It's after midnight when Mel and Jules, two young women, return to LA from holidays in Mexico; they jump in a shuttle to head downtown. The other passengers are a nervous accountant and two frat boys, one who's been hitting on Jules. They're soon on unfamiliar, deserted streets - to avoid a traffic jam, says the driver - then things go from bad to worse. What's going on and where are they headed? Guns, knives, chains, a tattoo, and medication play in the resolution. Written by
Two girls, and two guys who they've just met, end up outside the airport late at night and boarding the wrong shuttle bus home. The driver has plans for those on board, plans that involve pain, possibly death and something altogether more unnerving.
It's quite hard just now to actually work up any enthusiasm for this movie, as plodding and bland as it was. Yes, there are the occasional moments of nastiness. Yes, there are the quirky plot points that are all slotted neatly into place come the climax. Yes, the ending is a bit different from your usual fare. Yet it still all feels stale and formulaic, somehow, perhaps because we've now seen so many of these "terrorised innocents" movies with their downbeat vibes. I'm not sure.
On the plus side, Tony Curran is very good as the quietly menacing driver and Peyton List is both attractive and likable in one of the main roles. Cameron Goodman, as the weaker best friend, isn't as good but is also given less to do so that may be the main failing there while the rest of the cast are so-so.
If this horror movie was a colour it would be beige, it just does nothing spectacular and drags on a little bit too much ages after you can see the climax looming over the horizon.
See this if you like: The Strangers, The Midnight Meat Train, Hush.
