If only......

More movie makers would stop relying on huge budgets and focus on writing and getting your actors well practiced as well as rehearsed with one another. I think when a cast puts in the pre-production time with one another, it really makes a huge difference once they start shooting. If you have that, interesting material and a skilled production crew, you don't need to invest millions of dollars into the film.

This is a good movie if you enjoy science fiction, thrillers and mysteries. I am not into today's 80 million dollar schlock that has been turned into the prized gems of the major film studios. Give me an interesting story that isn't predictable, a solid cast of actors and a talented production crew any day.

Basically a family is in the desert with a tag along friend of the son, they run into some weird townies on their way to a ghost town and weird s**t starts to happen. Since it's made for TV, they really had to rely on creating a weird and interesting mystery so don't expect gore or dazzling effects. Just some creativity and a weird, almost senseless ending that may or may not tick you off. No dragging on, no bad acting and no senseless characters. This is a well made for TV movie.

We have literally reached a point where what should be made for the big screen is being made for TV and what is being made for the big screen...probably shouldn't be made at all!
