While returning to Los Angeles in a trailer through the desert, the driver Neil convinces his friends Tara, Harmony, Loopz, Michelle, Lee and Cashie to take a detour to an isolated mine where it could have a plantation of peyote. The owner of a gas station advises the group to not go to the place, but the stubborn Neil does not pay attention to his words. While driving in a secondary road, Neil sees a girl and wrecks the car in a rock. He decides to walk back to the gas station to call a tow truck, while Michelle and Lee climb a hill trying to get signal to their cell phones. Sooner the teenagers find that they are under siege of a group of sadistic deformed cannibals and they have to fight to survive. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Take a detour, away from this movie!
3 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I expected little from watching Detour, but part of me was intrigued so I went on to watch it regardless. Detour does have some things that were not so bad. The photography is decent, with some fairly good use of colours and angles. The ending is scary, the one scene of Detour that genuinely is so. And some of the killings themselves in methodical terms are quite inventive. Unfortunately for Detour that is it for the redeeming qualities. I have seen much cheaper scenery, but the lighting generally is dull and the setting has been used so many times that I just didn't care. On a visual front though, where Detour was cheapened the most was in the special effects, which look so fake against the surroundings and they have a very unfinished quality to it. The sound effects manage to be bizarre and misplaced, while the script is lacking in tension and purpose coming across as stilted instead, the pace is leaden, the direction is flat and the story- if we forget for a minute that it is highly derivative of The Hills Have Eyes and pales massively in comparison- has nothing suspenseful or surprising in it with many of the scenes rather stupid rather than terrifying. The characters, aside from the obvious stereotypes, are both cardboard and annoying, Loopz being the absolute worst, and the eager but bland overall standard of the acting does little to help matters. It is true that the girls are incredibly beautiful and sexy, but what is there in their looks doesn't come across at all in their acting ability. The cannibals are not much of a threat if at all, alternatively as well as looking atrocious they are very characterless villains. In conclusion, not an utter catastrophe but best avoided. 3/10 Bethany Cox
