review by
Mike Haberfelner

It was supposed to be a nice family trip with dad (Greg Violand), good son Steve (Jeff Denton), bad son Jay (Brian Nagel), and Steve's wife Jennifer (Denise Richards) and daughter Olivia (Malika Michelle), travelling cross country in dad's old camper van. And since they're good people, they pick up sibling couple Samantha (Mischa Barton) and Mark (Matt Mercer), whose car has broken down in the middle of the desert. Then though dad loses control of the car, it drives them miles off the beaten path in a wild ride that kills Mark, and eventually the van breaks down. Now that all is unfortunate enough, but it doesn't end there: During dad's attempt to repair the engine, his arm gets brutally mangled, when Olivia plays behind the van it suddenly kicks into gear running her over, and Jennifer starts to have weird visions - which all have to do with the former owner, a serialkiller (David Greathouse) who used the van as his favourite killing ground, who eventually got killed in the van himself, and who now possesses the thing. And apparently he hasn't given up on serialkilling yet, and thoroughly enjoys that the whole little group is dependant of the van, too ...


Now ok, storywise this movie is a bit too far-fetched to be taken totally seriously, even for a supernatural horror movie - but that said, this is one tight thriller, relying heavily on suspense and atmosphere, but not shying away from more graphic scenes. And camerawork making perfect use of both the interiors of the van and the outdoors scenery, as well as a very solid cast don't hurt one bit either of course.
