An okay film , but nothing special.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

This movie is by no means an excellent film. It's about a young girl and her father (Drew Barrymore, Matt Frewer) traveling through the American desert. Like a lot of horror/thrillers have done before, their car runs out of gas in the middle of a trailer park. There, Barrymore and Frewer rent a ramshackle camper to stay in until they find some gas. Unforatnatly for them, a killer is on the loose, who seems to be obsessed with Barrymore.In the midst of these murders, Barrymore meets and falls a handsome and mysterious young man named Jimmy (Andreas Jones) and befriends a young geeky kid named Pinky (Anthony Rapp). Soon after she discovers than one of the boys may be the demented killer.

I watched this movie awhile back on cable, mainly because there was nothing better to watch. Although it was interesting and fun, it just lacks something that would make it a classic. Drew Barrymore, as always, shines in this movie as the film's heroine and Andreas Jones is perfect as the charming yet creepy young man who catches the eye of young Barrymore. I recommend it for someone who is a Drew fan or a fan of cheap horror films. Other than that, don't expect much.

Not bad for a 'B' movie

This is the kind of film, that from the very beginning, you can tell right away, not to expect much. However, it does surprise one. It has it's moments of being really terrible (one scene in particular, with the land lady of the trailer park), and other times, where it involves you in the story really well.

I almost turned it off not quite half-way through, because it was so bad, but after the first murder arises, the film picks up, and you start to suspect who the murderer might be. Although, I'm a movie buff, I hardly think it was such a surprise by the end of the film who the murderer ends up being. It's not the most well-written script, but like I said, it does get you involved in the story, and that's the whole point really.

Drew Barrymore, in one of her younger roles, plays a fourteen year old, who's on a road trip for the summer with her father. Her parents are divorced, and is looking forward to going home the next day, from which the film starts, to celebrate her fourteenth birthday with her mother. Unfortunately, they are stranded in the depths of the Nevada desert, without any gas for their car, and end up sheltering at a trailer park, run by a wicked woman, with two very strange children. One, is a dark and mysterious boy whom Barrymore's character grows interested in, however is warned by more than just her father to stay away from him.

The film may be too slow for some, but I thought it was alright. I was able to watch it all the way through, which is more than I can say for a lot of films. This, being the type that it is, really isn't all that bad, and if you're a big Drew Barrymore fan, you should check it out. I think you'll also find a different role for Anthony Rapp in this as well, who is really good.

If you're interested check it out, however don't spend a large amount of money buying or renting it. It's not worth it, for the quality of film it is.

Good, spooky thriller

Drew Barrymore must have been about 13 when she made this during her career revival (after she had put her much-publicized substance abuse issues behind her), but she looks much more mature.This was the first movie I ever say Anthony Rapp in and he was excellent. He's got to be one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood today, if not THE most underrated, and his chemistry with Barrymore was pretty good. Matt Frewer turns in a good "Dad" role. The acting is pretty good on all counts, and it's creepy enough to watch once or twice, with a great "Whodunit" kind of twist between various characters. Cool scenes shot in a run-down camp trailer park, in an incomplete building, etc.
