Guide Review - 'Exit 33' DVD Review
Most cheap direct-to-video horror movies nowadays mask their inept filmmaking with slick cover art; Exit 33 can't even manage to do that. The cheap DVD cover showcases the film's only selling point: Kane Hodder, famous for playing Jason Vorhees in several Friday the 13ths and Victor Crowley in the Hatchet movies. Hodder is no great thespian, but he's more compelling than rest of this stiff cast. Perhaps the filmmakers know this, because he occupies the bulk of the camera time. Angie's on screen so little, in fact, that it's hard to even tell if she's supposed to be the so-called "final girl" -- particularly since she's so bad at it. She, like the other characters, are helpless victims in a threadbare story that's just basically a series of one person after another wandering into the gas station. It's repetitive, derivative, dull, cheap and feels much longer than its 80-minute run time. But other than that, it's a "gas."
Special features include commentary, deleted scenes and an interview.
