      Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News The rambling story attempts to turn the genre on its head, but it ends up giving in to every slasher clich (Arquette himself plays a backwoods redneck). The acting ranges from abysmal to barely adequate. Rated: 1.5/4 Apr 20, 2007 Full Review Justin Chang Variety A mostly dull-blade exercise that offers little to think or scream about. Apr 20, 2007 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens Reminiscent of the 80's horror flicks with a sharper edge, but a genre unto itself, The Tripper is a trip and a half. Nov 9, 2019 Full Review Anton Bitel VODzilla.co David Arquette's debut is a so-so slasher elevated by its unexpected (but eventually overworn) political mask. May 27, 2017 Full Review Matt McAllister Future Movies UK Rated: 6/10 Oct 18, 2008 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures too many moments just didn't make sense or work in the slightest for somebody sober Rated: 1.5/5 Aug 17, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews

      steve d Far too cheap to work despite some fun ideas. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Poorly executed horror comedy. A good cast and a fun premise are wasted. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A surprisingly funny and brutal slasher film directed by David Arquette (yes, him!), The Tripper obviously thinks too much of itself as a satire, yet it nevertheless manages to be an original take on the genre that features a solid cast, loads of awesome deaths, and lots of laughs as well. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Just like the old saying there's nothing new under the sun can be said about this film. A done it before film with plot holes that cause this film to not make any sense. David Arquette had a great idea for a film but unfortunately couldn't execute it properly. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Well To Me Nothing Beats A Slasher Where U See Hippies Getting Killed Nonstop...So If U Hate Hippies Look No Further Than The Tripper Lol I Loved This Film! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie es a one hundred procent terribble. Not only is the rediculous thought of ronald reagan running around killing the most 'unreal' ''hippies'' ever characrarized in movies. seriously... american free love festival? tha banner says it all. In one word i would call this moive dum. The idea of the plot is funny, hilarious, but to make a movie of it is my opinon dum. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
