Craig: We're going to have a morning tea and chat with our truck driver.
Nina: Are you serious? They just tried to kill us and now you're going to go ask for help? What happened to never leaving your vehicle?
Craig: Look if we need advice from 101 things to do in the outback we'll let you know.
Nina: But it just rammed us up the arse like we weren't even there? What the fuck are these truck drivers taking? Seriously where would they go?

frightening(ly) bad
7 August 2010 | by moshunSee all my reviews

irredeemable dross of the highest calibre.

cardboard cutout characters with zero personality fall prey to a decidedly un-menacing truck.

there are references to Cerberus and hell etc, but so flimsy and bewilderingly pointless is the narrative, score, acting and cinematography that you're just left wondering how this even got made.

who exactly sat down read the script and said, you know what, this sounds AWESOME.

it isn't even a good generic horror movie, it's the kind of film making that makes Eli Roth look like Kubrick

terrible.
