It's Spring Break time! But instead of going to a big beach party, three college friends (who all attend different colleges and rarely get to see each other) begin their Spring Break by traveling to a remote home in the desert courtesy of a client of Rachel's father. The catch? Rachel has to take her two younger sisters along with her. Rachel made plans for her boyfriend Shane to arrive later that same night, along with a couple of his buddies.

On the way, the five girls encounter an old muscle car with tinted windows acting mysteriously on the road: driving up on their ass, pulling up next to them, revving the engine, etc. He soon drives off and is spotted once more, then seemingly goes away. Once they reach the isolated home, everything soon seems better and Rachel sends her little sisters off with some money and her car. Bad idea.

As the night progresses, and the boys never show up, the three friends begin to hear noises outside and someone keeps ringing the doorbell. What they first assume is a prank, turns out to be something much worse and with no phone reception (of course), they become trapped inside and must find a way to defend themselves from whoever is lurking on the outside.

MACHINE HEAD started off okay enough, but soon became a bit boring as the three friends ran around inside the house, kept looking out the windows, were freaking out and at times were at each others throats. Some tension was created. The acting was decent. Not the greatest location to shoot this sort of film. A nice twist ending helped it redeem itself somewhat. Average at best.
