Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

SHORTCUT tells the story of Nolan, Bess, Reggie, Queenie and Karl (all 16 years old), a group of friends who, returning from school aboard a vintage bus driven by the "old" Jo, run into an obstacle along the road that forces the driver to take a "shortcut". However, once inside, something unexpected awaits them. Everything seems to be the result of a trap devised by Pedro Minghella, a madman on the run from prison who is ready for anything to escape, but none of them imagine that a mysterious being hidden in the shadows will seriously endanger their lives. It is time for the youngsters to join forces, not to get caught up in fear and use all their wits to survive the long night ahead.

Majority of the scenes for this film drag on for way too long. Some scenes were unnecessary and could have been cut. The “backstory” had no real context for the plot and also could have been cut. This film has so much potential but went nowhere. The practical effects for the monster were great though.

Attack the Block this is not. Shortcut is too violent and foul-mouthed for kids, yet too tame and juvenile for adults, bound to leave horror aficionados indifferent. You’ll be better off watching Jeepers Creepers 2 instead, and that’s really saying something.

The wheels come off Shortcut pretty much the moment the kids have to flee that bus.
