Good horror-comedy -action movie, 13 November 2008
Author: Jarod70 from United States

This movie surprised me-not only was there suspense but it also had some comedy-something I wasn't expecting from an action/horror movie. It also has a great 1950's flashback sequence which is my favorite part of the movie aside from the old cars at the junk yard.Some of the cars in the junk yard really gave the movie a creepy feeling.That is one junk yard I wouldn't want to be lost in! This also has a good cast considering some of the actor's were just starting their acting career. The character's Tom and Owen played well off each other and so did the blonde-Amy and her bitchy friend Kristy.Who ever cast the film did a good job.
