Not a bad movie if you've ever had the pleasure of sleeping in a car at a rest stop.
20 November 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have come to suspect most people sit in they're living rooms watching movies and have no other experiences. Movies often go from good, to great simply because you can relate to the situation. People giving this 1 out of 10 stars have obviously never spent the night sleeping in they're car at a rest stop. I watched this movie with my son about 4 months after we had done just that, so we could relate to being in the middle of nowhere at some rest stop on the side of the highway sleeping in our car and it made the movie much more intense for us.

Remember when Nightmare on Elm Street came out? EVERYONE could relate to nightmares and that's what made those movies legendary at the time. So go outside and get some experience in real life, maybe you'll appreciate your movies more :P

This movie definitely does not deserve the 9 I gave it, but its definitely better then a 1 as a lot of others gave it.
