Dan and Mindy are trekking home for the holidays. They immediately encounter some minor setbacks, but nothing can prepare them for the hell that is in store for them. A very pregnant Mindy and husband Dan are about to become the mice in a sadistic game of cat and mouse.
The concept is vaguely reminiscent of The Hitcher. But, in no way does Roadside try to impersonate The Hitcher. The script delivers plenty of scares and sees the film’s leads in constant peril. It’s easy to identify with Dan and Mindy. Like The Hitcher, Roadside is highly unnerving. The film is taut and filled with suspense.
The opening credits appear to pay homage to one of my favorite films, North by Northwest. And, I found that appropriate since Roadside delivers Hitchcock-esque suspense. Clocking in at around 82 minutes, Roadside is shorter than most horror fare, but it wastes no time getting started. »
