I saw a familiar title at the Red Box, “Thrill Seekers.” It seems they repackaged the cheap, Casper Van Dien made-for-TV “thriller” which I reviewed years ago on our old site Film Is Pwn. The review appears in the somewhat selling book, Mega Roos vs. Giant Crappy Movies, but since I’m not writing many reviews as I labor with a novel-in-progress, I figured I’d repost for your amusement:
Having just witnessed the film and staring at the DVD case, I must take issue with the false advertising. The cover, featuring a picture of Casper Van Dien looking slightly concerned as he talks on the phone, promises that Thrill Seekers is “YOUR PASSPORT TO DANGER.”
