(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

The opening of NEXT EXIT is reminiscent of the ALIEN logo, but if it is trying to look science fictional, it does not succeed. It is more fantasy, taking a new approach to life after death. A man and a woman "meet cute" while trying to rent a car to get to the center investigating this. He has a credit card but his drivers license is almost expired; she has a drivers license but no credit card, so they team up for a road trip. The dialogue is amusing and worth a chuckle or two, but in the end the explanation for what is happening is dissatisfying sci-fi, and it could have used a better ending.

Released theatrically 4 November 2022. Rating: high +1 (-4 to +4) or 7/10
