Cheap, Slow & Disturbing...But a bit of potential, 19 October 2005
Author: Avram Jarek Fawcett from Mineral Wells, Texas

Well...let's see. A lesbian couple have engine trouble and end up being stalked by a crazy retard named Junior (well...I guess he's got a real name, ah whatever). There's plenty bad and a bit good about this movie.

What sucks:

1) Slow pace. We have a bit too much of this scene where one girl's alone and her car's shaking. It's supposed to be suspenseful, and it does make ya wonder. But then it loses its monentum by going on too long.

2) Apparently, they're supposed to be in Europe since the money is Euros, and they seem to have some kind of accent. But the gas station workers are clearly American. WTF?! And the girls go in and out of their accents. And the car ain't European, the steering wheel's on the right side. WHERE ARE THEY?!?! 3) Junior's daddy's acting wanes in some spots. He goes a bit over the top.

4) Junior doesn't look quite as inhuman as the cover suggests.

5) It's from 2002, but the quality seems aged, like 80s or something. I guess that's not really bad, but it suggests cheap budget.

6) Ending kinda sucks.

What rocks: 1) Cool setting. Plenty of outta the way areas with abandoned buildings in the background. Def. adds to it.

2) Junior's weapon of choice is this cool blade. Some kidna scythe.

3) Once the girl gets taken to Junior's humble abode, things get a little more interesting. It's all crazy and disturbing and crap.

It's alright for some mediocre horror. If ya like slashers, it'll give ya some fun. But it ain't no classic.
