Storyline

Jack, Bobby and Alex are on a dirt-biking vacation in the remote canyons of the Mojave south of Palm Springs, unaware that this part of the desert is the main route for illegal immigrants who are making a desperate run to the U.S. Riding alone out in this endless maze of canyons, miles from civilization, the three city boys stumble across the body of an illegal immigrant who has been shot to death. They soon encounter the killers: a couple of locals who have made a game out of hunting the desert-weary illegals. They quickly end up captured and imprisoned by these human predators and find themselves in a life-and-death struggle. Can their will to survive keep them alive long enough to escape purgatory? Written by John O'Callaghan

Great Story, I Wasn't Disappointed
18 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie and really liked it. Compared to other low-budget movies, at least this one was interesting. The story was good and I felt the acting was credible. I really liked the actors that played the villains in this movie, it's scary to think that demented people like that probably do exist. It was nice to see a low-budget movie that has something to say and wasn't about exploitation or titillation (Sorry, but I can only take so many naked coed vampires!).

The situations seemed real and I liked that it was filmed outdoors, not just in someone's house. I though it was cool that it had a good music score rather than a collection of the director's favorite songs.

Could it have been better? Sure, but I wasn't disappointed.
