Before digging into the nuts and bolts that make up "Detour," let's briefly summarize a couple of movies. Wes Craven's low budget masterpiece shocker "The Hills Have Eyes," released to universal outrage in 1977, examined the tragic series of incidents that befell a family after their mobile home broke down in the desert. A gaggle of inbred cannibals (of course) moved in for the kill, and the movie quickly descended into a struggle between civilization and barbarism as the surviving members of each clan battled it out for supremacy. O.K. Now, in 1974 a struggling filmmaker named Tobe Hooper released a rather bloodless little film called "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre," a movie about a group of kids stranded out in the middle of nowhere facing down a family of lunatic cannibals (Hmmm, a pattern). The movie quickly descended into a battle between civilization and barbarism as one of the kids battled against an evil beyond reckoning. Why am I summarizing these two unrelated movies in a...
I was suprised. I started this movie, and very quickly I felt like I was in for a night of boredom. And that held for about 15 minutes or so in to the movie. Then the characters started to grow on me a bit,even the white ebonics guy. And then things started to get really freaky! The cast works very well once they get a hold on their characters, and everyone gives their all. Yes, there are annoying elements, like the white ebonics guy, but even he starts to grow during the movie, and towards the end I wanted him to live, just like the rest of the group. The soundtrack works very well, and has a little bit of techno, a little bit of rock, and a little bit of actually scoring that sounds amazing. There are also some very well shot scenes, and the movie looks very professional. While not the best movie ever, and far from original (it's like Wrong Turn meets The Hills Have Eyes meets Scream meets a zombie movie), it is still one of the better straight to video outings that has...
This Movie was a huge let down. I knew from the start that it was going to be a low budget rip off, trying to cash in on the moderate success of Wrong Turn. I still thought it would provide an evening of mindless entertainment. The script did not give the actors and director much to work with. It was full of lame dialogue and had a weak story. There was really no background or explanation for the cannibals that I could find and the setup was about as unoriginal as you can get. The acting was pretty lousy as well. Plus the picture quality was very poor even for straight to video. The worst thing about it was the ridiculous main cannibal. What was going on with that big guy's eyebrows...if it were not for the laugh I got from that this would have been a total waste.
