It's OK--a great ending helps
24 September 2007 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

A bunch of college kids are riding to this big party out of state. There's nice bland guy, the brainless chick, the smart sensible English girl, the jerk and a blind guy (???). They run out of gas and stop at a motel/diner that is totally deserted--even though it was full just minutes before. The phones are dead, there's no gas, the water doesn't run...and they have to spend the night. And there's a madman running around killing them off one by one.

The plot is so old hat this was almost insulting but it's OK. The characters aren't as generic as you might think and this film has a deliberate sense of humor. Also the acting isn't bad at all--Devon Gummersall and Scott Whyte are especially good...and look for the bit parts played by Michael Ironside and Marcia Strassman ("Welcome Back Kotter"). The attacks are very gory--no blood is sparred in this one and people can smell the creature before he attacks (hence the title). The main problem is the script isn't that funny or original. Despite the good performances this cast can't do much with bad material. The killings (love the images people had before they died) and the great ending do help. Also read the closing credits up to the very end--there are some very funny lines in that. So it's OK--horror fans will love it.
