Storyline

It's after midnight when Mel and Jules, two young women, return to LA from holidays in Mexico; they jump in a shuttle to head downtown. The other passengers are a nervous accountant and two frat boys, one who's been hitting on Jules. They're soon on unfamiliar, deserted streets - to avoid a traffic jam, says the driver - then things go from bad to worse. What's going on and where are they headed? Guns, knives, chains, a tattoo, and medication play in the resolution. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

Jules' gag changes drastically after the shuttle crash. Before, it was very thick and wrinkled. But when she wakes up after the crash, it's barely wrapped around twice and perfectly smooth. See more »

A Simple Review
4 May 2009 | by jakburton76See all my reviews

I've just finished watching this movie and as always I refuse to give too much away on the plot and characters so here is my simple review.

The good points - Original plot, very acceptable acting by mostly unknown actors and OK direction by first time director Edward Anderson on a low budget. The bad points - Not enough time spent getting to know the characters i feel the movie could have spent the first 20 - 30 minutes getting to know about the characters, very poor colour and lighting in this movie everything seemed to have a pale complexion, its got your usual don't do that, why did he/she do that scenarios for thriller/horrors.

All in all could have been better maybe seemed a little too long based on the fact that there was no character development at all.

Average

Try and enjoy if you do watch it though.
