A scary little thrill ride
2 August 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

LEFT TURN is a dark and disturbing short film which manages to supply a large amount of suspense within it's short running time(15 minutes).

Lucy Russell (The Lady and the Duke) plays Julie, who driving home on a dark and rainy night picks up an old woman who appears to be in trouble. Julie starts to have second thoughts about her good deed when something starts to feel very wrong about her hitch hiker.

In the style of "Don't Look Now" this scary short film has great performances along with slick looking sequences filled with tension.
