|"Every 23 years, for 23 days, it gets to eat"|
A brother and sister driving home for spring break encounter a creature on an isolated country road.
This movie is as far from the typical horror movie as you can get. First there are none of the standard horror movie stereotypes. No nerds, no jocks, no dumb blondes, and no sex starved co-eds. Instead we have a normal brother and sister just trying to get home for spring break.

Keeping things focused on the two siblings, raises the tension. There aren't any extra teens around just to raise the body count.
As someone who watches a lot of horror movies, one that breaks the mold is refreshing.
