TTCsM is overrated. This movie is “better” — that is, worse.
Although in some ways, it’s just a glorified “Don’t Hitchhike” safety film. Ignore the “Virgin Spring” pretensions; that’s just something people say to excuse themselves to see it.
The TrailersFromHell guy is right: It’s a weird way to praise a movie, but, yeah – Most people should avoid it. Seriously: Don’t watch it.
