Atrocious on so many levels..
A group of these young friends, while on a road trip stumble into a biker gang. On their way to find one of their friends, after she's gone missing, they find themselves lured into a trap, now turning their nightmare into something more sinister as they come face, to face with the supposed "Eaters" One plain sentence can pretty much sum this entire movie up. What a load of crap. This movie was just.. terrible. To start off, the acting. The acting in this movie was absolutely atrocious, and words can't describe how painfully obvious it was that these "actors" had the slightest clue on how to act. Their line delivery was terrible, their reaction acting, as well was dreadful, and their all around delivery of their characters was God awful, and just painful to sit through. On Top of that, the characters they acted as were flat out, to the core, completely clichéd. You have your typical bunch of clichéd characters, at this point, you could literally care less about. This film just delivers the same copied group thrown into the same, boring situation, just another time. The entire plot of this film was mixed together with clichés, and to top that off, it was presented in the most atrocious of ways. You have the same, agonizingly old situation where a bunch of characters are stuck in the middle of nowhere, more specifically, the desert. And you have the same old situation where they're being hunter by killers. The only thing that this movie differs with, is an execution of the same exact cliché, only in a more agonizingly boring, and convolutely ugly way. The pacing in this movie just threw any interest out the window completely, as we have an unwanted mixed bag of which sends the storyline, overall to be a horribly slow, slow movie. We barely see these "Eaters" until the 30 minute mark of the film, even then, we barely really get to see them at all. The film makes itself even more pointless as we get barely ANY story whatsoever. We literally watch these strangers of characters be thrown with these strangers of killers. What makes matters even more worse is the budget. With such horrible elements of the film, we get the horrid elements with an even more horrid budget. The cinematography was atrocious, most of the shots couldn't even focus, making things look blurry. And for the most part, we get ugly shades of yellow throughout this entire film, making even the smallest of things look ugly, and simply unsettling, and not in the good way. And finally, the audio.. Half of this film, the audience struggles to hear what their trying to say as it pans in, and out constantly, making it not only frustrating, but angering, and annoying.
In conclusion.. what an atrocity. I can honestly say this is one of the worst, in not the worst horror films of 2015. Terrible, God awful acting, horrible elements, lazy writing, ugly technical work, and all around a jumbled mess of a supposed "film" I honestly can't recommend this under any circumstances, you're better off watching a high school film of a horror film, in all honesty, as this proves to just be another one of Lionsgate's dump films.
