Well this is pretty much the generation of horror that although is likely geared to the likes of me (because I'd have been 19 at the time of this release) yet somehow completely missed me. I guess a glossy superstar cast doth not a good movie make, and also derivative plot doesn't really make a good film either. What we have are a car load of stupid teenagers who hit someone on the road, and ditch the body without telling someone. Well someone hasn't forgotten and is bumping them off in brainless teen slasher style. Parts of this are alright and although it comes up short in many points it's actually quite easy to sit through. It just doesn't offer much of anything that most horror fans will be looking for. Still if you rarely watch horror and you like things to be pretty simple and straightforward than this may be worth a gander to you. At least it wasn't as obnoxious as it could have been right?
