As competently put together as this movie is, it imparted to me no sense of a higher calling, and thus left me unmoved.

The film is never less than entertaining, and it’s easy enough to get caught up in its roller-coaster narrative and impressive recreation of mid-century Texas, but its makers occasionally struggle to get a handle on their protagonist and the attendant themes of ambition, failure, and stubborn perseverance that he represents.

Director Ty Roberts’s film is unable to realize that its subject matter is that of a horror story.
