Entertaining thriller
4 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

There is a winter storm moving into the Maine ski areas. At the same time, a bus is transporting prisoners from an overcrowded location to one with room.

The prisoners hijack and wreck the bus. Roy and his brother take the uniforms of the guard and the driver.

Nearby, Amy is at the house of her grandmother Maggie. She is alone except for Baxter, the red tabby that belongs to her boyfriend David. Maggie seems to be late, while David is having trouble finding a grocery that is open.

Amy recently went blind and is learning to cope. She wants to go to college, but David worries she can't take care of herself.

Roy is in the house but Amy doesn't know it. Any noises she attributes to the cat, but certain things make her suspicious.

There's nothing that special about this movie, but it's just chilling enough to be entertaining. Mae Whitman does a good job of being scared and an okay job showing courage in a difficult situation. Patrick Gilmore is quite good as Deputy Mike Webb, and dispatcher Doris is funny. She knows everything going on in people's lives, but this time that's a good thing. Also the actors playing the sheriff and the female deputy are very good.

There are some inconsistencies. If this is such a bad storm, why does it cause only isolated problems? Only when the script calls for it does anything happen, and then the storm is over just like that. And there is rain at first. In Maine? Plus in one scene Amy has an advantage over others in the house when the lights go out. The trouble is that there's plenty of light outside for some reason, so we can see just fine while the others stumble around blindly.

It's still an entertaining thriller if you aren't looking for much.
