Riding the Bullet ★½ 2004 (R)

A death-obsessed young man (Jackson) keeps running from and into the Grim Reaper and his agents. Lame Garris/King collaboration relying on obvious shocks in- stead of suspense for its thrills. Tired hor- ror movie cliches abound, so it never gets under your skin the way it should. 98m/C DVD . US Jonathan Jackson, David Arquette, Cliff Robertson, Barbara Hershey, Erika Christensen; D: Mick Garris; W: Mick Garris; C: Robert New; M: Nicholas Pike.
