Storyline

There is an old wives' tale that you should hold your breath when passing by a cemetery lest an evil spirit rejected by both heaven and hell gets inside of you when you inhale. Someone in a carload of college kids on holiday doesn't hold his/her breath when driving by a graveyard, allowing the spirit of a recently executed serial killer to get inside him/her to begin a spree of body-jumping carnage.

Twice we see a character hook jumper cables to a car battery and then complete the circuit through the victim. However, the "shock" only comes after he turns the ignition. In fact, the 12-volt shock would occur at the moment the circuit was completed. See more »

Watch Fallen (1998) Instead
11 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watch this if...an hour and a half of your time can't possibly be spent watching something else. Fallen (1998) has a similar premise and is worth a watch.

Acting/Casting: 3* - I give this a 3 only because Katrina Bowden is easy on the eyes. She should likely stick to comedy and stay out of this genre because she isn't great at acting out horror. The acting is well below average and extremely obvious throughout the film.

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 2* - You can't tell me that even some of the worst special effects guys in the business couldn't do better than this. The special effects are embarrassing and the movie is unrealistic and all over the place.

Plot/Characters: 3* - A group of friends are on a road trip that is thrown off course after one of them is possessed by the spirit of an evil man that was executed 50 years ago. The premise is a rip-off of Fallen (1998), which happens to be a very good film. So if the premise interests you, check Fallen out.

Entertainment Value: 3* - If you like really cheesy horror movies, then you might find this worth your time. Otherwise, steer clear and find something else to watch for an hour and half.

My Score: 3+2+3+3 = 11/4 = 2.75
