"The only reason we rented this movie was because of the familiar 'big' names [more like has beens] and the seemingly interesting premise. A young man is stopped by a policeman and a body is found in his trunk. He is subsequently arrested and under questioning, spins an elaborate tale that takes viewers through the last couple of days - he and his new bride are both on their honeymoon, and weird things start happening. This includes most notably, the deaths of people they come across - the young man blames all the deaths on his bride, a young woman who acts strangely and seems to spout Bible verses, who is a strong believer in the sanctity of marriage and who appears emotionally detached when receiving bad news.
The movie is unrated, and there aren't any explicit scenes. The movie is basically a B-grade thriller without much thrills, and some Lifetime movies were better made than this piece of drivel.
The so-called big names - Roy Scheider plays the motel manager, Eric Roberts has a brief cameo as a loud-mouthed businessman, Tia Carrere plays a voice instructor/guest at the motel who lusts after the young couple, and Darryl Hannah as half of a couple who stay at the motel. All of these familiar faces are rather wasted in this movie - all of them have interesting but undeveloped roles and all of them meet an untimely demise...leaving one to ponder and sort out - who exactly is the killer? There is an abrupt twist at the end, but even that doesn't save this poorly acted [by the two leads, the names of whom I can't remember], weak excuse of a thriller."
Anti-marriage, anti-religion, dull thriller

"This was terrible! Lindy Booth as a psychopathic Christian zealot killing the "sinners"? No thanks. Also, for them to put Eric Roberts on the DVD box when his scene lasts about a minute before he is killed is extremely deceptive to the person buying the film."
Wow. How could they screw this up?

"If someone had said to me before I watched this movie "Trevor, here's a movie. In this movie, Lindy Booth and Tia Carrere make out. However, by the end of the movie, you'll wish you hadn't watched it," I would have said "Impossible. There's no way to screw up a movie that badly. Those two kissing will make up for ANYTHING."
I was wrong. I wish I hadn't watched it. Despite a steamy kissing scene between two of the hottest women in Hollywood (ok, Tia Carrere's not 25 anymore, but still not bad), I could have rented anything else at Blockbuster and been happier. Eric Roberts and Roy Scheider deserve much better roles. Ditto for Daryl Hannah. Lindy Booth has made some decent stuff, too, just not here.
The storyline is awkward and improbable. How did Lindy Booth get that woman up into that tree, anyway? With the rope? And then she tied her up with it? I don't think so. While we're at it, I'm having a hard time seeing her lift Roy Scheider and put him into a car trunk, too. I suppose that in the end she didn't really do it, he did (spoiler, sorry!), but even that is left poorly explained. Why did he do it? What's HIS psycho background? At least I wasn't expecting it to end like that. The Sixth Sense, however, it's definitely NOT.
The movie ends with the killer walking away after escaping from a police car wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and a State Trooper hat and jacket. Yeah, he'll blend right in looking like that. They'll never see him again. At least you don't have to. Unless you really enjoy bad movies. Then go ahead and see it. Thanks for reading my review!"
