Low key thriller that enjoys something of a cult following. Some may find it a little uneventful, but there's a great cast of quirky characters and it plays like an odd cross between a John Hughes brat pack film and Twin Peaks. An interesting oddity.

I would have probably loved this film if it weren't for Crispin Glover (an actor who I actually think is pretty damn cool). Keanu isn't great either, but he's much easier to forgive - and he redeems himself in the end - but Crispin is so laughably bad and out of touch with everything that is going on with the rest of the film. Frantically moving his limbs and pronouncing words unlike any other person on Earth, it just takes you right out of the film and makes you feel embarrassed for him. Even with its flaws it somehow seems better than other films that I felt were better crafted. Dan Roebuck's performance (which is also fair to say about his entire career) is very underrated.

One of the worst movies I've seen in awhile, despite the amount of young talent, not to mention Dennis Hopper. It was painfully bad. The same person who recommended The Descent also recommended me this one. Needless to say I will not be taking this person's advice in the future.
