JAMES DEAN as a serial killer,Maybe ?
24 February 2007 | by guestar57See all my reviews

Hitchhiker theasylum's (theasylum.cc) Starring Jeff Denton (interviewed), Shaley Scott( soon to be interviewed). Leigh Scott ( writer & director) brings us his version of the someone who you need to pass by and not stop for. This movie was scary and suspenseful. That said , It has some ugly moments with sheer violence and sending the wrong message towards female abuse. Denton plays the bad guy and has major problems with women, Jeff has played flaming genteels(Pirates Of Treasure Island) and good guys( Beast of Bray Road),This time NOT NICE !We have labeled Denton with JAMES DEAN look, This film is something DEAN may have tried if time and car error had been kinder. Shaley Scott , Is known for her singing and this film proves she can act too. We felt she was really given a opportunity to shine and that is very rare for your first effort on screen with lines. She is also featured on the box art, Which again is quite a kudo. The violence is very real seeming, Especially the gun play has a gritty hurt- producing effect. The ending is questionable for effect, I hate red herring stuff, But the female hero made it all work .
