A college-age brother and sister get more than they bargained for on their road trip home from spring break.

    I really enjoyed this movie. And I feel most reviewers are short-changing this film by lumping it in with other lesser movies as a "teen slasher flick".

    This was my take on it- There were some serious jumps (at least for me and others in theater) and definitely some creepy pit of your stomach tension. This I felt was achieved by the director not showing a lot and letting the audience figure some things out for itself (or have their own theories about this thing and its origins). Also, I felt the reactions of the characters to what they are witnessing was realistic-as opposed to what people usually do in movies today.

    If you are looking for a lazy movie-going-experience where everything is explained and wrapped in a nice pretty package in 90 minutes-this is not your movie.

    On the other hand if you are willing to suspend belief and watch a fun, scary, interesting, surprising monster movie where you may have to come to your own conclusions about some plot points -I would recommend this movie to you.
