Well, this movie was definitely NOT financed by the Texas State Department of Tourism, lol. The movie will make you want to go anywhere and everywhere BUT the lone star state. The two teens in the story named Billy and Sarah betray their dead friend by going to his hometown and trying to cash in on his inheritance. When they get there, however, they soon learn that it will be a lot harder than they anticipated with the town being full of scary surprises - and not the good kind either. Its nice to see my old favorites like Aidan Quinn and Beau Bridges in a movie basically about young kids. I also thought the cinematography was especially well done given that this is a low budget horror movie. I wouldn't take my kids to see it because it's too violent but I would let them watch it for the lesson that you can't try to dupe someone without there being any consequences.
As a dutiful teenage girl and moviegoer, it's up to me to patronize movies with cute boys a la Josh Henderson. That being said, I'm fairly certain that the only reason they made this movie was to capitalize on his cuteness. The flick itself isn't bad, it's just kind of ho-hum in an average way and you'll forget it the instant you walk out of the theater. The only thing I kept with me was how pretty Josh H.'s eyes are. The story is about two teens from LA who are boyfriend and girlfriend who run off to Texas to take advantage of their deceased friend who apparently has a big inheritance. They lie and cheat their way into his belongings and then suddenly things go bad . . . really bad! It's a mix of thriller and horror stuff as well as a tiny bit of romantic cliches thrown in for good measure. On the whole I would say that the movie will probably only live on as a dvd rental for teens and young adults.
