Hit and Run review

I saw this movie when it first came out and recently watched it again earlier in 2018. While I do enjoy Modest Mouse's song "float on", which is played during the opening credits, it is somewhat annoyingly sung to by the lead actress and comes across as a really tacky intro with some overly ambitious credit effects that highlight the amateurish, low budget nature of this movie.

Before seeing this movie, I had only ever seen Kevin Corrigan in comedic, lighthearted roles. So it was certainly intriguing to see him play such an intimidating, creepy character and he really provides the only spark to this entire movie. Everyone else does okay for such a low budget flick.

Hit and Run is an okay movie and is worthy of a one-time viewing but there's just nothing that makes it really stand out from the myriad of other low budget horror flicks in its era.

I've not seen this since either the 2009 or 2010 October Challenge. Either way, I think I disliked it even more this time around.

The good elements Hit and Run contains are as such: 1) the main actress, Laura Breckenridge, was pretty attractive, 2) the usage of the Modest Mouse song "Float On" was welcoming to the ears and 3) some of the scenes, specifically death scenes, were acceptable.

Everything else failed miserably, though.

Most prominently among them, you don't feel an ounce of sympathy for the main character - whether she lives or dies, you really don't care. You dislike her boyfriend even more, though. And it doesn't help that you don't feel much sympathy for the murderer past a certain point. It's a movie with no sides to root for. Not only that, but some edits and cuts in this movie just look amateurish.

Now, some have commented that this film was trying to harken back to the days of 70's/80's slashers. If this was their intent, they failed miserably. After the initial incident, in which our main character runs someone over while driving home intoxicated, the movie almost turns into a character study. We see how she reacts, the trials of going through with burying the person she hit instead of letting the police know. And for 40 minutes, the horror elements are zilch.

If this character had been particularly interesting, or had this been done by the hands of a far more talented director, maybe it could have worked. For what it was, though, I was bored out of my mind. And when things do happen, it's not particularly good. This is just a disappointment of a movie, and does many things wrong. The points I gave it come from the fact that while this film isn't good, it's certainly leagues above the worst horror films. It's overly generic, and just overall not conducive to a fun viewing.
