She lodges in a hotel and later she meets and is befriended by the local widower Terry Stahl, who helps her from an aggression.

Near the beginning, Joanna skids to a quick stop onto the shoulder to investigate the odd music. The shoulder is a full shoulder, completely paved and her truck fits on it completely. She gets out of the truck and walks backward and is always on a solid surface. However, when she awakens, the shoulder is noticeably narrower. Only the drivers side tires are actually on pavement. The rest is just dirt. See more »
When the credits first start to roll, everyones name's turn and blur away to the next name which does the same. This represents the characters Joanna and Annie and how they co-existed in the same body. See more »
i'm really surprised by the low rating this movie currently has(4.8/10).i really liked it.that's saying a lot because i generally don't like Sarah Michelle Gellar.however,i didn't mind her in this movie.this movie kept me at unease throughout,not knowing what might happen next.the movie is filled with an air of dread.i also liked the look of the movie.very dark and atmospheric with muted colours.i found that very effective.the story itself is unique and is not predictable.i thought i had it figured out a few times,only to find out i was wrong.near the end,i came close to figuring it out,but it turned out i wasn't quite right.any movie that can keep you guessing to the end is doing something right,in my mind.there is lots of suspense in this movie,but no gore,which is very refreshing.this is one of the better suspense/thriller movies i have seen in a long time.i had low expectation going into this movie,and those expectation were shattered.if you're looking for a suspense movie with clever writing and good characters,check this movie out.for me,"The Return" is a 9/10
