A couple of college students known only as the Girl and the Guy are traveling home to Delaware the day before Christmas Eve. They're on a frozen road that the Guy is convinced is a scenic short-cut. In the middle of nowhere in below freezing conditions they are run off the road by a hit and runner. They soon realize they're caught in a supernatural bubble where a crime from 1953 is doomed to repeat itself, year after year threatening new victims. The Guy attempts to walk back to the last petrol station but his wounds from the crash are worse than he let on. Written by
"Guy" takes a veer off the highway and when "girl" protests, he tells her it's a "scenic detour". After further objection from her, he tells her it's a "shortcut". Very seldom is a scenic detour a shortcut. See more »

Okay, so let me get this straight, you think I intentionally arranged for us to get stranded out here?
I don't know!
It was an accident, goddammit! You saw the other guy! You think he was in on it too?
You know what, while you were supposedly unconscious, I got through to a friend's voice mail and I'm sure she's called the cops.
Would you listen to yourself? What kind of a psycho do you think I am?

This film was very well done. The scars are marvelous and the acting is terrific. It did have one flaw though. Every good horror film has "THE BIG SECRET", of "THE TWIST". This keeps the story moving and makes it scarier. In this film, the big twist is figured out to early. One can figure the secret out half way through the film. But just because the big secret is known, does not mean that this film isn't worth watching. There are still some scares that are really good and aren't seen coming. Because of this, I highly recommend this film to other horror buffs. It is a traditional scare, where the fear is in the situation and the people; not based in how much blood is in the film.
