Movie Reviews

Average Straight-to-Video Horror Flick
Compay | New Orleans, LA | 05/30/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Hard Ride to Hell is an okay horror film, about what you would expect for most low-budget movies that go straight to DVD. Some aspects of the story are original, but overall it's like "From Dusk Til Dawn" meets "The Hills Have Eyes."

The DVD cover calls it an "unrated & uncut" version, but the gore isn't hardcore. There are a few torture scenes, a good bit of knife play, and bikers munching on sexy naked women. There are a few really funny moments thrown in such as the "Apple Pie" biker, especially on the part of Brandon Jay McLaren as Dirk. The downside is that there are plot holes, weak explanations, and story lines introduced only to be abandoned for most of the movie. I also wasn't a big fan of the open ending, which leaves the audience with too many questions.

It was directed by Penelope Buitenhuis, who has a great deal of experience shooting for television, so overall the movie is shot well. Since the movie was filmed in Canada, most of the cast are Canadian actors with mostly television experience. As a longtime fan of Miguel Ferrer (Protected Witness Eduardo Ruiz in "Traffic"), I thought that he wasn't used to his full potential in this film.

If you're a horror fan, Hard Ride to Hell is worth a rental. While not a film that I would have bought a movie theater ticket to see, it's still a bit better than most Redbox horror flicks. Watch it once before you decide to buy the DVD."

"This movie is reminiscent of the cult classic RACE WITH THE DEVIL just bloodier. Respected actor Miguel Ferrer hams it up as a devilish biker out to bring Satan's spawn to rule the world. A group of do-gooders stumble on this cannibalistic group and end up battling them to grisly consequences, aided by a Bruce Willis wannabe. The film has some welcome humor and launches Katharine Isabelle as the next scream queen. It's all mindless fun and should please genre diehards."
Tolerable for gorefiends, average for everyone else...

(2 out of 5 stars)

"The first reviewer encapsulated this movie very well, so I won't try and repeat what's already been said. All in all, this is an average B-horror movie, with enough gore and satanic/druidic religious reference to satisfy those who enjoy having that as a part of their horror movie experience. There really wasn't much need for a budget in this one, so the filmmakers did well with what they had. The real downside to this was casting Brendan Penny as the male lead who is supposed to be married to the lead female actress. However, Penny is so effeminate as to make it impossible to believe that he is a male heterosexual character. Actually, for the first 20 minutes (after the intro sequence), I thought Penny and the other male in the RV were a couple, and the lead female was a sister of one of them. Unfortunately, as that role was a key one in telling this story, this film barely makes it off the ground as being able to draw in the viewer as an observer of the storyline."
