While this definitely isn't THE BEST HORROR MOVIE EVER it does have a lot of good things. First, it's funny as all get out. Maybe I'm warped, but I laughed and laughed both times I watched this. Second, it is kind of creepy, playing on that whole idea of bad things happen to people that hitchhike. Third, we get a shirtless, bloody Warren Kole. But the overall best part of the movie has to be the twist at the end. If you don't go into this expecting a whole lot, you'll enjoy it. If you expect to be shocked and terrified and left going, "WHOA", you'll be disappointed. But, if you take it for what it is - a quick and dirty cheesy horror flick - you'll be happy.

A Perfect Example of How Serial Killers Don't Operate
Captain Insanity | NY | 03/07/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)
"According to this flick 1 out of every 2 people are serial killers.
Serial Killers who are by no means methodical,
and kill simply when the chance presents itself.
Serial Killers who don't take their victims to a secluded area,
and are in no way sexually driven.
This is the tale of two spontaneous killers preying on the same group of unfortunate travelers, whose bus broke down in the middle of Murderville, USA. One is disguised as a trucker in shining armor, and the other as a hitch-hiker in desperate need of a ride. (Appropriatly named, "Wheeler" and "Rider"). Both killers eventually set their sights on the last of the passengers, Ms. Faruza Balk. What should have ensued was a wild game of cat(s) and mouse. What happened instead can only be described as ... well a tame game of mouse and mouse trap.
To say the least,
this installment of "Masters of Horror" is flawed at best.
At worst it seems kind of rushed.
Now I'm not going to point out all the mistakes,
'cause it would take a while,
and quite honestly, it's better to make a game out of it.
See how many flaws you can catch before the credits.
Trust me you'll find a bunch.
You should definitely rent before buying.
Soley based on the fact that this is a love/hate sort of movie.
And you won't know whether or not you love or hate it 'til you see it.
Regardless of all its mistakes, it was a fun ride, so I didn't mind purchasing the DVD.
But would I recommend it?
- Only for someone looking for a fun movie.
- But definitely not for someone whose a stickler for details.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Don't take rides and Don't give 'em."
