Editorial Reviews

While traveling down a desolate road, Maria comes upon an apparently abandoned school bus. A girl has written "HELP ME" in one of the windows and Maria quickly discovers the messy secrets that lie in the back of the bus. As the killer reappears, Maria finds herself now hidden and trapped as the killer takes them on the ride of their lives. Their journey leads to a bizarre location in the desert, where they'll quickly learn their enemy is not who they think. The girls must figure out whom to trust, if even each other, if they hope to return home, alive or dead.

1.0 out of 5 stars what the hell was that?????? May 19, 2009
here is a brief outline of this movie....girl finds other girl chained inside abandoned schoolbus. weird guy drives girls to a castle (!) in the desert (!?)...some confusing scenes, girls walk around castle for 20 minutes of film's running time, more confusing scenes, inbred/cannibal character introduced and never explained...more confusion, some doctor shows up to try to explain the point of the film; cant tell if hes a good guy or not. you know what, i cant go on with this review. im probably confusing you. this is REALLY one to avoid, oh boy is it ever...

1.0 out of 5 stars What a piece of junk. October 26, 2009
Only the first 10. min's of the movie is good. Very spooky. The rest of it. No good. The movie is very slow alot of times. Some gore. Not much. Bad acting.

1.0 out of 5 stars December 29, 2009
The movie cover gives this movie wayyyyyyyyy too much credit. I honestly saw the box and figure it had to be good because of the front cover. Boy, was I wrong!!! My fiance wanted to continue watching it, which I felt was a punishment for something I must've done to him. The girls acting truly sucked!!! Big time!!! It was ridiculous!! I bought this movie for $5.00 at Walmart and I am really sad I can't get my money back.

1.0 out of 5 stars The WORST of Everything... October 29, 2008
....the script had to have been written by a third grader, the acting is worse than anything I have ever seen....I could go on and on.

Don't waste your time on this....'nuff said.

1.0 out of 5 stars A SHORT MOVIE YOU WISH WAS SHORTER July 14, 2008
By S. D.
I love a good horror movie. With the emphasis on GOOD. This one is anything BUT good. Granted, the first 10 minutes or so (when the bus is found on a dark dirt road) has some good tension and scares. But after that, the movie hits rock bottom. Our two "victims" spend most of the next day taking their time to look around this castle they are driven to, all while talking about going "clubbing" together once this ordeal is over. Come on already. Get scary! Nope. It isn't to be. And what scares they TRY to hit you with at the end of the movie are laughable. A sad excuse for a horror movie. Skip this one, save your money and time.

2.0 out of 5 stars what??? July 19, 2008
It might had something to do with me being intoxicated when me and my fiance watched the movie, but this is not a good one. i am a sucker for horror movies but at the end of this movie i was confused and dissapointed. like the other review...the beginning was ok. i actually thought it started pretty cool but then it got worse each minute.the acting was pretty bad and the dialogues didnt go very far. and at times i really didnt know what was going on. save yourself the trouble. anything but this.:-)
