One helluva weird film but kept the attention. The sequel explains....
2 June 2019 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

I first saw this on a dvd which I own in 2007. Revisited it today n will be rewatching its sequel too. I fast forwarded some scenes. The movie did not make any sense at all then n will never if one doesnt watch its sequel. The film is about a young girl who runs away from home with her boyfriend. Both of em r aspiring actors n r headed to L.A. On the journey they park in some secluded spot n have sex. Dont get ur hopes high. It's a lousy sex scene n most probably Jaimie Alexander's body double. We get to c a truck passing by during this lousy sex scene. Later they escape an accident attempt by the same truck. The boyfriend gets down but the truck driver runs away. Later they stop at an isolated rest stop cos the girl doesn't want to urinate in the fields but she is ready to pee in a dirty toilet n when she comes outta d toilet, the boyfriend n the car r vanished. Now v come to kno where the movie is heading... But it doesnt make any sense. It has a killer, some religious fanatics, torture n some supernatural stuff. This was Jaimie Alexander's first film n had zero idea about her when i first saw this film. M generous with 5 cos the film started well n managed to hold the attention but one gotta c its sequel to dig it.
