It seems two married couples, Frank (Oates) and Alice (Swit) Stewart and Roger (Fonda) and Kelly (Parker) March are finally taking a vacation, after five, long years building up a now successful motorcycle dealership.Read more ›
saw this film at a drive-in in the summer of 1976 with my dad and brother. It was not uncommon then to see a movie circulating in the drive-in theatres a full year after its release. The VCR and VHS were still several years away.
Roger (Peter Fonda) and Frank (Warren Oates) are owners of a custom motorcycle business on vacation with their wives to Aspen, Colorado, traveling in a luxurious new RV with all the
amenities imaginable in 1975. (The color TV, the stereo, microwave oven...goahlly!). On their first night camping out in a remote area, they witness a human sacrifice in the distance as
part of a satanic ritual taking place across the river. All hell breaks loose when the two are discovered and a vicious pursuit of the foursome ensues escalating into several attacks and car chases. Throughout the film, the motorhome is damaged and falls apart piece by piece as a metaphor for the group's shattered sense of security, diminishing sanity and a dream vacation which has turned into a run for their lives!
The movie's shock value for me was diminished only as a result of my vivid memories of several scenes and due neither to the passage of time nor maturity when I finally saw it for the first time in over two decades. It was still as chilling today as it was when I first saw it a quarter of a century ago!
Don't let the critics' maligning criticism dissuade you from watching this flick. (Hey, how many of us buy a book because it's on Oprah's list anyway?Read more ›
What is so disturbing here is that no matter where they go or how far or how innocent the people they encounter along the way seem, all are against them and the ending is really terrifying and a genuine shocker. You don't get to relax for one single second; it is a fast nightmare ride, with pieces of the RV flying off, the women screaming and the men yelling and all sorts of nasty surprises along the way, culminating in the aforementioned, even more disturbing, climax. Well worth the price, great entertainment.
