I rented this a long time ago. Gary Busey was misleadingly given one of the top billing slots. Now I don’t know why that fact alone was the tipping point for renting the movie, but I also don’t know why I ended up buying the movie in the sales bin year later either after knowing the movie was terrible. I guess I just don’t make good decisions. I suppose that’s a given though.
The Car Ride Cliche pretty much plays out note for note. Some random couple that we don’t care about is killed off, and then there’s 10 minutes of driving and talking after five minutes of packing. Some young adults are heading off for a camping trip, and we all know how well those end up.
Instead we have Mario Lopez acting more annoying than usual. But as with most Car Ride Cliche and Slasher movies, that’s par for the course. There are only two somewhat normal people in the movie, consisting of one of the couples. Sure the guy is a bit of a goof, and the girl is uptight and lacking a sense of humor, but as we find out, she sort of has a reason. While in the forest, she reveals that she is pregnant, and the father to be is instantly happy, so for once you aren’t immediately rooting for them to die. The rest however are fair game.
