Sometimes, for good or bad, a movie is pretty much exactly what it aspires to be. Well, with this production showcased first on the SyFy network, what you expect is what the film delivers. So, if you're of a mind to see a large prehistoric looking bird devour a whole lot of people, "Roadkill" should satisfy your craving. Neither as original as you might hope or as inept as many SyFy collaborations, this can serve as relatively well done, but mindless, entertainment. A word of warning, however, for those intrigued to see the great Stephen Rea in the credits--the Oscar nominated actor plays a small role so unremarkable, anyone could have done it. Flying creatures are by no means unique to the lexicon of horror movies. Here, the creature effects are surprisingly nice and the attacks are pleasantly suspenseful. The cast is game and the action sequences are done with expertise. So, if you like this sort of thing, this is a solid entry into the flying bird monster mythology.

Where the film suffers is in plotting and its overly familiar elements. A typical pack of youthful character types is taking an RV sojourn across Ireland. Of course, they happen upon a band of Gypsies hiding a dangerous secret about an ancient curse. The gypsies are the equivalent of any backwoods psychos that you might see in any (and every) horror film. Cackling maniacally while being aggressively suggestive, the kids become defiant which leads to irreparable tragedy. Hey, but what about that curse and a mysterious amulet taken from the gypsies? Think it can have anything to do with an enormous carnivorous bird? Let's just say that our unsuspecting kids will see both the gypsies and the winged monster many more times before the film concludes.

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).

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.
