OK so at first glance we though this was a pretty clever promo for Trek as the guys in the trailer are pretty heavily branded and If that was what “Downhill – Evil Awaits” was all about then it would have been marketing genius!
A little further research, googling – “Downhill movie”, revealed that this is in fact a real thing and has received an average review of 3.9 on IMDB (that’s out of 10 not 5). Don’t get us wrong we love b-movie horror here in the mothership (shed), well most of us do (McC is a big wuss when it comes to horror movies)- This looks truly awful though.
Is it worth the £4.45 that it would cost to rent it on Amazon (we will let you know next week when we make McC watch it and review it).
For those of you who are genuinely interested here is the synopsis of the movie;
After his best friend dies in a racing accident, downhill biking star Joe agrees to get back on the saddle for an exhibition race in Chile. During a test run with his girlfriend Stephanie, they stumble upon an injured man, close to death and suffering from a mysterious virus.
If you still don’t believe it is a real thing then here is a grab of the IMDB page too.
