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.

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).

A bit of a mixed bag here. You probably already know that this is a SyFy channel telemovie made with virtually no budget and with basic special effects. There was the making of an interesting story here but I don't think the filmmakers had thought too much about it and they somehow decided to try to weave in a love angle which really didn't work at all. The building of the story was OK up until about the two-thirds mark where the whole thing just slowed down and lost the plot. Again, someone had decided to try to add more backstory to the characters at this stage but by then it really didn't matter and just brought the whole thing off the boil. It was all wrapped up reasonably well in the end. In regard to the disk, the quality of the picture was regularly awful with far too much grain and washed out colours - but this was inconsistent - you get one scene that's terrible and then the next is OK. The soundtrack was nothing special and was just there to get the job done.

The oddest thing about this movie is how a mythical Middle Eastern creature ended up in Ireland. Off on vacation, liked the place, and decided to stay?
Otherwise, not the worst creature feature I've ever watched. The situation was interesting enough; a group of dimwitted friends take a road trip and land in the wrong place, at the wrong time, populated by the wrong sort of people, and end up in trouble thanks to the dumbest member of their bunch. A curse on their heads, a roc on their tail, and crazy locals given to human sacrifice, not the best holiday ever.
The acting is marginal even from the likes of Stephen Rea (arguable the most well-known actor on the roster). The dialog is rudimentary. They didn't even take advantage of the great locale (it was filmed in Ireland, but not a part I'd ever visit!). None of the characters is particularly likable, so when loses start to happen...........eh. Loved the roc though.
