Evil Dead meets Encounters of the Third Kind?
4 November 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

It's difficult to rate this film. First of all, it had a really nice vibe, in spite of the low budget and mediocre actors. In a world of movie recipes that result in the same regurgitated swill, this film rang original and true. However it is really hard to get past the boredom of the setup, which lasted for a third of the film and had no connection to the rest of the story, the lame rather than cheesy special effects and the bad acting.

Also, it was one of those films that don't feel interactive. None of the characters seemed to have any choice in what was happening to them and, while it was relatively easy to identify with the characters, you couldn't see any solution or recourse to their plight as a viewer, either. Things just happened, without any explanation, then the movie ended, leaving much to be finalized. Is that a hint of a longer story arch, something like the Phantasm films? It did feel a little like a Coscarelli movie to me.

The individual elements of the story were interesting enough, like the 50's angle, or the ending, or the motorcycle gang vibe, but I feel they were not put together right and it all fell short of what it could have been. The bottom line is that without the boring setup and with a little more work, this could have been a good Outer Limits episode. With better budget, this film could be redeemed by a well done sequel. Left alone, though, it might be a waste of time.
