Maximum Creepiness
30 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

This movie sits very comfortably in its genre. I love horror films and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Tony Todd is always a pleasure to watch, and I would have liked to have seen more of him. We can only hope for a sequel or two that brings him back in this role.

The story centers around a group of high school students whose Saturday field trip goes to hell when their bus crashes in the desert with nothing in site but a creepy abandoned carnival. Writer/director Seilhamer has created a fascinating world of "The Reapers", who mysteriously appear when it's someone's time to go, and answer only to the one they call "Mother". This film introduces us to Railroad Jack, a particularly creepy Reaper with a fondness for his pickaxe.

I thought the plot and back-story were quite original, and there are some solid performances among the young cast. Excellent make-up and pretty impressive use of effects considering the ultra-low budget.

Considering how badly these kinds of movies can turn out sometimes, this one was a very refreshing surprise.

I solidly recommend it!! You won't be disappointed.
