Storyline

While returning to Los Angeles in a trailer through the desert, the driver Neil convinces his friends Tara, Harmony, Loopz, Michelle, Lee and Cashie to take a detour to an isolated mine where it could have a plantation of peyote. The owner of a gas station advises the group to not go to the place, but the stubborn Neil does not pay attention to his words. While driving in a secondary road, Neil sees a girl and wrecks the car in a rock. He decides to walk back to the gas station to call a tow truck, while Michelle and Lee climb a hill trying to get signal to their cell phones. Sooner the teenagers find that they are under siege of a group of sadistic deformed cannibals and they have to fight to survive. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Enjoyable little slasher.
17 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

After the tired self-mocking slasher that came around 90's, Hollywood seem back to it basic (in horror movie genre). From major to independent are making a rendezvous' to those yesteryears now. Luckily, most of them are good enough, such us Jeepers Creepers, Wrong Turn, Cabin Fever and many more.

In independent-straight-to-video side, there's Detour, a little slasher that reminiscent of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hill Have Eyes. It clear that the budget is very low, but doesn't mean Detour is a low package. It's totally an enjoyable thrill-ride, from start to the very end. The gore is sufficient and the comedic situation is fun. And you can't believe whose going to survive toward the end; the characters that usually will never survive in this kind of movies.

Yes, it cliché, and some scenes are dull, but it really your time-killer. Watch this when you are have nothing to do, ask some friends to join you and you all will have a very good time.

7/10
