One of the better SyFy Channel movies...
7 April 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

First of all, I have to say that for an original SyFy movie, then "Roadkill" was actually quite good. SyFy have put a lot of really cheesy and bad monster/horror movies out there, so it was a nice breath of fresh air to actually see something nice from them.

The story takes place in Ireland, where a group Americans plan to travel the country by an RV. However they have an accident with some gypsies and end up getting cursed by a dying woman. The curse is that each and every one of them will be killed by a terrible roc.

That being said, then I found the acting in the movie to actually be quite alright. And most memorable in "Roadkill" was Ned Dennehy (playing Luca, one of the gypsies).

"Roadkill" have adequate effects. Of course, don't expect to be blown away with award-winning CGI effects, this is SyFy after all. But still, compared to many of their other movies, "Roadkill" actually pulled off some nice enough effects and CGI. The roc itself looked interesting, though I was wondering why it had no feathers at all, it looked sort of like a weird, plucked carrion bird. But still, it worked out well enough.

You are easily immersed into the story and I found myself to be thoroughly entertained throughout the entire movie. So for a SyFy movie, this was actually not all that bad. I am rating it 5/10 only because it was a fairly mediocre plot that held nothing particularly new or interesting to be seen. "Roadkill" is good entertainment, however it just lacks that particular something to make it rise above mediocrity.
