall entertainment value. it is what it is...its a cheaply made movie that is somewhat ominous and enjoyable. its not oscar-worthy, but not too many movies are anymore. i liked the setting a lot (the desert), you usually cant wrong with this setting in the horror genre...some nice direction as well. 7/10
