The survivors succumb to panic, to madness; deeply buried secrets burst to the surface, and Christmas turns into a living hell.

This is a heck of a good little movie!
This movie was a nice surprise.I had never heard of it but it was one of those DVD boxes that catches your eye when you go to rent something.It turned out to be a great little movie.I call it “little” because it doesn’t have a cast of thousands or ten bazillion special effects.But the cast is excellent and the effects simple but very effectively done.
This is a road trip from hell movie.5 people set out on Xmas eve for their relatives house and spend the night caught up in a nightmare that wont end.This movie gets right to it,no 20 minutes wasted on the setup.The family is in the car and on the road as the movie begins and it doesn’t look back.I can’t speak too much of the plot or it will give the whole movie away.Suffice to say the plot is sort of mind bending once it becomes clear to you.
This movie proves you don’t need a computer to generate your movie and 100 million dollars to make a good one.See this movie.Its a keeper!
Why is everyone raving about this film?
If you are a horror fan, then maybe you have a predisposition to like this film merely because it is not garbage. Maybe you spend hours watching b-movie drivel and this was appealing because it had pseudo-competent actors and decent production value for what it attempted. But I was disappointed because of story. The end does not justify the means in this case. Yes, there was a twist, but a trick ending does not justify a lack of story logic to get there. This is a clear case of the script being written to the movie’s end rather than building it on real human actions or the development of the characters. In order for the end to be believable, you have to get the viewer there first.
It was lost for me once they got lost and kept driving down this endless road. No one reacted realistically to any of the deaths. They keep driving down the same road despite it’s ‘horrors’. No one would do that. The mother would throw away the cell phone because she was scared. That was a ‘contrivance’. A shotgun they bought as a present for an Uncle just happens to be in the back seat? Contrivance. They never once try to turn around and go back to the highway. Unrealistic. The characters were all clichés. There was enough substance and humor to keep me watching through the end but largely because Ray Wise gave life to an unrealistic character. No one loses a family member in a dark side road and then drives on hoping that something better will happen. I’m all for suspension of disbelief but…come on. Having said all of that, I respect what the directors tried to achieve. I just wish they had let another writer polish the script before they started. Story is everything. It goes beyond new twists in the genre or guessing the ending. Cinema is a journey not a destination. It takes you out of your everyday life by getting caught up in another reality for a couple of hours. That reality has to be REAL or it doesn’t work.
It can forgive the lack of FX and the missed continuity or even the wilding beating pulse in the neck of the mother once she was ‘dead’. That happens in even big budget films. That’s expected in low budget. But the story has to be solid. You can’t just buy it with a gimmick alone.
