  1. A convoluted mess of a horror movie.

    A mostly dull-blade exercise that offers little to think or scream about.

    From the twisted mind of David Arquette, come the Tripper, a Horror film, that he promised would change the way we see Horror. There's noFrom the twisted mind of David Arquette, come the Tripper, a Horror film, that he promised would change the way we see Horror. There's no doubt that Arquette set big expectations for this film, unfortunately the Tripper fell well short of achieving it's goals. A group of hippies take a road trip to this weekend music festival, in the woods of Northern California. The locals don't want them there and pretty soon, the party goers wind up being hunted, by an ax wielding man, who is convinced he's Ronald Reagan. The cast of friends that Arquette put together for this film is impressive, and there were some terrific cameos from the likes of Jason Mewes, Courtney Cox, and Pee Wee Herman, but ultimately they didn't do much to help this film. There are some funny scenes and some great lines, aside from that, this film is nothing different from your traditional, mediocre, slasher film. The one stand out was Thomas Jane who was thrilling as the Sheriff, but the scenes that didn't feature Jane were predictable and honestly kind of dull. The setting was different, the killer was certainly a nice change of pace, and the cast was top notch, but the movie itself was nothing you haven't seen a million times and I was left feeling less than impressed.
