Dark of the Night
28 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A woman named Meg buys a beautiful jaguar for her upcoming road trip to her parents house. Once the sale is complete, she hits the open road. But late at night while she's stopped on the side of the road, something strange happens. She hears what sounds like a woman gasping for air in the backseat. She turns the car light on and it stops. Then when she turns the light off, the sound comes back. Meg brushes the incident off and goes to her parents. While on the way home, she picks up two hitchhikers - a man and a woman. After a while on the road, the female hitchhiker in the backseat disappears and the man says there never was a woman back there.

The woman she saw was Mary Carmichael, a woman who was believed to have been murdered years ago. We also discover that Mary used to own the jaguar up to the time of her death. Meg believes the car must be haunted, so she decides to sell it. A few days later, she sees the male hitchhiker all around town glaring at her. Is the car really haunted or is Meg losing touch with reality? And who is the man stalking her all around town? All are answered in an explosive ending.

I thought this New Zealand flick was a very good suspense thriller! The scenes with the hitchhiker that disappears from her car is VERY unsettling. There are many more moments like that throughout the movie. The beginning is very well done. The middle frame is a little slow and drags a bit, but towards the end of the film it really picks up. Almost impossible to find on DVD or VHS, but if you can - check it out for sure.

7/10
