Stilted, barely-there horror/thriller
After accidentally witnessing a serial killer's brutal murder of a policeman, she must race to get herself and her daughter out of the killer's path before his blood-soaked rampage includes them as well.
This was a really disjointed horror/thriller that doesn't have a whole lot going for it at all. Despite an incredibly rousing opening about the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations that are quite colorful and provide a unique look at the celebration, but after that isn't quite so exciting since the majority of the film deals with the chasing down of the lone witnesses to the detriment of all other happenings, so there's going to be a lot wrong with this. The first one is that the lack of victims means there's very little blood or gore, despite the initial murder sequence being one of the more bloody ones shown. There's also the fact that the film is incredibly one note, detailing her merely escaping and hiding only to repeat the process ad nauseam until the movie's over which is quite boring after a while and really leaves this one without anything going on in the middle parts of the movie with the same set-up repeating over-and-over. It's got a couple good chases, but not a whole lot else.
