There is an old wives' tale that you should hold your breath when passing by a cemetery lest an evil spirit rejected by both heaven and hell gets inside of you when you inhale. Someone in a carload of college kids on holiday doesn't hold his/her breath when driving by a graveyard, allowing the spirit of a recently executed serial killer to get inside him/her to begin a spree of body-jumping carnage.

Did You Know?


At the end of the movie when they go through the turn they're driving a older Toyota 4runner, but when they change screens and start driving to the bridge it goes back to the newer Nissan. See more »


Twice we see a character hook jumper cables to a car battery and then complete the circuit through the victim. However, the "shock" only comes after he turns the ignition. In fact, the 12-volt shock would occur at the moment the circuit was completed. See more »


McBride: You'd rather jack off a bobcat than stay here.

Skip It - Hold Your Breath
11 May 2013 | by whyseeitSee all my reviews

My 5 Reasons 2 Skip It

1. It is a bad rip off of Fallen (1998) - See It instead - Link below - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119099/

2. Terrible acting - The cast is terrible and the acting at times is obvious and painful.

3. Terrible special effects/editing - No excuse for how bad it is. The spirit leaving the bodies is hysterical

4. I watched it in Chill Network - I have yet to see a solid movie on this network. Not to say I expected this movie to be solid.

5. It is made by Asylum - Enough said

Recommend for:

1. Katrina Bowden fans - she is one attractive specimen, but I can't say much for her performance in this film.

2. Nudity fans - there is some modest nudity in the film, but Katrina Bowden isn't part of it.

3. People who love cheesy movies - it definitely fits the bill
