Released to tv in April, 2011, and on dvd August 30th, "Roadkill" is yet another creature-on-the-loose flick from Syfy. This time it's a giant bird-of-prey, the mythical Roc, preying upon a bunch of youths touring rural Ireland in an RV, picking 'em off one by one.

With Syfy you never know what you're going to get. For every "Sasquatch Mountain" and "From Within" there's a "Mega Cleavage Vs. Gatorade." With a title like "Roadkill" the prognosis wasn't very good, but "Roadkill" surprised me.

The movie combines elements of several films: "Jeepers Creepers 2 (Special Edition)" (flying creature attacking a bus full of youths) and countless other flying creature flicks like "Carny: Maneater Series" and "Wyvern: Maneater Series," as well as films like "Wrong Turn" and "Dying Breed" (malevolent hicks in remote areas). It also has a subplot about an old gypsy curse, which is reminiscent of "Drag Me to Hell (Unrated Director's Cut).

Even the most casual genre viewer knows anytime a group of young people hit the byways for a road trip, it's going to end badly. And if the trip happens to be on the rural roads of a foreign land, you might as well pack body bags along with the beer, condoms and pot.

While the premise of the road trip gone horribly wrong is indeed an overused genre trope, fans shouldn't let that stop them from checking out the Syfy Original Movie Roadkill, which airs this Saturday, April 23, 2011.

Directed by Johannes Roberts and written by Rick Suvalle, this incarnation of the road trip to hell introduces us to five young Americans who decide to hit the back roads of Ireland for a scenic weekend. They haven't seen one another in a while, one of their clan has relocated to Dublin for career purposes, and the group sees it as a chance to reconnect before the grind of adult life begins in earnest. It may also provide an opportunity for estranged lovers to reunite.

They hit the road in a rented RV and take in the picturesque Irish countryside as planned, but it's not long before things take a dark turn when they cross paths with a community of backwoods gypsies. Cultures clash as they always do in these paradigms, and during a hasty getaway the group runs over an old woman with their RV. When they try to help, she uses her last dying breath to place a curse on the shell-shocked clan, telling them the "Simuroc" will avenge her and kill them one by one.

Rather than suffer the wrath of the locals who will descend upon them long before authorities can arrive, the group opts to flee the scene, having no clue as to the cycle of events which has now been set in motion.

Format: DVD
Part of Syfy's Maneater series, Roadkill (2011) is a monster movie with less than impressive special effects and is also severely lacking in the story department. For whatever reasons, the screenplay tries very hard to have the characters do and say completely stupid things, that make them as unrealistic and unsympathetic as possible.

A group of old friends meet in Ireland, and head out to tour the countryside in a rented bus. Stopping at the Wayside Garage, the group enters a small establishment selling souvenirs. A man named Luca (Ned Dennehy), who resembles a vulture, apparently runs the place. One of the group becomes interested in buying a pendant that Luca is wearing. After Luca swindles them, Chuck (Diarmund Noyes) jerks the pendant from his neck, and the group runs and boards the bus for a fast getaway. Unfortunately with Chuck behind the wheel, the bus hits an old woman, who before dying puts a curse on them.

It doesn't take long for the curse to take effect, as while the bus is stopped, one of the group goes outside, and is pulled into the sky by a Roc, a giant mythical bird. When the bus develops a flat, in a display of solidarity, the chicken-hearted group sends one person out to change the tire alone. Predictably, the Roc strikes again, carrying away its second victim into the sky. Besides facing the threat of the pursing bird, Luca wants his pendant back, and along with his gypsy buddies, is eager to turn the tourists into snacks for the hungry Roc. Things just get worse, as the clueless tourists bungle their way across the countryside, and their bickering and idiotic conversations get more frequent.
