“We’re all on that same endless highway, the one with no name and no exits…”
Story: A lonely stretch of dusty highway is the stage for four tales of guilt and punishment. Vengeance demons in the rearview are closer than they appear.
Scares: Several nice shocks, and a chilling vibe throughout.
Splat factor: Lots of blood, and a few instances of body horror.
Closing scene “shocker”?: Nope.
Remake, Sequel or OG (Original Ghoul)?: A new take on the horror anthology.
Trick or Treat?: Southbound is a creepy little entry in the horror anthology genre, and does a decent job of bringing the scary. The “gimmick”, or wraparound story, manages to hold its own and provide an eerie ”
Score: 3.5 out of 5 pumpkins.
