Two women friends
Mel (Peyton List) and Jules (Cameron
Goodman) return to Massacusettes from a
weekend in Mexico at an airport after
midnight where they meet up with two guys
Seth (James Snyder) and Matt (Dave
Power) who both hit on them.
Meanwhile, Mel finds out that her luggage
is missing and the airline representative
asks her to return the next morning to
check whether her luggage had arrived.
Mel and Jules decide to take a shuttle
with another passenger, Andy
(Cullen Douglas), downtown and Seth and
Matt join them at the last moment.
The Driver (Tony Curran) drives off the
highway telling them that this is a
shortcut and then the terror starts to
really happen as this driver is a
demented psychopath who forces these
people to do what he tells him else he
mames them or worst of all kills them.
The story sounds
very exciting as you imagine a shuttle
picking you up and taking you right to
your hotel to enjoy your holiday but yet
it's by a maniac. It's exactly what I
pictured it as the shuttle driver seemed
way too harmless and it goes to show how
deceiving some people can be.
There's great moments with the customers
waiting around at the airport and then a
nice greeting by the driver as
well as good shots on everyone having a
conversation in the shuttle.
Nice suspenseful shots on a car
swerving around the shuttle and aiming
full speed towards this vehicle which
looks very frightening.
There's alot of painful and deadly
moments including someone with his
fingers getting cut off while trying to
fix a tire to a shuttle and then the
madness begins in
which this scene looked incredibly intense and
almost making it difficult to watch.
Sometimes you don't know where the story
is getting at but at the same time alot
of scene's are intense with this driver
forcing people to do stuff as well as him
running anyone over by trying to escape.
There's some good torturous moments like
a nose being cut which seems pretty
twisted with this driver making their
kidnapping very unpleasant as well as
trying to suffocate another one while
trying to find some way of escaping.
A good distance shot on Seth trying to run away from the shuttle with
this vehicle chasing after him and a nice
shot on the shuttle charging in at him
with full speed and the others freaking
out which looked good.
There's good shots on Jules at a bank machine lighting up a
basket on fire as well as the driver shutting her in with good shots on Jules coughing and choking half to death.
There's also a nice shot on Mel trying to hide and the driver demanding to her to show herself as he's
threatening on what he's going to do to
her friend and then the driver walking to
show herself sobbing which looked quite
There's nice venageful moments too with
the survivors in which you wonder if they
will get away but yet it seems almost too
easy for that and you know something is
going to happen in which it does. There's
some mysterious moments thinking that all
the passengers are on the same page by
being kidnapped when one of them is
really working for this maniac in case he
is in need of some help if one of them
tries to pull off anything.
A great intense moment with Mel pointing a gun towards the driver and demanding him to do what she says
which looked truly intense and with all
the shots and blocking on these two you
just wonder if he will pull anything off
which definetly keeps you glued to
watching every single move on this.
A good shot on Jules staring at the driver and insulting
him with a nice shot on Matt driving telling her to shut up. Then there's a good shot
on her mouthing out obscenities
Good shot on Andy taking a knife towards the driver with a great close up shot on him
slitting his throat which makes you
wonder as to why he's doing this. Then a
nice shot on Mel driving the shuttle
with Andy pointing a gun to
Good shots on both Mel and Jules sobbing while Andy gets crazy with them taking off his shirt
and pursuing to molest them which looked
A good shot on Mel looking at a crow bar and quietly trying
to get her feet in order to grab it
towards her which looked carefully shot
on slick by doing this and making you
wonder if they will get caught.
A nice shot on Jules crawling on the road and then trying to
stop a vehicle with someone
trying to help her and then a nice
jumping moment on the shuttle smashing
into him at full force which looked
There's a good moment with both Jules and Mel sobbing and talking to
one another in a corner of a room and
explaining to one another as to why they
There's also a good moment with the driver getting forceful and demanding towards
both Mel and Jules as to take
off their clothes which looked
Good shots on Jules in
a shuttle with a gas pipe and her choking
to death making it hard to watch along
with a nice shot on Mel pounding on a door and crying while this
There's a terrific aggressive moment with Mel putting a sharp broken
mirror glass to her face and forcing the driver to toss his gun as there's nice close up
shots on him unloading his gun and
throwing it in a toilet.
Many terrific camera shots with Mel going in a
rage by stabbing the driver in the
leg as well as shots on her trying to
load a gun.
There's a good camera shot on the driver putting Mel in a wooded box
with her screaming and crying as well as
pounding trying to escape.
Bottom line is that there's alot of jumping moments in this movie with this
killer shuttle vehicle running over
people in which this shows that even a
shuttle for hotel people can be deadly if
it's used to kill others than a big black
truck like you'd see in Joyride.
The story mainly revolves with what goes
on in the shuttle but it does go to a
destination as two of the female leads
are forced to do stuff for this maniac
making some scene's a bit disturbing and
some good revenge battles too which
The movie is quite good
even if what was explained might seem
dull going around in circles. It does go
around in circles for a short while but
there's new deadly twists and
consequences with these victims. Plus
alot of the scene shooting looked quite
dark which is a perfect touch.
The acting is very
well energised in which the lead actor Tony
Curran (Driver) as the demented shuttle
driver really proved to be a worthy
character horror actor with acting so
seemingly innocent making you think that
he's not going to do anything terrible
and then he does show his evil side in
which is just convincing with his
menacing behavior. He is no doubt very
versatile with both of these sides with
Peyton List (Mel) certainly knew how to
bring on her energy in her role without
letting it ever go. She showed a great
tough attitude as well as showing her
emoitonal frights at the same time. A great raging moment with her smashing a mirror in an aggressive rage. She
really drew to the audience with her
anger too in which she portrayed a nice
character for this movie.
Cameron Goodman (Jules) knew her stuff
pretty well too with her whiney attitude
as well as being loud and high strung.
She certainly studied her role pretty
good and really battling it out with her
frights and struggling moments too. She
portrayed a perfect victim for a horror
film as one of those ditsy types. A great menacing reaction with her whacking a crowbar down with full
strength which looked very energetic.
Cullen Douglas (Andy) was certainly a great
key role to the film as someone who acts
negative and paranoid. He truly knew how
to act annoying as well as showing a dark
secret to his part in the film. He also
did well with his freaky behavior and icy
words when talking to anyone. He also
came across nicely by acting sleazy too.
Plus he looked great for the part as one
of those weirdos. He can be well
remembered for his role in this one.
