Storyline

On Christmas Eve, ten strangers board a bus traveling across Texas. Far out in the wilds they collide with a meth-addicted biker. Forced off the road by other members of the gang, the passengers take refuge in the hell hole of an abandoned scrap yard. They use improvised weapons and sheer guts to mount a defense against the murderous bikers but, as their numbers dwindle, they realize that their survival depends on doing the unthinkable. They must go on the offensive. Written by Sabbatical Pictures

Entertaining and funny!
27 August 2008 | by BornInBigDSee all my reviews

Saw the big "North American Premiere" in Dallas last night at Studio Movie Grill. Lots of cast and crew were there; it was different since we don't usually have this kind of excitement in Big D.

Lea Thompson and crew did a wonderful job of keeping us entertained, but the Spanish speaking Mr. Vargas (played by Everett Sifuentes) stole the show. He was adorable and hilarious. Subtitles were not provided, but that was much of the charm.

There will be no Oscar nominations, but for a new production company getting off the ground, a cast and crew that consisted of a lot of 'no-name' actors, and limited special effects (by today's standards), the movie was very entertaining and had a lot of great lines.
