4.0 out of 5 stars Eerie little budget horror, 5 April 2012
This review is from: The Traveller [DVD] (DVD)
This review has been written to avoid including any plot spoilers.

First of all The Traveller is a budget horror film. So it's wise to keep your expectations in line with this fact.

Nonetheless, the atmosphere is pretty damn eerie and the story was in my opinion, although a tad predictable, also a variation on the tried and tested cliches used within contemporary horror films.

Val Kilmer is convincing in his starring role as a mysterious stranger with a dark secret. The supporting cast turn in decent performances without being outstanding or stealing the show.

One area where the film falls down a little is some over the top gore scenes which I felt were unnecessary and detracted from the overall experience. Hence four stars instead of five.

Having said that, because I hadn't heard of The Traveller before watching and therefore had no expectations, I thoroughly enjoyed it as a budget horror title that was richly atmospheric and a bit different to more mainstream, high budget contemporary horror films.

With a price tag not much more than a rental, why not give it a go?
