Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

When Sandra and Rebecca borrow a car for a weekend adventure, the girls decide to go for a car trip to the country for sun, fun and relaxation! However, when they take a shortcut that lands them smack dab in the middle of nowhere and their car breaks down, an adventure begins that may be the very last one they take. When a tow truck happens by the stranded car, but what seems like a god-send quickly turns into a nightmare. The "good" people at the gas station act oddly, hiding something that the girls could not have ever imagined…a deep, dark skeleton…named Junior…and Junior wants playthings to keep him happy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Get Out of the Car! August 20, 2003
Format:DVD
"Junior" tells of a lesbian couples unfortunate run-in with the title character at some off road area in a foreign country. The film tries to remind us of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and others of its ilk by portraying a disturbed family and various scenes of torture and unease. There are two main problems with the film; one, the first half hour or so is really boring as we retread old plotlines of getting lost and the car breaking down. Two, an overly, overly, overly long scene concerning one of the girls being harrassed by an unseen "thing" while in the car. This scene almost made me give up on the film but I am glad I stuck with it as things pick up considerably in the last half. This part of the presentation is truly disturbing and gruesome in a TCM kind of way and makes the movie worth watching. The title character is memorable as is his chosen instrument of destruction. Not a lot of gore but some things do get a little messy. Overall, "Junior" is no classic but has enough going on to make it worth your time.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is the worst movie I have ever seen. September 15, 2003
Format:DVD
I watch a lot of independent horror movies, and this is by far the worst one I have ever seen. It's so bad that it isn't even enjoyable to sit around with your friends and make fun of it. It oozes badness from every pitted contrived pore of its withered 90 minute bulk. There is not one moment in this entire movie that is the least bit inventive. The dialogue is so bad that you'll want to grind a pen in your ear until you feel the sweet embrace of permanent deafness. It's a hilariously low-budget combination of tired cliches from other, better movies. Now, I rented Junior, and after just ten minutes into the movie I began to suspect that I had made a terrible mistake. At the end, not only was I depressed that I had wasted five bucks, I was depressed that I had wasted nearly two hours of my life. The only scene in the movie that's worth anything at all is the bizarre car scene, and even that is ruined when we get to see the dumb monster that looks like something a sugar-addled middle schooler would draw in a textbook margin. If you buy this movie, you will live to regret it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Junior....... March 3, 2006
By S.M.
Format:DVD
My review: Not a good horror movie by any means. Oh, the box leads you to believe it will be but it's not! There is gore/blood which makes me give it a 2 star. In a nutshell-- 2 women go on a road trip and their car breaks down. Along comes a tow truck and they think they have been saved. Wrong. One woman gets killed and the other is left to face Junior..... a sad pathetic killer wearing a mask. We learn that it's junior's father that has made him this way. The remaining woman must fight to save her life. I'm glad I only rented this movie and didn't go out and buy it. I've seen worse but I've seen alot better!!

1.0 out of 5 stars European Train Wreck May 4, 2004
Format:DVD
Once again, as a glutton for punishment, I rented this on a perfectly good Friday night. The back of the DVD intrigued me, to paraphrase... "two chicks.. a broken down car... a wacko... who will survive?...blah .. blah .. blah" Okay, so I figured It'd be a little like Jeepers Creepers or any of the typical "lost on the highway and killed by a stranger" flicks. Unlike pointless hackfests involving two relatively good looking (and in this case, lesbian perhaps) women, this euro-junk didn't "stoop" to showing pointless nudity. If it had, there might have been some redeeming value to the half hour country drive the female protoganists took. I'll save you the cost of renting or buying this mess by spoiling its plot in three sentences. Chicks drive into country in crappy car that breaks down. One chick gets whacked by "junior" the other gets captured. Chick breaks free whacks junior but gets whacked in turn by junior's dad. The End. This could have easily been distilled into an old episode of "Tales from the Darkside" or even "Monsters". The movie dragged, and dragged and dragged on.
Endless scenes of English? countryside, poor paving and dialogue... oh man... can I please have a movie where the "bad guy" doesn't stand there and explain the entire freakin' movie in 5 minutes at the end? "i'm junior's dad... blah blah blah.. he was born deformed and evil...blah blah blah... here is the whole point of the movie!... blah blah blah" That's why silence of the lambs was so cool, the freak in that movie didn't explain himself, he just did evil stuff to people and didn't give a care about what people thought. ::sigh:: 1 star people. No Production value, no special effects, (unless you like phony chopped off rubber heads that leak Ketchup), awful and often ponderous dialogue.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, disappointing movie! Turn up the TV!!! April 11, 2005
Format:DVD
I got this movie as a gift. I watched it about 2 months ago, and it was pretty disappointing. The movie has horrible sound, you have to turn your tv up full blast to even hear the darn thing! The scene where the one girl is in the car by herself with someone outside the car is ok, but a little silly too if you think about it! Some bad acting as well! The scene where the one passer-by says step on the gas, is absolutely horrible acting! Not an awful movie, but not really that good either!

3.0 out of 5 stars STOP, DROP, AND ROLL. October 24, 2011
Format:DVD
The movie opens with a woman looking like she is preparing to go out, but instead hangs herself. After the opening credits, which are done in red so we know it will be a good movie, 2 women decide to go on a holiday. Their car breaks down. This is the first car I have seen overheat because they were trying to start it. Phones have dead batteries (they work later) and they can't read a map. One of them decides to go back to the service station for help while the other remains with the car...because they don't want anybody to steal it? European title is "Engine Trouble." But since "Junior" did so well in 1994, they opted for it.

A mechanic fixes the car with duct tape. Rebecca (Cecilia Bergqvist) drives back to the station but there is no Sandra (Marlene Simons). The sounds from within the gas station suggest that there is the proverbial man-creature locked up. Not much to figure out from here. All you have to do is to connect the creature to the suicide woman, have him get loose, give him a signature murder weapon or default chainsaw, add a gratuitous shower scene and you got yourself a hit slasher film. But NOOOOOO! Apparently in Belgium they have a different idea on how to make a Slasher film, there is no shower scene! Otherwise pretty much what to expect from a slasher.

F-bomb, good sound track, no sex, no nudity, chained up women.

That's right. Even the dump was too good of an area to throw this garbage away. Low budget, poor acting. Nothing good to write about this one.
