"Most of the reviews I have seen for this movie are very positive (which I think it deserves). The only downfall to this film is that there are a few parts where you have to suspend disbelief just a bit (ever seen a horror movie where you didn't?) But I'm a glass is half full kind of person. And this movie is a stroke of pure genious in the things in gets right. It starts off like it is just going to may be scare you a little bit and not hurt you too bad - and then it totally kicks your butt and keeps on kicking you after you are down. I love this flick, and I think most people who watch it will feel the same."
Well Crafted Thriller

"I saw Shuttle after it was recommended by a local film critic in Boston. It really deserved a better distribution than a few token cities. It does everything a good thriller should; it has characters in peril you are invested in with strong performances that deliver the plot twists. The ending left me with a sense of dread/horror."
The last ride you'll ever take.....3 1/2 stars

"Directed by Edward Anderson Shuttle is a thriller/horror that really is better than I had expected it to be. Seeing the trailers ahead of time I wasn't very impressed or excited to watch it. But I am very open minded when it comes to horror, so I will pretty much watch anything. You never know what films could be good or bad until you experience them for yourself. Granted this isn't horror heaven and it does stretch the truth a lot. But usually the more unbelievable a scary movie is, in most cases the better it turns out to be. Like in real life women do not always fall down when they are running, or always go up the stairs, ect. So when watching this particular film you have to be really open minded and not pick apart if four or five people could or could not take on one man. I rate this based on the acting( Which was very good). The direction of Shuttle was dark and dreary(Which I loved a lot). There were great characters in the film( You tend to like all of them in the end). I also thought the writing was up to par. (Very sadistic and deranged). You end up asking yourself in the end if that could really happen, I think it's a possiblity in this messed up and unknown universe. The film brought us plenty of gore and a lot of suspense that was greatly enjoyable. There are a few twists in the movie that I imagine noone sees coming.
Two young women who are just getting back from a trip to Mexico find themselves caught in a deadly game of survival after taking from what seems to be a normal shuttle ride home.
This film will have you thinking twice about taking rides from cheaper shuttles or for that fact riding home with anyone who is unknown to you. Buckle up or maybe in this case you shouldn't, and enjoy the ride. I do recommend this for a fun and entertaining watch for horror fans. Probably is not for anyone, but I will take my chances on the recommendation."
Nice little thrill

"I was pleasantly surprised. I read some good reviews and said okay. Then I watched the trailer and thought maybe not but I rented it anyway and it was pretty good.
Acting was good and there was enough tension throughout to keep me into it. The director did a real good job with what he had. A low budget movie that made the most of it.
If you like this movie I highly recommend "Splinter".

"This turned out to be a very good movie. Acting was great. I asked myself how I would have acted if it was me on the Shuttle?? Probably the same. Who wants to believe people would do something so horrible as the driver of the Shuttle? Most of us have been on a Shuttle to and from airports more than once with success."
