In one of the biggest examples of not using detours three college students find themselves stranded in the mean dark streets of Skid Row when their car breaks down. Confronted by a gang of homeless people the three are taken hostage and tormented. When one of the students stupidly decides to piss off Wilco, the head of the gang, they are killed by the group. Well all but our lead student Marshall who manages to escape. Naked and afraid he goes on the run with the homeless horde on his tail.
God this film is bloody boring, there is no real tension, the acting is dire and it looks like a student film. I assume the director was trying to go for an 80’s feel, and if that is the case it does it well, the sound track however feels cheap. This is the type of film you would see in the cheap bins in your local poundshop in a year or two and even then I can’ see it being a hit. The story lacks any kind of punch. We have seen so many great cat and mouse horrors over the years but alas this isn’t going on that list.
This is the first contender for the 2017 worst films of year.
