Not bad
26 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It might be easy to criticize a film without major stars, a big budget, and lots of special effects, but I found the film to be quite enjoyable. There is nothing spectacular about the story, the dialogue, or the acting, but it manages to entertain nonetheless. According to the filmmakers, it was an homage to the drive-in movies of the 70's ("The Hills Have Eyes"), and it certainly has that feel. What it lacks in originality, it makes up for in heart. I found the casting to be pretty good (especially the villain) and the stunts to be above average for such a small film. The film should certainly find a place on late-night television and for devotees of decent shoe-string independent productions.
