I Was Hoping For Better With This Cast
5 December 2016 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

I really was hoping for better with this cast and the idea behind this film but I found it somewhat disappointing - mainly some of the characters that ruined this movie. 3 female passengers that are witchy with a capital "B". Two that are "witchy" wives and one zealous religious nut - I really wanted to slap all 3 of them. There is also one really screwed up crazy woman, one irritating child and one freaking clownish cowboy. The rest of the characters are okay enough it's just the 6 I mentioned that got on my nerves. (Notice I said the characters NOT the actors themselves).

The story is good enough for a film of this type but I wasn't crazy about the pea-soup coming out of the baby doll... that was just dumb.

5/10
