Product Description

Un gruppo di ragazzi è in viaggio in auto per recarsi a un rave party: quando l'automobile si guasta, sono costretti a rifugiarsi in un motel che sorge in mezzo al nulla. A complicare le cose c'è anche la presenza di uno spacciatore di droga che li insegue per vendicarsi della truffa subita da uno dei cinque: ben presto oscure presenze, apparizioni misteriose e terribili miasmi cominciano a tormentare i giovani che, uno dopo l'altro, perdono la vita...

I watch this recently and afterwards thought that it was'nt too bad.Usual story of some people stuck in the middle of nowhere and a thing chasing them around.In this case the thing is quite undescribable as i could'nt really work out what it was but anyway the story unravels towards the end and believe me i did'nt see it coming.I would say a good film all the way through and a great finale.Recommended to horror fans and anyone who is willing to give the film a try.

I am a massive horror fan, always have been. I like to see original plots and ideas sadly there are not a lot of these about nowadays. If a decent formula is found they get repeated by making continuous sequels e.g. Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and more recently Saw. All are original and classic movies. On the flip side we have remakes mostly from Japanese films, The Grudge, Ring etc. mostly decent movies. Reeker falls into the later group, a remake. Unfortunately not a very good one. Whether or not the writer/ director realised it or not he has actually made a remake of a very good little known horror film from 2003 called Dead End. Same premise, similar plot, same twist at the end. It is also a much better film. More tension, more mystery, better actors and better humour. Buy this instead

We rented this film due to the title. With a name like Reeker what else could a person expect? We weren't proven wrong.

This is a cliched teen 'horror'. A group of teenagers break down in the middle of nowehere and are forced to stay the night in a creepy deserted motel. Sound original? No, didn't think so. But wait it gets better. Each one of them are hunted by a seemingly invisible being intent on destroying them.

The cast are virtual unknowns. I acknoweldge that in itself there is nothing wrong with this...everyone's got to start somewhere. The casting team should have just started somewhere else.

The script is minimal. If you actually sit down and taken into account the amount that's said in this film you'll find it's very little. The film consists of mainly screen shots which are so dark you can't see what's meant to be scaring you.

The nationality of Gretchen seems to be disputed throughout the film. One minute her accent is sort of English, then it's Australian, then it's South African, then someone states that she's Australian, then in another part of the film she seems to have become South African again. Consistency at it's best.

The effects deserve a special mention though. The 'earthquake' near the start is just clearly someone shaking the camera while the cast jiggle about a bit. The Reeker's effects...,well..., we think someone just held a lighter under the camera lense to capture the heat waves. That's about the extent of the special effects.

As for the much rated twist at the end...alright I didn't see it coming, but it's not exactly up there with Saw in the twist stakes.

Please folks unless like us you want to rent a film for comic value only steer well clear. It's a terrible film, with a poor cast, little dialect and very little to keep you on the edge of your seat.

This 2005 horror follows a group of twenty-somethings who break down at the isolated ‘Halfway Motel’ and come under attack from a mysterious and malevolent force.
The script is clever being a kind of ‘Grudge’ meets an extended ‘Twighlight Zone’ episode, yet the story remains gripping even though the cast lacked any form of chemistry as I instantly disliked three of them [lose a *]. The inclusion of Jake [the blind guy] should have been a good move giving rise to numerous ‘jumps’ and scares but was underplayed and only resulted in some ‘dumb’ gags [lose a *]. There are some good wisecracks as certain scenes are played for laughs and with a few gory deaths it will please most but it has a good twist in the ending that puts it all in focus [gain a*].
This didn’t resort to gratuitous nudity or sex to help move the plot along and was entertaining and as a 15 rating is well deserving of a **** , but I preferred the prequel [No Mans Land-Rise of Reeker].

A group of people are travelling to a rave. One of their number, the aptly named Trip(Scott Whyte), has made off with a large number of drugs from a dealer without paying. When he informs the designated driver Gretchen(Tina Illman) of their illicit cargo, she informs him that he's going to have to find his own way from now on. Gretchen drives Trip back to the diner where they had stopped previously for a rest. The diner is now a very different place. Dark and barren, devoid of life and there is a strange smell in the air. Oh, and there are dead people walking about....
Okay, this film is extremely derivative. The Final Destination series, Dead End, Wind Chill, Carnival Of Souls, I could go on and on. Despite having virtually no original bones in its body, I still really enjoyed this supernatural slasher. The characters who initially come across as quite annoying grow into proper three dimensional characters as the film progresses,and I cared about their fates. The resourceful Jack(Devon Gummersal) is an especially good characterisation, using his other senses to compensate for his blindness. There is a nice line of dark humour running through the film and the story remains entertaining throughout. The only things that marr the film in my opinion, are some poor CGI effects and a spot of over familiarity. Whilst it doesn't reach the macabre heights of the excellent Dead End, a film that it apes at regular intervals, Reeker remains a very decent effort and doesn't deserve the scorn some reviewers have poured onto it. 4 out of 5
